Biography Edit

Friday the 13th (1980) Edit

Jack Burrell was hired by Steve Christy to help renovate Camp Crystal Lake for reopening, Jack, his girlfriend Marcie Stanler and their friend Ned Rubenstein arrived at the campgrounds on Friday the 13th, June 1979. Meeting Steve and the other counselors they will be working with, Jack and his friends hung around the lake with the other counselors, getting to know one another.

After dinner, and a few run-ins with the locals (including a policeman who asks if he smokes, which he declines), a storm comes in, where Marcie tells him about a dream she had as a child that terrified her during storms, and the two retire to a cabin and have sex, unaware that Ned's corpse is on the top bunk. Marcie then tells Jack that she has to pee and leaves, leaving Jack by himself, where he then proceeds to smoke a cigarette (which he earlier says that he doesn't) and is quickly killed when Pamela Voorhees stabs him through the throat with an arrow, his blood gushing. This is the first of many “under-the-bed” murders, like Debbie from Friday the 13th Part III and Robin from Friday the 13th: A New Beginning.
