James "Jimmy" Pegorino is the 51-year old boss of the Alderney Pegorino crime family.

Jimmy Pegorino is voiced by Tony Patellis.


Pegorino first asks Niko Bellic to accompany him on a meeting with the Pavano crime family. Pegorino is suspicious of the Pavanos, and asks Bellic to watch over the meeting with a sniper rifle. A group of Pavanos attempt to murder Pegorino, but succeed only in killing his bodyguards, Big Pete and Marco. Bellic eventually escapes with Pegorino, killing many of the Pavanos in the process. In retaliation, Pegorino orders Bellic to attack a group of Pavanos at the Auto Eroticar dealership.

Later, Pegorino finds out that his bodyguard, Anthony Corrado, has become an informant. Pegorino calls Corrado, who suffers a heart attack while talking to him on the phone. An increasingly paranoid Pegorino then holds an arriving Niko Bellic at gunpoint, ordering Bellic to murder Corrado at the hospital.

Later in the storyline, Pegorino finds out that there is another "rat" in his organization. Believing that one of his capos, Ray Boccino, may be the culprit, he orders Bellic to murder him. Pegorino later asks Bellic to take part in a heroin deal with his old nemesis, Dimitri Rascalov. Pegorino's role in the ending of the storyline is dependent upon Bellic's choice:

  • If Bellic chooses to take part in the deal with Rascalov, Rascalov eventually betrays Pegorino, much as he betrayed Bellic and Mikhail Faustin, and steals the heroin. Rascalov sends an assassin to the wedding of Roman Bellic and Mallorie Bardas to eliminate Niko, but Roman is killed in the crossfire. Niko tracks Rascalov and Pegorino to an abandoned casino, where Rascalov shoots Pegorino point blank in the face.
  • If Bellic refuses to take part in the deal, he arrives at the docks in Broker and murders Rascalov. In retaliation, Pegorino attempts to murder Bellic, but instead shoots Bellic's girlfriend, Kate McReary, in the stomach at Roman Bellic and Mallorie Bardas' wedding. Niko later finds and pursues Pegorino, finally killing him on Happiness Island.
