Jeff is one of John's victims in Saw III. Due to his obsession with vengeance against those that were involved in the death of his son, Dylan, Jeff is kidnapped and subjected to a series of encounters with those he held accountable for the incident and is faced with the choice of saving them or allowing them to die in their traps. In Jeff's final test he confronts Jigsaw himself to prove he has learned how to forgive. Jeff tells John Kramer he forgives him before slicing his throat with a circular saw. Upon killing John, Jeff inadvertently triggers a device that kills his wife, Lynn. Before dying, John plays a tape revealing Jeff must undergo another test to save his daughter, but in Saw IV he is killed by Agent Peter Strahm, who appears while he tries to rescue Eric Matthews, shortly after.
