Day 1 Edit
Shortly after 3am, Jessie Hampton heard a shooting at 18166 San Fernando Road and reported it. She got out of her vehicle and began to chase after the assailant, when another armed men appeared. The man identified himself as Jack Bauer with CTU Los Angeles. Hampton checked his ID and told him she never heard of the Counter Terrorist Unit.
The two of them pursued Greg Penticoff and Hampton turned off her radio. They were forced to take cover from Penticoff when Bauer's cell phone began to ring. When a janitor almost got caught in the crossfire, Hampton spoke Spanish to him and told him to wait until she got back. Hampton was eventually taken hostage by Penticoff and Jack tried to rescue her, but she was killed.
