(Capcom's primary storyline)
In September 1998, Jack became angry by local "thugs" from the nearby apartment building, who had taken a habit of climbing onto the bar's rooftop. This was serious enough he purchased an S&W Model 29 revolver from the Kendo Gun Shop as a deterent, which employee Cindy Lennox was tasked with delivering. Jack's location during the Raccoon City Destruction Incident is not known, though he may have been infected with drinking water contaminated with a modified ε strain. Any of several Zombies which populated the upper level of the bar during its evacuation could have been Jack.
