Jefferson "Seaplane" McDonough is one of the five selectable playable character in Jumanji's video game form that appears in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.

He is the avatar of Alex Vreeke.


Seaplane is the pilot of the group of adventurers.


  • Pilot: He is an expert in piloting different types of aircrafts.
  • Margaritas: He is able to concoct margaritas.


  • Mosquitoes: Mosquito bites are instantly fatal to him.

Causes of DeathEdit

  • Shot-down: At the beginning of his life in Jumanji, he commandeered a plane to fly past the gorge but his plane was shot-down by fighter jets piloted by Oranguatans.
  • Shot-down: After commandeering the Transportation Shed's Hot-Air Balloon, he crashed it and stayed away from the shed since.
  • Mosquito bite: After piloting the group out of the gorge, he was finally bitten by a Mosquito and faced permanent death, until Shelly (Bethany) voluntarily gave him the last of his spare lives through CPR.


  • Originally Tom Holland was cast as Seaplane McDonough, but had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so Nick Jonas was cast in his place.
  • His symbol on the closing credits next to his actor's credits fittingly is the evacuation chopper.
