Jessie is second born in a family of five kids. Their mother and father divorced many years ago and her mother remarried, but neither fathers are part of their lives. In December 2020, their lives took another heartwrenching turn as their mother suddenly passed away after giving birth to their baby sister. The baby's birth came suddenly, and sadly, they were unable to make it to the hospital in time. The children are now living with their grandparents who are older and rely solely on piece works for support, and the baby is staying with and being cared for by their aunt.
Jessie is the second oldest of the family and is in Standard 3. She enjoys nsima and playing netball. She is also a singer in the church choir.
