"Senator Jubben. STATUS: Terminated."
―ASN-121's log[src]

Jubben was an individual who worked as a senator.[2] Prior to the plot to assassinate Galactic Republic Senator Padmé Amidala in 22 BBY,[1] Jubben was killed by ASN-121, a custom assassin droid owned by the bounty hunter Zam Wesell.[2] Jubben was one of many senators murdered in the years prior to the Clone Wars.[3] After ASN-121 was shot by Wesell during the plot to kill Amidala, several fragments of the droid were uncovered[2] in one of the alleyways[3] of the undercity on the planet Coruscant. When sliced, the droid's status logs revealed Wesell's involvement in Jubben's death, as well as in several previously unsolved assassinations.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

Senator Jubben was first mentioned in The New Essential Guide to Droids, a 2006 reference book by Daniel Wallace.[2]
