Jerry Kapowitz is a homeless Veteran in Liberty City in Grand Theft Auto IV. During the mission Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend, the diamonds everyone were after were thrown onto a passing truck. Kapowitz had been living near the Liberty City dump and surviving off of things he salvaged from there when he stumbled upon the diamonds valued at over $2 million. Kapowitz plans to take his wealth down to Vice City where he will start a gun shop and liquor store. His ownership of the diamonds was immediately contested by over 100 people. Mayor Ochoa decided that it would be impossible to verify the claims so allowed Kapowitz to keep all of the proceeds from the diamonds' sale.
