Events of The New Colossus[edit | edit source]
The New Orleans Resistance stayed in The American Bank, battling against the Nazis until B.J. Blazkowicz entered and defeated the Nazi soldiers. After having a drink with Boone, B.J. was offered a robot dog by Paris Jack to distract the Nazis while the resistance went to Eva's Hammer. During B.J.'s 50th birthday party, Paris Jack is greeted by Fergus Reid or speaks to Probst Wyatt III in the dinner section of the boat. In Fergus' timeline, Paris Jack gives Fergus advice on talking to Maria, with that failing with his prosthetic arm touching her breast. In Wyatt's timeline, Paris Jack warned the private of his drug abuse, leading the latter to leave and go into the Shooting Range's secret room. After the birthday party, B.J. went to Paris Jack, asking to find Fergus with the former losing his prosthetic arm and latter disappearing. Paris Jack informs of what happened the previous night as B.J. goes to look for the two to start their assault on the Ausmerzer and assassinate Irene Engel.

- Jack's penchant as a Jazz musician, as well as his association with Paris, are possibly inspired by real-world musician Thelonious Monk, who spent significant portions of his career active in the Paris Jazz scene.
