Jessica McCarney

Jessica McCarney is a character from the Dead Rising series of survival horror games. She is a supporting character who only appears in the first game.


Jessica is Brad Garrison's rookie partner. She is charged with watching the monitors for information on the person/people responsible for the outbreak. Like Brad, she is distrustful of Frank West, and patronizes him for being a civilian. However, she grows to trust Frank after he manages to retrieve the medicine from the food mart manager. Jessica would later be bitten by an infected Dr. Barnaby and becomes a zombie by the final hours of the game. She kills two Special Forces soldiers in her zombie form, and is found by Frank wandering the security room.

Other appearancesEdit

Jessica, along with Brad, made a cameo appearance in Frank's ending in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom.

She is playable in the iOS version of Dead Rising.

Trivia Edit

  • In the initial Dead Rising beta trailer, Jessica runs through the maintenance tunnels, presumably being chased by zombies. Then a bloody Jessica sits against a wall as Frank takes a picture of her, hinting that she was originally supposed to die much earlier in the story.[1]
  • When Jessica asks Frank if he knows how to use a gun, Frank utters his famous line; "I've covered wars, you know!". This line (which has become a meme) is considered the most famous line in the series and has been referenced both within the series and in general pop culture.
