In the nuclear region of AGNs there is matter in the form of diffuse gas, (BLR) clouds, and stars, making jet medium interactions likely. We study the interaction of massive stars with the AGN jets. We analyze the dependence with the interaction height z of the double bow shock formed around each star interacting with the jets, and also the subsequent non-thermal processes generated at these shocks.
