In this paper, we present a simple numerical method to determine the optimal exercise boundary for American put option with jump risk. Our intermediate function obtained by the partial integro-differential equation can easily determine the optimal exercise boundary. We use finite difference method characterized by explicit scheme in continuation region and extrapolation near optimal exercise boundary. Finally, we present several numerical results which illustrate comparison to other methods.
