The diner chef is a character who makes his first and only appearance in Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan when Jason Voorhees bursts through the door of the diner in pursuit of Rennie Wickham and Sean Robertson. The chef then steps away from his cooking to confront the mass murderer. However, Jason quickly disposes of him by throwing him against a mirror, and most likely killing him. 


  • The chef is portrayed by Ken Kirzinger, who would later play Jason in Freddy vs. Jason.
  • His (possible) death is the dull machete in Dead Meat’s kill count.
