What the hell? You're that courier Benny wasted back in Goodsprings. You're supposed to be dead.

— Jessup, Fallout: New Vegas

Jessup is a Great Khans leader holed-up in Boulder City in Fallout: New Vegas.

Background[edit | edit source]

When encountered in Boulder City, Jessup is holding 2 NCR troopers, privates Ackerman and Gilbert, hostage. He also accompanied Benny, who shot the Courier in the opening cutscene, and dug the Courier's grave after he/she was shot. He argued, albeit briefly, with Benny over the burial of Chance, whom he had watched out for since the onset of Benny's mission. Jessup was able to easily intimidate Benny into allowing the burial, as the other Khans backed his threat.

During many portions of the graphic novel he exhibits fierce loyalty to the Khans and more personally to Chance, watching over the troubled man as if he were a brother or son. It is no surprise that later in Boulder City he holds sway over them as a leader figure following the death of McMurphy.

Notable quotes[edit | edit source]

  • "What the hell? You're that courier Benny wasted back in Goodsprings. You're supposed to be dead."

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • If you help Jessup get out of Boulder City without killing anyone (through the speech check) he will say he has a long walk ahead of him, if you meet him at the Great Khan settlement in Red Rock Canyon, he will still say he has a long walk ahead of him.
  • You may randomly find Jessup dead near Vault 19 for unexplained reasons. This is probably due to the slight deathclaw activity in the area.
  • If you head to Red Rock Canyon after helping Jessup get safely out of Boulder City, Jessup will attack you ONLY if you have Raul Tejada in your party. Only the Great Khans that returned with Jessup from Boulder City will help him attack; the other Great Khans that originally resided in Red Rock will not.
  • If you resolve Boulder City Showdown diplomatically after stealing the Engraved cigarette lighter from him, Jessup will give you another.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Jessup appears in Fallout: New Vegas and All Roads.
