Look, we got here because we wanted to. We're in a cage because we were mistaken for savages. And if you two don't SHUT UP, I WILL EAT YOU!!!

Jessica "Jessie" Prescott is the main protagonist of Jessie.

Jessie is portrayed by Debby Ryan, who also portrays Bailey Pickett in The Suite Life on Deck and The Suite Life Movie.


She is an idealistic and resourceful girl from the military base of Fort Hood, Texas. As a 2010 high school graduate rebelling against her strict father Jessie moved to New York City to realize her dreams of stardom, but with an unexpected turn of events ends up becoming a nanny to the four Ross children. Even though it is proven that Jessie is sometimes annoyed with the Ross kids, she also still loves them despite their antics.


In the episode "Cattle Calls and Scary Walls" and "Teacher's Pest" her last name is revealed to be Prescott. She mentions her father in numerous episodes. In the episode "Make New Friends But Hide The Old", she reveals that she is an only child. Jessie also has a complicated love life, as seen prominently in "Break-Up and Shape-Up", when one of Jessie's old boyfriends, Ted, is in New York City, and she starts to have romantic feelings for him again, making Tony jealous in the process, while Jessie is also jealous of Tony training a pretty old friend of his, Vic, in a doorman - or "doorwoman" position. At the end of the episode, Jessie and Tony break up mutually, believing the spark is gone in their relationship. They got back together in the end of season 4. Jessie finally got her big break in acting in series finale, where she gets to star on a tv series where she plays a nanny by day and super hero by night.
