"Jack", formerly known as Timothy Lawrence, is a look-alike body double of Handsome Jack. Representing the Doppelganger class, "Jack" is the fifth playable character in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, first revealed at PAX Prime 2014. Jack was added as post-release downloadable content released on November 11, 2014 for $9.99 USD/$14.40 AUS. His skill summons two Digi-Jacks to fight for him.
According to ECHO logs in Jack's Office and as part of "Jack"'s ECHO logs granted as a personal item at the start of the game, Jack used to go by the name Timothy Lawrence until he was elected to undergo the major reconstructive surgery performed by Dr. Autohn. Timothy's reason for undergoing the surgery is to pay off his student loans.
Jack's action skill, "Expendable Assets", summons two Digi-Jacks to fight for him, who constantly lose health and are continuously resurrected for its duration. They battle using wrist-mounted lasers, punch and kick enemies who come too close, and can serve as a distraction against foes. The Digi-Jacks can be outfitted with modifications via skills, such as a shotgun laser or even being spawned as Badasses.
Base duration for the skill is 40 seconds, and base cooldown is 40 seconds.
His three skill trees consist of "Hero of this Story", "Greater Good", and "Free Enterprise".
"Hero of this Story" focuses primarily on improving the general combat ability/resistance of Jack and his clones, along with promoting a grenade-heavy playstle.
"Greater Good" is a "selfish" tree which focuses on avoiding damage by letting Jack's Digi-Jacks or teammates take damage, and additionally give his Digi-Jacks several area-of-effect abilities upon spawning.
Finally, the "Free Enterprise" tree focuses on improving gun effectiveness through gimmicks ranging from weapon-swapping effects to manufacturer loyalty effects.

- When created as a new character, Jack will usually spawn with a Hyperion pistol and SMG, both using only Hyperion components, resulting in a Vision and Transmurdera.
- "Jack" suffers from acrophobia, better known as an abnormal fear of heights.
- Jack is legally forbidden to mention his real name after his surgical change, as when asked by Roland, he only says it rhymes with "Jimothy".
