"It was supposed to be a surprise party for your birthday. Everybody's waiting for us to show up. I got this great cabin and everything."
"No way!"
"Nevermind, the whole thing's ruined... happy birthday.
―Jane and Michael[src]

Jane McDowell was a character in the film Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood. Jane was the girlfriend of Michael Rogers.

She is the 54th victim of Jason Voorhees.


Planning on surprising her boyfriend Michael for his birthday Jane and several of her and Michael's friends get a hold of a cabin near Crystal Lake to party. While on route to the cabin (Jane having told Michael they were just going camping) a complication arises when Michael's car breaks down, forcing him and Jane to abandon it and walk. When Michael decides they should simply camp out a small distance away from the car Jane spoils the surprise party, telling Michael all about the cabin and how everyone is waiting for them, leaving Michael ecstatic.[1]


Jane's death at the hands of Jason Voorhees

Trudging onward to the cabin Jane is left alone with the luggage when Michael heads off into the woods to urinate. Seconds after telling Michael to hurry up Jane is killed by Jason Voorhees, who muffles her screams, slams her against a tree and pins her to it through the throat with one of her and Michael's tent spikes. After Michael finds his girlfriend's body, Jason rips the tent spike out of the tree and Jane's throat, causing her body to slide down the tree.
