When working one night at a nightclub in Melbourne, she allows Heath Braxton to use the bar phone to call his fiancée Bianca Scott. After Zac MacGuire answers and Heath assumes they are having an affair, Jess finds Heath in an alley outside the club and he kisses her.

They then have a one-night stand. Months later, Jess comes to Summer Bay to inform Heath that she is pregnant. Jess gives birth to Harley on the beach with assistance from Heath and Nate Cooper. Jess later faints and tells Nate that she has stage 4 cancer, and will not live to see Harley's first birthday. Jess takes Harley back to Melbourne with her, but when Heath finds out about Jess' medical state, he rushes to help look after him.

Jess then decides that it is for the best interest for the baby that Harley should return with Heath back to Summer Bay.

Heath and Harley goes to Melbourne to attend Jess' funeral and soon return to Summer Bay.
