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.[1]
