21, mechanic, childhood friend of Gerald and Matt. Status: alive, barely.
After dropping out of high school, Joe joined the family business and worked as a mechanic for several years. He was never very good, and was always more interested in working out.
In the midst of the outbreak, Joe lost both his legs to a horde of zombies. Kevin the robot was able to construct a pair of makeshift bionic legs, leaving Joe with only one organic limb. While most people wouldn't survive such injuries, it is likely that Joe's boundless rage kept him alive.
