Jack Mort is a major antagonist in The Drawing of Three (the second book in the Dark Tower series) whose actions have had a great impact throughout the series.
Mort is a psychopathic killer who makes his first and only appearance in The Drawing of the Three. He derives sexual satisfaction from dropping bricks onto people, whom he calls "Do-Bees", from high altitudes, a process he calls "depth charging", and pushing them in front of oncoming traffic.
He has a separate life as an accountant in a large firm. He plans his actions out beforehand by thinking about what a "Do Bee" would do.
He is responsible for dropping the brick on five year old Odetta's head which caused her to split into two personalities. He is also responsible for pushing Odetta in front of the train that severed her legs. Jack also pushed Jake in front of the Cadillac vehicle which killed him.
When Roland enters his mind through The Pusher door and takes over his body, he forces Mort to buy bullets for his guns and antibiotics. He proceeds to take him to the subway station while being pursued by the police. Roland kills Mort by making him thow himself beneath the train - the same one that took Odetta's legs.
