JAMstack is a web development architecture based on client-side JavaScript, reusable APIs, and prebuilt Markup.

According to the community website:

Your project is built with the JAMstack if it meets three key criteria:

  1. Any dynamic programming during the request/response cycle is handled by JavaScript, running entirely on the client. This could be any frontend framework, library, or even vanilla JavaScript.
  2. . All server-side processes or database actions are abstracted into reusable APIs, accessed over HTTP with JavaScript. These can be custom-built or leverage third-party services.
  3. Templated markup should be prebuilt at deploy time, usually using a site generator for content sites, or a build tool for web apps.

While this appears to encourage site designs that are js;dr, it is possible that a static site which is built by a static site generator that supports updates through APIs like micropub and webmention would be considered "built with the JAMstack".
