John Fitzgerald "Jack" Kennedy (abbreviated JFK, callsign "Lancer") is a character in Call of Duty: Black Ops. In the mission U.S.D.D., he speaks personally to Mason inside the Pentagon, and is a playable character in the Nazi Zombies map "Five".
He is voiced by Jim Meskimen in "Five" and Chriss Anglin in the Black Ops campaign.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy was born on May 29, 1917 in Brookline Massachusetts. He was a United States Naval reserve member from 1941-1945. He also became a politician and eventually won the United States presidential election in 1960.
On November 7th, 1963, United States President John Fitzgerald Kennedy organized a meeting between himself and Cuban Prime Minister Fidel Castro at the Pentagon. He also invited Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara for support, and Senator Richard Nixon, as a courteous gesture of sportsmanship over his losing of the previous election. The order of business was to discuss the Cuban Missile Crisis and rectify the relations between the United States and Cuba. During their meeting at 3:00 PM, a zombie outbreak occured as a result of the experiments conducted in the basment of the Pentagon. The four politicians fought together against the onslaught of zombies and attempted to reach out for emergency assistance. Unfortunately, all of their transmissions were redirected to the Baikonur Soviet Cosmodrome for unknown reasons. As a result, they were unable to call for help and eventually ran out of ammo. Kennedy became separated from the group and was killed by zombies.
In the original timeline, it is revealed that President Kennedy actually survived along with the other three politicians, when the zombie outbreak at the Baikonar Soviet Cosmodrome ended.
- In the cutscene preceding "Five", John F. Kennedy says the word "Zombie" rather casually in response to the attack. This may imply that he has already had previous encounters with the undead or he already knows about the Zombies. This may also make fun of the fact that characters in zombie movies do not know what zombies are.
- JFK can be heard in Ascension by holding the use button on a red telephone when it rings. JFK will shout "Need some beans for the chowder here!"
- In Black Ops, Chriss Anglin provides a realistic depiction of his voice. In Nazi Zombies, Jim Meskimen uses an exagerrated New England accent.
