Jack 'Jazz' Pope is a ex British Special Forces. His parents are originally from the United States but moved to Yorkshire, England. Jack was born in Yorkshire and spent his entire life in England. Jack comes from a broken family. Parents became divorced and he struggled to adjust to the day to day life. Jack grew up to join the British military and spent years in the military. Jack was on a short leave and going to visit Chernarus for a short vacation with a couple friends of his. They where in Berezino when things began to happen. Things became terrible fast, Jacks training kicked in fast. Jack tried to get himself and his friends out of the country but he had no such luck, it was too late. Jack lost all of his friends when they where trying to escape. A small hoard of infected stormed the safe house they had been hiding in and Jack was cut off from his friends. Jack witnessed one of his friends be torn apart and then become one of the infected. Jack was chased and he ran and escaped to the tree line to the West of Berezino, to see the city just being overrun by infected. Jack ran to the hills, to the base of the Black Mountains, using his training to stay alive. Jack was sure to escape, but couldn't live with himself if he just left his friends to die, that's if they even survived that hoard. But he had to go back and see if his friends survived. Even if that means traveling all of Chernarus to at least know the truth of what happened to them.
