Jacob death.png

Jacob is an antagonist and a survivor of the outbreak in Z Nation. He serves as the primary antagonist of "Resurrection Z".


He was a part of Major Joe William's camp Province Town in Hannibal, Missouri before defecting and starting his own religious cult: The Resurrection Cult.

Believing that the zombies were resurrected and close to heaven, he created a church around them. Taking shelter in an abandoned church he rang the bell to have more zombies come and be part of his "flock". He also convinced three people from Province town to commit suicide inside the camp, only to open the doors for Jacob and his group. After taking over Province town, he had people choose if they wanted to become followers or be killed and turned into zombies.

When threatening Charles Garnett, Murphy steps forward and claims to be the new Messiah. Jacobs followers starts to doubt Jacob and in panic he turns his gun on Murphy. Garnett then jumps in front of the bullet and is killed instead.


Killed By:

After shooting Charles Garnett, Roberta Warren, enraged, shot Jacob in the stomach, fatally wounding him. He proceeded to reanimate and devour most of the flock.

As he was not seen put down after his reanimation, it's assumed he stills roam as a zombie


Nothing is known of his background prior to the apocalypse.
