He is the leader of the underground operation in Florida. He was called 'an asshole' by Fisher, he was also regarded as 'a sweetheart' next to his successor, Captain Rhodes. By the beginning of the film, Cooper had died from an unknown cause and was subsequently used in Dr. Logan's experiments to understand the zombies' physiology. The men are unaware of this, despite burying what they thought was his body when it was actually one of Logan's previous specimens

The majority of Cooper's head is stripped away leaving only the brain and spinal column, and Logan wires the core of the brain up to a machine to prove that the corpse still has motor function, He is discovered by Sarah while searching for Logan. Although she doesn't realize it is him, Dr. Logan presents to Sarah that zombies don't need most of their function using Cooper's corpse. While arguing with Logan she discovers Cooper's jacket, she stares at his corpse shocked. Logan calmly claims that this was necessary since he provided valuable information, and asserts that the corpse can't be recognized.
