Jed The Mechanic is a character in Dead Rising 2: Case Zero and must be defeated in order to finish the game.
Jed and Chuck engage in a battle in the junkyard, where Katey is hiding. After Chuck wins, Jed mocks him, saying that even if Chuck has stopped him from killing Katey, the government will eventually do it anyway. He then stumbles against a stack of cars, knocking loose the car at the top. The blue junker topples over and smashes into Jed's head, effectively killing him. With the psychotic mechanic dead, Katey is safe once again.
