Jack Bauer (born 18 February 1966 in Santa Monica, CA)—an American serviceman and later, a federal agent—was responsible for saving countless American citizens from potentially devastating terrorist attacks on many occasions throughout his career.
He took a leadership role in various covert and undercover missions, and served as both Special Agent in Charge and Director of Field Operations for CTU Los Angeles. His dedication to keeping U.S. citizens safe led him to make some deep personal sacrifices. Jack lost his job, his family, his friends, and, for a period of nearly two years, his freedom. He has shown his willingness to sacrifice his life on six different occasions, but each time his sacrifice ultimately proved to be unnecessary.
During the course of investigating threats made against the United States by Sangalan warlord Benjamin Juma (in association with Jonas Hodges), Jack was exposed to a bio-weapon manufactured by the private military company Starkwood that would kill him within several days. His daughter Kim underwent an experimental operation that helped save his life, and by Day 8 Jack was back to full fitness and enjoying spending time with his new family.
However, after being informed of an impending threat against President Omar Hassan, Jack was unwillingly thrust back into the world of CTU. This allowed him to reconcile with Renee Walker with whom he entered into a relationship. Before it could develop, however, she was killed and Jack went on a mission to make everyone responsible pay. After brutally murdering many of the Russian conspirators in the day's events, Jack was forced to leave his life behind once again to avoid being tracked down by U.S. and Russian operatives who wanted him dead.
