Kalam Jameson is Sidney McCauley 's second as his radio partner and the father of Malachi Jameson. He is bitten in an altercation with shamblers on a food scavenge and his resulting suicide ignites a moral crisis in the group, forcing Allie and Sidney to both disagree publicly and reach a compromise.
Before Dead DayEdit
Jameson was an independent repairman, harvesting parts for cars from the junkyard where he worked to fix clients' cars. He and Kemper pool their skills to build and draft plans for the solar generators, and he teaches Allie, Sidney, Russ, Kemper, and Kendall how to operate many difficult powertools, like a blowtorch, soldering iron, and bandsaw.
