Jesse is a student. He attends Greenwich High School with Vanessa and Ross Doyle. He is a talented actor, but he is stuck up, arrogant and rude. During the events of the story his school was performing the Shakespearean play Macbeth. He auditioned for and got the lead role of Macbeth.

One day, he and the director Kim went over to meet with Ross and Vanessa at the coffee shop. Here he overheard Vanessa giving Ross tips on how to not be so nervous when performing. Just as she was rehearsing her scene where Lady Macbeth thinks she is seeing a spot of blood on her hand, he spilled a drop of ketchup on her and startled her. He tried to get her relax and lighten up, saying that Macbeth is allowed to kid with Lady Macbeth. She was annoyed and not amused. So she reminded him that he wasn't allowed to do so, outside of the play. Then later on at the stage, he teased Ross about being nervous and having stage fright.
