Here - a souvenir for you. It's Benny's lighter. Shove it up his ass when you catch up with him.

Jessup is a Great Khans leader holed-up in Boulder City in 2281.


When encountered in Boulder City, Jessup is holding 2 NCR troopers, privates Ackerman and Gilbert, hostage. He also accompanied Benny and dug the Courier's grave before they were shot. He argued, albeit briefly, with Benny over the burial of Chance, whom he had watched out for since the onset of Benny's mission. Jessup was able to easily intimidate Benny into allowing the burial, as the other Khans backed his threat.

During many portions of All Roads, he exhibits fierce loyalty to the Khans and, more personally, to Chance, watching over the troubled man as if he were a brother or son. It is no surprise that later in Boulder City he holds sway over them as a leader figure following the death of McMurphy.

  • Boulder City Showdown: Jessup can either be convinced to let the captives go with a Speech check of 45, killed, or informed that all the NCR troopers in the area are dead.
  • They Went That-a-Way: Jessup, upon the Courier saying they're going to get Benny on the New Vegas Strip, will give the player character Benny's lighter, advising them to "shove it up his ass when you catch up to him."



If allowed to leave Boulder City, Jessup will later be found in Red Rock Canyon. He can still be interacted with, but has no additional dialogue regarding Benny's fate and reputation with the Great Khans.

Notable quotesEdit


Jessup appears in Fallout: New Vegas and All Roads.


  • pcIcon pc ps3Icon ps3 xbox360Icon xbox360 If one helps Jessup get out of Boulder City without killing anyone (through the Speech check) he will say he has a long walk ahead of him, if one meets him at the Great Khan settlement in Red Rock Canyon, he will still say he has a long walk ahead of him.[verified]
  • pcIcon pc xbox360Icon xbox360 If one sneaks into the Boulder City Ruins (through a Sneak check), Jessup will be found dead, but the Khans with him will still be alive.[verified]
  • pcIcon pc Jessup and his crew will be hostile towards the Courier when they kill the NCR hostages, even though they killed all the NCR for him to escape during Boulder City Showdown. This will also occur even when they aren't in the same area, meaning only Jessup and his crew will be hostile at Red Rock Canyon.[verified]
