|Still, In Summerlyn|
Jesse is a minor character and survivor in The Last Ones.
Nothing is known about Jesse's life before the outbreak other than that he presumably spent many years of his life climbing trees and other high structures as he is shown to be extremely gifted at doing so.
Little is known about Jesse's story after the apocalypse other than that eventually, he formed a group alongside Big Pete, Cassie, Joel and several others. The unnamed survivors presumably lost their lives, leaving Jesse with just three other survivors to live alongside with. They eventually set up a camp on a beach in Summerlyn City.
Jesse makes his first appearance jumping down from a palm tree, where he was keeping watch, and threatening a stranger called Eli Loche with a knife after he walked into their camp. Eli attempts to calm the group down and tells them he has a safe base and that he approached them to try and see if they wanted to join his group. Big Pete and Jesse eventually back off and after more persuasion they agree to accompany Eli to check the place out. Jesse, however, remains wary.
Soon after, the group close in on the swimming center base. Big Pete and the others eventually realise that Jesse has vanished. Jesse is then seen climbing a tree and making his way into the base alone, where he infiltrates the center and checks out Eli's people. He makes his way downstairs where he regroups with Eli and his friends. Cassie berates him for being sneaky, but Eli doesn't appear to be cross. He is instead seemingly impressed by his skills and asks for Jesse's help in tracking down Alexis and Victoria, whom he describes as friends. Jesse agrees to carry out the favour.
Jesse eventually tracks down the women and returns to the base. Big Pete, Cassie and Joel come over to welcome Jesse back. He then tells Eli that he found Alexis and Victoria and that the two are now living in a housing complex. Jesse becomes suspicious that Eli means the women harm, so he begs his friends to leave with him as Eli cannot be trusted. When they refuse, Eli turns around and picks up his gun, but when he turns back around, he finds Jesse to be absent. He is then seen sprinting from the compound and Big Pete remarks that he'll never be caught. Eli watches as Jesse flees.
A day or two after, Jesse leaps down from a tree in the woods close to Summerlyn City and saves Aimi Kato when a zombie grabs her and pulls her to the ground. She thanks him and asks who he is, but he doesn't tell her. He advises her to leave the woods as it's not safe. Aimi informs him that in spite of what just happened, she can actually handle the zombies. Jesse tells her the zombies aren't the threat he's referring to. Just then, Aimi's brother Shiro approaches to find his sister. When Aimi turns back to face Jesse, he is gone.
What happened to Jesse after he disappeared is unknown.
