Jerec supported methods for dealing with the resurgent Mandalorian radicals known as the Death Watch. It would be the Death Watch who was responsible for Jerec's death, when he fell victim to a bombing perpetrated by the Death Watch while on Kalevala. A holorecording of a speech that he made supporting Duchess Kryze was altered by an individual within the Galactic Republic's government, and the faked testimonial was shown to the Galactic Senate with the intent of manipulating the Senate to vote on sending Republic troops to occupy Mandalore. The true recording, in which Jerec reveals that Republic assistance would only throw public support to Death Watch, was eventually uncovered by an agent of the Republic's Ministry of Intelligence and broadcast before the Senate. Upon seeing the truth, the senators rescinded their votes in favor of Republic occupation of Mandalore, allowing the Mandalorian homeworld to remain neutral in the Clone Wars.
