Jessica is an active member of the Barden Bellas. She is one of the sopranos in the Bellas.
In Pitch Perfect, Jessica's first appearance is at the auditions, where she sang Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone" with others who auditioned. She sang the line, "Dedicated, you took the time." where she points to her watch and shakes like an absentminded person. She is also shown to be active in their performances despite being marked insignificant by Aubrey. Aubrey pointed out that it's like they haven't existed all year long. The Insignificant Ones (as some fans call Denise, Ashley and Jessica) were Fat Amy's backup dancers during her solo in their performance during the ICCA finals.
Although little was seen of her, she appears to have a bubbly and eccentric personality. Every time she is shown she is smiling (almost). She was in the auditions for "Since U Been Gone" saying "Dedicated, you took the time" pointing to her watch. Jessica seems to be a little absent-minded also. She is seen during training being shown to be a little less eccentric in her performances.
In the second film, they are seen linking their arms together in the background, and cuddling at the campfire. Beca says "Jessica, Ashley, to be honest I don't know which one of you is which."
Jessica is close to Denise and Ashley in the first movie in comparison to the other girls in the group.
Jessica seems close to Stacie in the second movie because we can see them talking to
each other. We also see them together a lot.
