Sgt. Jerry Martinez is the main antagonist in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories and is one of Victor Vance's commanding officers at the Fort Baxter Air Base. Martinez is one of the first characters introduced in the game, giving Victor the game's first missions.


Martinez does not take his position seriously and is generally a man of loose morals as can be seen when he is watching a Candy Suxxx animal porn movie. In the first mission of the game, Martinez orders Victor to get a shipment of drugs for him and hide them in the barracks. Later, he tells Victor, who is very uneasy about housing the drugs, that he will collect the marijuana once Victor picks up his "girlfriend" (a prostitute called Mary). When Victor arrives at Fort Baxter however, he is confronted by Drill Sergeant Peppah who informs him that they found the drugs and question him about the prostitute in his car. Victor is given a dishonorable discharge from the Army.

Martinez later betrays both Vic and Phil, his business partner, sending a group of thugs to see to their death which fails. He makes a deal with the Mendez brothers to oversee their shipment of cocaine arriving into Vice but it is ambushed and stolen by Victor and Lance. This prompts Jerry to join the federal protection program. In retaliation for making him turn states evidence, Jerry kidnaps Vic's girlfriend Louise, beats her savagely and leaves her with his men before Vic came to her rescue.

After Victor steals an army attack helicopter from the military base, Martinez decides to meet Vic on the top of Diego Mendez's penthouse. In a final showdown, Victor kills Martinez (along with Diego) and gets his revenge before he can even have time to confront Martinez on his issues with him.

Martinez is voiced by Felix Solis.
