Expeditionary Force by Craig Alanson Wiki

Jesse "Cornpone" Colter is a Staff Sergeant with the Mavericks.

He was a U.S. Army Sergeant serving with UNEF on Paradise. Prior to joining UNEF, he deployed to Nigeria with Joseph Bishop and Dave Czajka, his fellow Fire Team soldiers with the 10th Mountain Infantry Division.

He got his nickname "Cornpone" from his fire team because he spoke with a Southern U.S. drawl.

He was in Joe's Old Fire Team along with Czajka. Colter was best friends with Czajka.

On Paradise, he was in, then Sergeant, Bishop's Old Fire Team along with Czajka.

Colter and Czajka tended a farm together in the Lemuria Province on Paradise after the Ruhar re-took Gehtanu (Paradise/Pradassis) from the Kristang. They obtained the ugliest couch anyone had ever seen, but they loved it.

After Joe "disappeared" when the Ruhar re-took Gehtanu (Paradise/Pradassis) from the Kristang, Colter, Emily Perkins, Czajka and Shauna Jarrett were rounded up by the Ruhar for interrogation because of their association with Joe and to see if they knew what had happened to him.

Along with Perkins, Czajka and Jarrett, Colter is recruited by the Merry Band of Pirates posing as a group of Ruhar that Perkins calls Emby (Mysterious Benefactor) to activate Giant TerraWatt MASER Projectors under the surface of Paradise.

Colter, as with the rest of the human Mavericks, has come to care about Nert Dandurff, taking him under his wing and acting like a big brother to him.

Colter and Jarrett are in a serious romantic relationship.
