Jessica "Jess" Fisher is Karen Fisher's middle child and youngest daughter.


Jess is full of contradictions; on the one hand involving herself in an adult relationship with a man who doesn't know she's a schoolgirl and on the other playing games to be popular and lying to her parents to keep their approval. Cool, sarky and confident nature ensured her popularity at school and made sure she was never short of admirers. She is also aware of how popular and pretty she is. Jess and Karen have a feisty relationship; Jess feels like she can never live up to Karen's lost daughter Bex.

She has a complex home life, simultaneously resenting, whilst really missing her older sister Bex who used to make their family life bearable also Vicki doesn't approve of Jess's promiscuity, and isn't afraid to say so. Jess also finds herself at the pinnacle of a love triangle, as both Jonah Kirby and Finn Sharkey fight over her. Jonah wants Jess to work out who she really is and their love affair plays out at the heart of Waterloo Road.

Jess previously bedded Chris - a man ten years her senior and led on Finn who was younger than her, but in Series 7 it sees Jess finally fall into a relationship with a boy her own age, but it's not going to be plain sailing - Aiden Scotcher has a wondering eye and although he's mad about Jess, he also has a thing for her best friend Vicki.
