To put it simply, Landon was a huge punk before he met Jamie.  He was concerned mainly with cheap and easy thrills and being popular, things that came easily to him because he was talented and smart and good looking.

Through his relationship with Jamie, he learned to appreciate much bigger things and much smaller ones.  Things like really caring for people and thinking about how one's actions affect other people and in many ways how to be a good person.  Jamie has completely changed Landon's outlook on life and on what is important, as evidenced by the fact that he would marry her knowing she hasn't very long to live.
