That's interesting, I never actually figured out what J.J stood for myself. Jessica Jane does sound cool, it's a shame without the evidence, we'll never know what J.J actually stood for?

On a side note, I have always wished that the song that J.J was playing on her guitar was available to buy somewhere on a soundtrack or a single. That would be awesome! :)

According to Stan Meissner who wrote J.J's Blues and co-wrote Broken Dream. No completed versions of the track were ever made so what's on the film is what's recorded. Though disputing this there is a longer instrumental version of Broken Dream that can be heard playing in the club on Forever Knight Season 1 Episode 1 (1992). So it's most likely the master tapes were actually lost.

Thanks for the info, I'll definitely check out the Forever Knight episode, if for anything just to hear that track alone. It is a shame that some of the cool stuff from movies get lost forever. I think I'm going to watch Friday the 13th part 8 tonight, all of todays conversations have got me wanting to watch J.J shred on her guitar.

Pardon the slight overlap as I merge two threads.

Update so far:

I emailed Saffron's sister Camille Henderson a while back as there is no way to contact Saffron directly as her official site was taken down due to no longer paying the hosting, and her Twitter has been abandoned for about a year now. Camille said she forwarded my question to her but I don't think i'm going to hear anything back. I first emailed her on March 27 and the last time I spoke to her was on April 13 to check if Saffron received the forwarding where she basically said "Saffron's super busy right now and i'll forward this email to follow up". If she was going to respond she would have done it by now I feel, no one's that busy. It would have been nice if she could have just politely replied with a no but whatever hey.

Plus it's known that Saffron has no love for the franchise or the character at all. She hasn't appeared in any of the documentaries or attended any of the conventions (Though she still attends Anime conventions). Still you'd think she'd like being a playable character in a game. She has done voice work in video games before such as Saints Row 1 and 2, The Sopranos: Road To Respect, The Punisher etc. on PS2. 

The only time I could find her ever mentioning it in an interview was one from 1996 in Rumic World where she stated: ‘I have a tendency to get killed at the beginning of films [LAUGHS], and it happened again! There was a "Jason"- I'm not gonna say which Friday the 13th, 'cause I really don't want anyone to know- but I was a rock guitar player, and Jason took my guitar from me and I got killed with a guitar in the head. Right at the beginning of the film! [CHOCKED SOB] It just keeps happening!’ (the "again" referring to her being killed in the first 5 minutes of The Fly II as well).

That underlined part clearly shows how she feels about the film though it was a very old interview almost as old as me so she may have warmed to the film a bit more now. She did respond to someone on Twitter (back when her profile still had activity) about it but it was mainly talking about her hair and how it doesn't normally have that much volume. Maybe she'll email back saying she's down for lending her likeness and voice for the game but it's not looking promising right now. But I have done all I possibly can to try and make it happen so far.

@J.J.

It definitely seems like you've done everything you can to get in touch with Saffron, it's a shame she didn't reply back to your question that was passed onto her through her sister. The only other way that she could be asked about being in the game was if the games developer's could somehow reach out to her, or maybe get lucky enough to meet her at a convention and ask her in person. 

I wonder why she never wanted to do any of the Friday the 13th documentries? I would have loved to see her in an interview, maybe be reprised with the guitar she had in the film, if she doesn't already have it herself. There were plenty of other actresses in the His Name Was Jason documentry. Me personally I'd be stoked to have been in a Friday the 13th film, and be killed by Jason, but that's just me.

Yeah i'm just gonna leave it now, if she replies then great if not then that's fine nothing more I can do. I think doing anything further would be entering stalker territory. It's pretty simple, she hates the role and is clearly embarrassed about it. She's done so much stuff since and is probably annoyed when people bring it up. Let's go back to  I'm not gonna say which Friday the 13th, 'cause I really don't want anyone to know It's clear how she feels about it. Plus she's a mom and mainly does children's cartoons and benefit concerts and stuff. It's probably safe to say she's moved on from Friday the 13th and wants nothing to do with it despite how loved her character is. Tbh it seems she's putting acting behind her altogether now. Her last credit on IMDb was in 2014 and IMDb normally has everything on it. Her official website was taken down and she's abandoned her Twitter. I was starting to think she may have died until her sister said she'd pass my email on.

What about just the guitar as an alternate weapon for Part 8 Jason?

J.J's guitar as an alternate weapon for Jason would be pretty cool. I'd still like them to try get J.J herself added into the game as well. :)
