Jim (or Jem) was the captain of a recovery vessel, leading Joey Ray and another Spanish-speaking scavenger. Either by accident or intention, they came across the remains of terran and protoss ships near Chau Sara. However, a protoss warship remained, firing upon Jim's vessel.
Jim was killed in the attack, his head splattering all over the cabin.
- Jim's portrait appears to have been 'liberated' from the StarCraft alpha. In the original version, he appears as the portrait icon for the goliath and dropship.
- A song in Wings of Liberty, named Jem's Tune, is the song that plays during the introduction cinematic, implying that the character's name is spelled Jem. However, the subtitles of StarCraft Remastered spells the character's name as Jim.
