Jayce.

He has damage and safety galore. All the things you need to beat Jax IMO.

Speed buff, Knock back, ranged harass, another speed buff.

ive seen ren able to counter jax 1v1 solo top as he can slice away from stun however once late game comes ren is way out classed
similarly riven can shield or q away to dodge stun, but cant win a toe to toe most of the time
also, having a hero on your team that gets a frozen heart helps diminish his damage with the attack speed debuff
but as with all OP heros best way to beat them is gank early like lvl 1 or 2 and often.
having a jungler camp top lane for first 10 min of game usually works, just gotta have a good solo bot
make sure to gank right after minion wave arrives so he cant jump to incoming wave
it doesnt matter how op jax is when hes 4 levels back
but then again jax #1 op so any good jax player will always win

Well, if Jax does leap away, then Nasus simply walks off. Counter Strike doesn't dodge Siphoning Strike, btw. Plus, Nasus would be extremely tanky. So, assuming Jax does stun Nasus, it would be quite impossible to get Nasus down to anywhere near half health, and Wither would be up again in around 2~3 seconds. With another Siphoning Strike to the face.

Nasus will be quite lucky to even acquire 75 CS in your average TT game. Jax will shut him down early and often, and out CS him by 2-3 fold. Nasus's teamfighting ability is also non-existent in comparison to Jax. Point being is that Jax will become fed regardless of what Nasus does, whether it be by early domination of Nasus in-lane, or by simply pushing Nasus out of lane and out CSing him naturally. The point at which Nasus can actually defeat Jax 1v1 is in a hypothetical fantasy world in which Nasus won his lane, acquired 80+ CS, and managed to make it to level 14+ with 3+ items without dying (which is never going to happen versus real and competent oppontents). In most real games, Nasus rushes his Trinity Force, and then is quickly Ignited and blown apart because he has no mitigation; or on the flip side, builds mitigation and then does 0 damage, in which his team is obliterated before Nasus kills anything.

I'm not trying to be negative, just realistic. There's a reason why Nasus has 0 play above 1400 ELO.

countering jax. use tristana (beacuse of ridiculous range at level 18) or any other ranged champion, build a little bit of attack speed, then get frozen mallet. he wont catch you, especially if you have decent speed boots
