Jessica is a student at Harry Herpson High School. She is a popular girl in Morty's math class who he desires to be with romantically and often has surreal daydreams about, almost exclusively sexual in nature. Much to Morty's dismay she is already in a relationship with Brad, whom she frequently experiences difficulties with. She is voiced by Kari Wahlgren.
Morty has an obvious crush on her, but Jessica doesn't acknowledge Morty frequently. So far, she has only spoken to him directly three times. In the Pilot, when Rick and Morty escape from Intergalactic Customs, the duo crash into her table. Morty and her have a brief exchange before Rick rips him away. In "M. Night Shaym-Aliens!", a simulated, holographic projection of Jessica attempts to seduce Morty in exchange for the recipe for concentrated dark matter. In "Big Trouble In Little Sanchez", Jessica questions Morty on his relation to the now younger Rick, the two are later seen slow dancing together at the school dance. Jessica also has a few minor mentions in "Mortynight Run", once as a [foot related] thought read from Morty's mind and a second time as a phase of a shapeshifting flower in the musical number "Goodbye Moonmen"
Jessica plays a fairly significant role in the episode "Rick Potion #9". Morty uses a "love potion" concocted by Rick to attempt to make Jessica fall in love with him. The potion succeeds however the strand of the Flu Virus that Jessica carries infects the school, and eventually the world. This version of Jessica is last seen in mutated "Cronenberg" form before Rick and Morty flee to replacement dimension, almost identical to Earth Dimension C-137.
Morty and Jessica's longest time spent in conversation is seen in "Ricksy Business" immediately after Jessica is seen irritated by Brad's actions. Morty comforts her then proceeds to take her on a tour of Rick's garage, he begins to tell of his adventures when they are interrupted by Squanchy. Jessica is seen leaving with Brad to attend the after party together.
Jessica is a teenage girl with orange hair, standing half a head taller than Morty. She wears a light blue or green headband, a short sleeved magenta buttoned polo shirt, and a purple skirt.
Jessica hasn't expressed much of a personality, given that she had such little screen time, her part in the series thus far has been as Morty's love interest however she has expressed some level of depth. Her most exposing time on screen is in Ricksy Business, where she has a brief interlude from the party alone with Morty, whom she begins to open up to. This ultimately leads no where and Jessica remains a seemingly shallow character with plenty of potential for more development.
In the beginning of the series, Jessica was almost entirely oblivious to Morty's existence, only knowing his name at first sight of him. The two had brief exchanges over the season, most sparked by Rick in some way or another. In the season 1 finale, Ricksy Business he came close to confessing his feelings to her, but was interrupted by Squanchy. Nothing is known of the details of the pairs relationship however the latest appearance of the two was in the episode Big Trouble In Little Sanchez, where they were seen slow dancing together, as a couple attending the school dance.
Jessica and Brad are assumed to be dating throughout most of the series however Jessica is blatantly unhappy in this relationship. This illustrates a level of depth to her character even early on in the story. They fight consistently through out the series and Jessica was last seen romantically with Morty. It can be assumed that Brad and Jessica have had a falling out by this point however no information is given.
Jessica has had a very few brief connections with Rick over the course of the series so far. In Ricksy Business, she was intrigued by Ricks inventions. In Big Trouble In Little Sanchez, much like all the other students, was amazed at how cool of a student Rick had become as "Tiny Rick."
Jessica's friend pushes to make her popular and cares a great deal about how the rest of the school sees her. She is not a good influence on her, because she convinces her to act like kind of a bitch just so that people will look up to her instead of down. Jessica likes her because she thinks she has good advice and sees her as not only a friend, but someone who she look to for guidance. Personally, Jessica doesn't care about being popular and she really only acts the way she does because her friend tells her to.
