Totally tubular! Well, I think I speak for everyone when I say, we all saw this coming!

—"Jasper Dies at the End"

Jasper is a former Camp Campbell camper. He makes his unofficial debut in "Camp Campbell Wants YOU!" before his main series debut in "Journey to Spooky Island". He is hinted, later confirmed, to be a ghost stranded on Spooky Island, unable to move on.

Appearance

Jasper's appearance partially consists of apparel popular in the 90's: He wears a yellow Camp Campbell shirt over a purple flannel long-sleeved shirt, blue shorts with a sky-blue triangle pattern and lavender LA Gear light up shoes with orchid colored laces. He also has olive colored hair, dark eyebrows, and light blue eyes.

Personality

Jasper is soft-spoken, rather nervous and speaks in outdated lingo. He seems like a follower and when he met Max, Nikki, and Neil, tried to be part of their "gang". According to David's story, he seems to enjoy the camp to a great extent and was proclaimed as the best camper of the Order of the Sparrows and has a generally upbeat and happy attitude. However, his opinion on the camp changes near the end of the episode.

He appears to enjoy company from other campers, especially given that the other visitors to the island are Quartermaster and his friends wanting to do perverse acts. In the special NIGHT OF THE LIVING ILL, it is revealed that Jasper is unable to leave Spooky Island and is cursed to haunt the realm of the living until his corporeal body is able to find peace. In "Dial M for Jasper", the true circumstances of his death are finally shown and elaborated on.
