Ted Reyerson was a member of Jesse Custer's congregation.
After being criticized over and over by his mother, Ted constantly asked Jesse Custer what he should do about it. Jesse always told him to be brave, honest and open his heart, only for Ted to ignore the advice and relay his problems to him the next day. Eventually, Ted took his advice (unknowingly influenced by the power of Genesis), and traveled to visit his mother. He poured out his issues to her, telling her that as her only son, he felt that he deserved more respect from her. He then followed Jesse's advice too literally by cutting his chest open and showing his mother his heart before falling over, dead.
