Since Jeb is always first on the list of kerbonauts, he will by default be the first kerbonaut to board any vessel launched. In some cases, even after removing Jeb from the crew assignment of a vehicle in the VAB or SPH, if the Crew tab is left before launching, Jeb will again be aboard – sometimes the only kerbonaut aboard.
