Jets have proven to be an important observable of heavy-ion collisions at the LHC; recent analysis has also made jets an important probe at RHIC energies as well. Unlike the spectrum of single hadrons, the spectrum of jets is highly sensitive to $\hat{q}_{\perp}$, as well as being sensitive to partonic energy loss and radiative processes. We use MARTINI, an event generator, to study how finite-temperature processes at leading order affect single jet, dijet, and photon-jet observables. Finally, finite-temperature effects on the momenta of heavy quarks are simulated and compared with data for open heavy flavor mesons.
