Jesse, the Deli Counter Man
“The turkey’s good. And it’s on sale!”
Dispensing meat and his own brand of homespun wisdom to his faithful customers, Jesse worked behind the deli counter of his local supermarket for years while still keeping all his fingers, earning him the respect and awe of his co-workers. Like any self-respecting entrepreneur Jesse started at the bottom, shelving cans, hauling boxes, and hustling carts from the parking lot. When a position in the deli’s meat department opened up Jesse was ready. Adept at small-talk, able to measure the weight of deli meats accurately with just a glance and beloved for his generosity with the free slice, Jesse was in his element. Unfortunately, the zombie outbreak left its mark. Traumatized, Jesse is now unable to slice anything and uses a frying pan to brain zombies.
