Jacob Skinner is a Dead Rising 2 survivor. He is a professional poker player found in the Atlantica Casino during the unannounced mission High Rollers. He reappears in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record with the same role.
In High Rollers, Chuck Greene comes across Jacob, Jessica Howe, and Nevada Slim standing around a poker table in the Atlantica Casino. When he tries to get the three survivors to follow him to the Safe House, they refuse and tell Chuck that they will only follow him if he beats all three of them at poker. They tell him to buy in at the table for $100,000.
Once Chuck defeats the players, they will agree to follow him to the Safe House.
