Jerry the Jaywalker (aka Road Kill Man) appears in the typing pool area of Neitherworld Social Services.

History[]

He appears as the messenger in the Neitherworld and is seen when the Maitland's go to see Juno.

Physical Description[]

Road Kill Man is a man who got run over, and now resembles a raccoon pancake you see on the side of the road. It's not direct about his death, however, he wears a suit with heavy tire tracks across the front. Judging from how his entire body is flattened, it seems that he may have been run over by more than one vehicle.

Personality[]

He (like the receptionist, Miss Argentina) probably committed suicide- jumping in front of a truck or car or any vehicle of some kind. Although there's not much known about him. He seems to have accepted his fate, to the extent that he'll even joke about it.

Trivia[]

  • He was sometimes called "Road Accident Victim" although the term was incorrect, seeing as he is working alongside Miss Argentina in the afterlife civil service. His cause of death been has accidental, he would not have been assigned to the civil service which is the final fate of those who committed suicide in the real world.
  • In a promotional booklet and sticker set, his name is given as Jerry the Jaywalker.
  • Actor Carmen Filipi was also in Pee-Wee's Big Adventure as the Train Hobo, The Wedding Singer, Halloween 4 and Wayne's World.
