Background[edit | edit source]
Jackie was born on Cinco de Mayo, 1932. As a child, he dreamed of being a sommelier, but after an accident involving wine bearing, Jackie was taken to court and banned from ever bearing wines again. Additionally, he was given the choice between either prison or service in the armed forces, and chose the latter. By the time Jackie was fifteen, he was a junior private in the army. Unfortunately, he was dishonourably discharged for misappropriating a government aircraft, the Empire Sunrise. He subsequently moved into finance, where he was wildly successful, becoming the CEO of Bear Stearns in 1960.
It was around this time that the Belarus incident happened, in which Jackie accidentally transferred all of the money of the country of Belgium to Belarus, the latter of whom spent it all almost immediately on knock-off hand bags. Though this did cause an overthrow of the Belgian monarchy, Jackie himself felt no effects from the incident as he blamed the incident on the company VP, Milo Franks, and his investors bailed him out financially.
It is not known if the Belarus deal was meant to be part of the mission or not, but Jackie did accompany the team in the field around that time. His role is unclear, but he may have provided money for the war/mission the main characters were involved in, and was probably hunting mortgages

- HtP Yield relays that “Jackie will not yield in his dark quest for mortgages”. Likewise, in How to Give Orders in English, someone is told to “seize the mortgages immediately”; though the object is not noted, it is quite likely that Jackie is the one being ordered, given the previous quote. This theory is bolstered by HtP Guitar, in which someone says to someone else “I'll hand you the guitar when you give me back my mortgage.”; Jackie is the only known guitar player, and is the only character known to deal with mortgages/finance in general.
