Ray Mercer, or Jenson as he was referred to, was an associate of Ira Gaines during Day 1.

Before Day 1[]

Sometime before Day 1 he was arrested by the Burbank Police Department, under the name "Ray Mercer". He had his mugshot taken during his arrest.

Day 1[]

Paulson shows Mercer's mugshot

Mercer worked as a guard at Gaines's compound, keeping watch over Teri and Kim Bauer. Teri thought she overheard another guard calling him by the name "Jenson". Later, after the two women had been rescued from the compound, Ted Paulson debriefed them by showing photos of Gaines associates. Teri relayed the potential name, "Jenson", to Paulson. ("Day 1: 3:00pm-4:00pm")

Background information and notes[]

  • Because he was not one of the reported casualties at the compound and was not killed by Alexis Drazen during the next hour, he survived the day. However it is unknown whether he was arrested by Bundy's CTU team, or escaped.
  • The placard he is holding, as well as the file name on Paulson's computer, give his name as "Ray Mercer". It is unknown whether Teri was mistaken when she heard someone call him "Jenson", whether it was a temporary alias, or whether he changed his name since his arrest.
