Sex & Moral Standards:
Sexually active within context of a relationship. J.D. had broken off their relationship soon after their arrival in Hawaii.
Later after one year with The Training Center she decided to go back home to California. She met someone else thought
that she was in love before breaking off the relationship. But not before discovering that she was pregnant.
Personal Premise: Work hard to go after your dreams. That work doesn't seem like work at all if you love
what you are doing.
Ambition: In the beginning to become a stuntwoman. After given the chance to
become a Lifeguard, it was what she wanted making a new life for herself. She then wanted to train for a Maui race
in Hawaii. After J.D. persuaded her to move to Hawaii to work for Mitch, things changed between them. She wanted the life
of The Training Center. But after J.D. broke off the relationship, she was heartbroken and later went back home.
Frustrations & Chief Disappointments: Her leaving Hawaii and
The Training Center. After returning home she had met another guy that she thought she was in love with. After realizing
that she wasn't in love with him, she broke off the relationship. It was too late. She was pregnant.
Giving J.D. an unreasonable ultimatum that she wanted him back and said that the
only way for them to get back together was a choice of "her or The Center." J.D. later made his decision
and chose "The Center."
She did get letters from J.D. as they had decided to remain friends. He wrote to
inform her that he and Kekoa were engaged. She tried for one last try at J.D., knowing that he was now attached. She tried
to pass the baby off as his. This caused friction between J.D. and Kekoa. She had felt bad about everything after J.D. resisted
her advances. She finally went to Kekoa to confess.
Mitch's death. She couldn't believe that he was gone. He was the one besides Alex
who stood by her. She loved Mitch and he meant a lot to her. Like a father figure. She was devastated.
After the move to Hawaii, J.D. lost interest in her, causing the couple to break
up. Just before he persuaded Jessie into coming to Hawaii for Mitch's Training Center, he talked about their getting
married. She was excited about that. She tried to examined what happened between them, but J.D. had just lost interest
when he got a glance at the Hawaiian girls. He didn't seem interested in communicating with her anymore. His eyes still
wandered over to those island girls. Leaving the island after a year with The Training Center.
Had trouble earlier as a teen concerning her involvement with an old boyfriend. He
stole a car at a dealer with her along for the ride and both were caught and arrested! She got off on probation since
she was a minor and it was a first offense. Her boyfriend, however went to work camp prison. He never mended his ways. Prisoners
were sent to clean up the beach when he saw her on duty in training. He and another inmate escaped by feigning illness. He
hid in Jessie's tower to her surprise, asking for her help. Not wanting to risk the chance given to her by Mitch and
Alex, she had to turn him in to authorities.
