- “We kinda got a situation at the lab...Oh! It just got worse!”
- ―Jesse on the phone
Role in the Film
Jesse and Woolter arrive at Doug's lab-converted subway car to deliver a latte to Doug. Just as Doug demands to know if the latte has extra foam, Judy Hopps suddenly pushes Doug out of the train car, locking the three rams outside. Jesse then proceeds to call their mysterious client on his phone, explaining the situation.
Upon realizing Judy and Nick Wilde are stealing the train car, he and Woolter give chase to the moving train car and Jesse manages to break through the front window, getting stuck halfway through. As Jesse attempts to grab Judy, Nick tries to push the ram away but gets knocked back. Jesse briefly manages to grab Judy until he is accidentally knocked off of the train (losing his grip on the bunny) by Woolter after the latter charges through a door that was quickly opened by Nick and runs on the tracks, begging Judy and Nick to stop the train.
Narrowly avoiding getting run over, he jumps to the side against a wall and gets the wool on his belly sheared off by the force of the train brushing up against him, causing him to scream in pain.
- Jesse's name is a reference to the character Jesse Pinkman in the crime drama series Breaking Bad.
- Additionally, his eye patch could be a reference to when Jesse Pinkman once had a swollen eye after being beaten.
- Due to Woolter and Jeese sharing the same voice actor John DiMaggio, Jesse speaks with a somewhat meeker voice in contrast to Wootler's deep and raspy voice. However, Jeese also speaks with a raspy voice when in an agitated state, as evidenced when he breaks in the moving subway car in his attempt to grab Judy.
