Fling with Chris Halliwell (formerly)
- "But I don't want magic. My life was perfectly fine before all of this. I was happy. I had a nice job which I'm probably fired from now for not showing up in five days. I don't want this in my life."
- —Jessie to Chris.
Jessie was a young witch who came into her powers in her early twenties. Because she was scared as her powers manifested unexpectedly, she subconsciously called out for her Whitelighter, which turned out to be Chris Halliwell.
When Jessie's powers manifested, she initially freaked out as she was not aware of her magical heritage. Scared of her new powers, Jessie had neglected to take care of herself and had not slept in a few days. Meanwhile, her subconscious had been calling out to Chris Halliwell, her Whitelighter, without her even realizing it. However, Chris was reluctant to take on Whitelighter duties due to his family's relationship with The Elders and the fact that he never wanted to be a Whitelighter. This caused him to become a target to the Darklighter Jaden.
When Chris finally agreed to guide his charge, he tracked her to a local park, but was soon attacked by Jaden. She attacked an unaware Jessie but Chris protected her, though Jaden then managed to shoot Wyatt with a poisoned arrow. Chris then distracted the Darklighter and orbed to Jessie, telling her she was in danger and that she needed to trust him. A confused Jessie agreed and Chris orbed all of them to Magic School.
In Magic School, Jessie told Chris she had no idea about magic, but she remembered her father calling her grandmother a witch, which she thought was an insult. When Chris was distracted looking after Wyatt, a scared Jessie ran off into the school, putting herself in danger. She entered a classroom and was attacked by enhancted suits of armor, though she managed to defend herself until Chris arrived to help her. Jessie and Chris got into a discussion about accepting their respective destinies and bonded on the fact that neither of them really wanted a destiny forced onto them. Jessie then asked Chris to orb her home, so she could get a shower and a rest, to which Chris agreed.
While at her apartment, Chris waited as she took a shower. Jessie later appeared before Chris in her bathrobe and confronted him about their attraction to each other. Chris told her it was forbidden and was worried he would be taking advantage of her, but Jessie replied that he made her feel safe and that she needed that at the moment. She then kissed him and Chris went along with it despite his better judgement. The two then slept together and Jessie fell asleep afterward, being able to rest for the first time in days.
When Chris left the bedroom, Jaden appeared before Jessie and took her hostage with an arrow to her neck. The Darklighter then confronted Chris, but she underestimated Jessie, who signalled Chris and then used her power on Jaden. Chris then attacked Jaden, but she managed to shoot him with a poisoned arrow. When Jaden tried to finish the job, Jessie grabbed her head from behind her and used her power on short range, incinerating Jaden completely. Jessie was initially horrified, but Chris assured her that Jaden was not human, but pure evil instead. However, the poison then got to him and he lost consciousness.
Chris was orbed away and healed by the Elders and decided not to become a Whitelighter. He later visited Jessie again and gave her a power binding potion. Jessie admitted that she did not want to be a witch and later took the potion. She also informed Chris that she did not regret what happened between them and they spent another night together.
