We report optical spectroscopy (range 370-910 nm) of ASASSN-16jc discovered by the All-Sky Automated Survey for Supernovae (ASAS-SN; Shappee et al. 2014, ApJ, 788, 48) using the du Pont 2.5-m telescope (+ WFCCD) at Las Campanas Observatory on Aug. 24 2016 UT. We performed a cross-correlation with a library of supernova spectra using the "Supernova Identification" code (SNID; Blondin and Tonry 2007, Ap.J. 666, 1024). The details of the classifications are as follows:

Name             Disc. ATel     Spec. Type    Phase        Redshift     
ASASSN-16jc      ATel #9393     Ia            -1.2 (5.0)   0.010914 (host/NED)                      

We note that the majority of the best match templates from SNID are -5 days or younger.
