I'm quite the opposite.
Fold. I flat call this exactly never. All we need is an A or K to hit the turn. Too many in the pot to mess with a top pair and a J kicker.
$1 in the pot and he raises $1.50? He could have way too much (a set of 6's or 8's, T/Q+, TJs, etc.) that has us beat, so let that quarter go.
Now, if I read the guy as over-aggressive, I'm three-betting this to $4.50 (so he has to put in another $3). I fold if he raises at that point. But really, how much respect can you give a guy who limps in UTG? I bet he does that a lot.
If he calls I'd check/fold the turn, and maybe check/call the river depending on what the board looked like. I wouldn't be looking to fire another bullet, even if he checks the turn, because he's only going to call us if he has us beat.
Anyway, I'd never limp with this hand anyway. If I'm going to play it (and I seldom do, unsuited from that position), I'm raising to $1.25 (because of the limper) and I'm pretty much making a 2/3 pot bet on any non-Ace board.
