Captain Richard Jenko was the first captain of the 21 Jump Street Chapel Program. He was hit and killed by a drunk driver in the sixth episode of season 1, The Worst Night of Your Life.
Notes and Trivia
- In 21 Jump Street (episode), Jenko wears a leather jacket with The Doors' lead singer Jim Morrison imprinted on the back.
- Jenko claims to have been a Deadhead since Woodstock.
- Its implied that Greg Jenko from the later 21 Jump Street movies is Captain Jenko's son. Makes sense as the beginning of the movie shows Greg as 18 in 2005, meaning he was born in 1987, the year the show started.
