"Well, what do we do now?"
— Jack, The Scorch Trials

Jack is first mentioned in The Scorch Trials, the second book in the series, and is a minor character.


Jack begins to build a friendship with Thomas and was tasked with looking after the injured Winston. Later, during the massive thunderstorm in The Scorch, he is struck by lightning, resulting in his leg being blown off and his hair burned. It was said that he had been clutching his knee and writhing in pain. It can be presumed that he died soon after due to shock and blood loss. This is the last place Jack is seen; during the thunderstorm in The Scorch.

Thomas was also affected by Jack's death besides the deaths of Alby and Chuck.


In The Maze Runner, he is seen present during the Banishing of Ben. When Grievers attack the Glade, Jack fights them off alongside the other Gladers. As Gally plans to sacrifice Teresa and Thomas to the Grievers, other Gladers rebel against Gally stating they are going to escape the Maze, and Jack leaves with the others to try to escape. He is also seen signaling Jason to come join him. He survives the Maze Trials and moves on to The Scorch.

In Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, Jack is seen with Thomas and the other Gladers in WCKD's facility. He escapes with them when Thomas discovers that the facility is used to harvest the cure from Immunes. In the abandoned mall, Jack assists the others in finding survival gear and runs along with the others when Cranks begin chasing the group. He is last seen ushering the Gladers up the stairs but gets pulled down by a crank leading to his death

    In a twenty-second long deleted scene Jack is grabbed by a Crank while trying to escape from the mall, and another tackles him off a ledge. Jack manages to grab onto the ledge while Frypan runs over to help him, but another Crank jumps onto Jack, causing him to lose his grip and plummet to his death. A section of this is seen during the official trailer.
  • According to Wes Ball on the audio commentary of the deleted scenes, he said Jack's death was cut because test audience weren't noticing him.
  • It is unknown what exactly killed him in the film as he is never mentioned by the Gladers.
