Jessie's mother, [[Miyamoto]], was a high-ranking Team Rocket agent. When Jessie was around the age of three, Miyamoto left on a mission to the {{wp|Andes}} to record the voice of the elusive Pokémon {{p|Mew}}. However, after Miyamoto disappeared, Jessie was put into a foster home which had very little money. There were times when she had no choice but to eat snow because of a lack of more nourishing food.
When she was old enough, she left home to become a Pokémon nurse in [[Johto]]. However, the school she was enrolled in was literally for ''Pokémon'' nurses (i.e. {{p|Chansey}}), so she failed to graduate and left, leaving behind a [[Nurse Joy's Blissey|Chansey]] she had befriended there. In the episode ''[[EP129|Ignorance is Blissey]]'', Jessie was reunited with that same Chansey, which had since evolved into a {{p|Blissey}}. It is assumed that she then traveled back to [[Kanto]], where she enrolled in [[Pokémon Tech]], a {{pkmn|Trainer}}'s school, she met [[James]], and subsequently failed and dropped out. After this, Jessie and James joined a bicycle gang in [[Sunny Town]], where Jessie was known for swinging a chain above her head as she rode her bike, acquiring the nickname "Chainer Jess". It was revealed in [[EP188]]that she was a model at one point.
Due to conflicts in canon between Kanto and Johto episodes and the special episode ''[[SS012|Training Daze]]'', what happened between Jessie and James after the bike gang is unknown. What ''is'' known, as shown in the special episode, is that they joined Team Rocket separately and were on initially unfriendly terms after being grouped with {{MTR}} but they quickly made up and became good friends.
