Hard scattered quarks and gluons have been used extensively as multi-scale probes of the strongly interacting medium produced in relativistic heavy ion collisions. The high statistics data recorded in the Large Hadron Collider and large transverse momentum reach due to the high nucleon-nucleon center-of-mass energy have opened a new era for the understanding of the mechanism of parton-medium interaction and for the extraction of medium properties. In this talk, recent highlights of the LHC program on the jets, coming from particles produced by high pT partons, are reviewed and discussed. Future performance of the LHC experiments on heavy ion jet physics at the HL-LHC will also be briefly discussed.
