First Lieutenant Jake Chapman was a UNSC Marine officer stationed on the planet Reach in 2552.[1]


During the Fall of Reach, Chapman shared command of Charlie Company with First Lieutenant Buckman, and commanded Gamma 1, under the call sign "Gamma 1 Actual." Although he was assumed killed along with the majority of Charlie Company and a large number of Covenant troops due to him requesting air support and apparently causing a large friendly fire incident by Frederic-104 and the remainder of Red Team, he and most of his men did survive.

As a result of Beta Red staying behind to hold off the Covenant and presumably killed when UNSC Majestic hit the area with MAC rounds, he along with Buckman were able to evacuate all but four of their surviving men who later met Red Team.
