Overview… “bad boy” sent from New York to stay with his uncle Luke in Stars Hollow so he can get “straightened out.” Jess is not too happy to be transplanted to a small town high school – but, then again, Jess isn’t too happy just about anywhere. In between time spent with his nose in a book and working at Luke’s diner, Jess has found time to hang out with the cute and smart Rory Gilmore. She has a boyfriend, but that isn’t stopping the sparks flying between Jess and Rory.
Personality… rebellious, smart, and alluring. Jess is troubled, after having grown up in a broken home, and so he has trouble trusting people. He’s known to back-talk to authority figures and push away people who try to help him. But, ultimately, Jess does want people to like him; he just doesn’t know how to let them in. If you can get past Jess’ gruff exterior, you see the funny, quick-witted, and thoughtful guy underneath.
