"Daryl, remember what we learned, head trauma, attack the BRAIN. The only thing we know that kills 'em."
—Jess' advice to Daryl Dixon about walkers[src]

Jess Collins is an original character in The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct. He is the half-brother of Will Dixon and half-uncle to Merle and Daryl Dixon.

Pre-Apocalypse

Cabot Ridge

Jess was the only one that actually ever shown a little attention to Daryl, he even bought Daryl a crossbow for his birthday but he throws away the attention as he is still trying to earn his father's respect. He is Will Dixon's half-brother, meaning he is Daryl's and Merle's half-uncle. It is revealed that Jess was a handyman before the apocalypse, and is depicted as having a tough personality. He performed a variety of odd jobs and services, some illicit, for his older half-brother Will Dixon. Tough and loyal to his family, Jess is a good fighter and a seasoned hunter. He was also a war veteran and has up to 4 to 5 years of heavy aircraft weaponry experience. After retiring from the war he got a job as a handyman in a local town. He also likes to still pursue his hobby of hunting and takes Daryl and Merle out hunting with him.

Post-Apocalypse

Searching For Merle

After the death of Daryl's father, Will Dixon, Jess remains with Daryl. Jess is seen with Daryl Dixon in his boarded-up cabin in the woods. Jess complains that walkers are surrounding the house and informs Daryl they had to leave. Jess sends Daryl for three cans of gas. Daryl returns to Jess honking the horn, as he enters Jess' pick-up truck and they drive off. Later, while he and Daryl are searching for a new vehicle, he reanimates. Daryl later discovers him as a walker near the vehicle they are taking. At first, he mistakenly believes that he is alive, but soon discovers the contrary, killing him.
