[edit] Biography

Jeff is a cameraman, and works alongside journalist Elena Fisher as she attempts to track down the ruthless Serbian war criminal Zoran Lazarević; while working together, Jeff and Elena become good friends. Jeff is a dedicated cameraman, and is reluctant to go anywhere without his camera.[1]

[edit] Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

In November 2008, Jeff and Elena to track Lazarević to a war-torn Nepalese city, where they come across treasure-hunter Nathan "Nate" Drake, a former acquaintance of Elena's, and Nate's companion Chloe Frazer. Nate and Chloe are searching for a temple in the Nepalese city that is said to hold a clue to the location of the lost city of Shambhala, said to be home to the fabled Cintamani Stone. Lazarević is also on the trail of Shambhala, and with this mutual goal of finding Lazarević, the two duos unite in an effort to battle Lazarević's soldiers, who are roaming the city.[1]

Jeff and the group are able to fight their way through waves of Lazarević's soldiers and eventually come to the temple that Nate and Chloe have been searching for. As Nate and Chloe investigate the temple, Jeff and Elena are left outside on sentry duty. However, Jeff and Elena are soon ambushed by a group of Lazarević's soldiers, and Jeff is forced to take cover after he is wounded in the skirmish.[1]

When Nate and Chloe leave the temple, they are able to help Elena clear the area of any soldiers, but Jeff's wound leaves him unable to walk and Nate must carry him to safety. Jeff is forced to leave his camera behind, and the group continue on through the city, battling more of Lazarević's men as they do so. However, Jeff's wound slows the group down considerably, and it is not long before Lazarević and his partner Harry Flynn catch up with the group. Lazarević feigns compassion at Nate having carried Jeff so far through the city, before shooting and killing the cameraman.[1]
