You meet Jackie very early on into Cyberpunk 2077, no matter which lifepath you choose, and he quickly becomes your best friend.
Those who have progressed into Cyberpunk 2077 a decent amount, however, will know that tragedy befalls him. After a job takes an unexpected turn he is injured, and unfortunately dies. It’s unfortunate, though given the game’s myriad of choices which do have an impact on how it plays out, some may wonder if they can save Jackie.
The bad news is that Jackie can’t be saved. While many aspects of Cyberpunk 2077‘s story can be changed, the death of Jackie is set in stone. No matter what you do before things go wrong, you can’t help him. What you can do though, is remember him. A message from Jackie’s mum will eventually make its way to you via your phone, and if you call her you can attend his funeral if you wish.
