Jeepers Creepers 2

Dante was riding back home to Bannon County after his high school basketball team won the state championship. Upon hearing an update on the radio from the police excavating the Creeper's House of Pain, Dante sat beside Scott Braddock, asking him if he believed it. Scotty shot back a sarcastic "No, they're making it up."

Dante was then mentioned by Jake Spencer to Izzy Bohen while the two were peeing outside. Jake indicated that the team believed Izzy was gay and that he wrote a lot about Dante due to having a crush on him. This was never confirmed though.

When the Creeper began selecting which students it wanted to eat, Dante was one of the ones it seemed to like.

After the Creeper's head was injured on the bus, it flew into the air and then landed on the bus, breaking the windows and putting a hole in the roof. One of its wings draped through the hole, separating the bus from front to back. The students in the back tried to move toward the front, each moving the wing out of the way. One of the students remarked it was like a shower curtain. When Dante moved under it, he grabbed the wing and amused, commented it was more like toilet paper. The wing suddenly grabbed Dante and the Creeper ripped his head off. When the wing receded, Dante's headless body flailed for several moments, horrifying the other students. Finally, it collapsed. The Creeper replaced its own head with Dante's head which then changed to look like the Creeper's own head.

Immediately after Dante is ensnared in the Creeper's wings, we see only his feet and sneakers remain free to struggle hopelessly as the creature lifts Dante off the ground.

Dante dying in the hands of the creeper. His head can be seen as eaten by the creepers and the body still moved after it.
