Jessica Parish[4] is a character in Saints Row 2.

Overview[]

Saints Row 2[]

Jessica is Maero's girlfriend. The two met at a Feed Dogs concert.[5] She is a Stilwater University sorority girl[6] that came from a rich family but gave up her comfortable and wealthy life to be with Maero.[7] She has great involvement in the gang, and is the only person who is able to calm Maero down when no one else can. She thinks much more than Maero, and tries to convince him to destroy the 3rd Street Saints before they become a dangerous threat to The Brotherhood. She is friendly at first, but her evil streak is quickly shown after Maero's face is burned by radioactive waste the Saints put in his tattoo ink.[8]

In an act of revenge, she kidnaps Carlos and orders Brotherhood members to chain him to a truck and drag him through the docks. She calls Playa to tell them of her act of revenge.[9]

Jessica funds Brotherhood's activities.[6] When she goes to the Stilwater Savings & Loan bank with a suitcase full of Brotherhood money, Shaundi spots her and notifies Playa, who kidnaps her and puts her in the trunk of her Phoenix.[2] To avenge Carlos, Playa goes to the demolition derby in the University Stadium, then places Jessica's car at the end of the line of cars to be destroyed. As Maero runs over the car rows in his monster truck, crushing them, he hits a ramp, and lands directly on Jessica's car, killing her.[10]

Saints Row: The Third[]

Jessica's story is used in a speech by Cyrus Temple to gain public sympathy, depicting Jessica as an innocent individual, and omitting her involvement with the Brotherhood.[7]

Let me tell you about Jessica Parish, a girl from Stilwater who ran away from home to be with her tough-guy boyfriend. Jessica thought her life was pretty sweet, until a gang banger kidnapped her, threw her in the trunk of a car, and laughed as her boyfriend crushed her in a monster truck rally. If Jessica Parish was your daughter...how far would you want me to go?
— Cyrus Temple, during his opening speech about the STAG Initiative.[11]

Saints Row IV[]

Jessica is mentioned by Playa when fighting Maero,[12] Playa sarcastically asks Maero how Jessica is, only for Maero to respond that he is going the kill them. She is mentioned again in several Homie conversations, with Maero making it very clear that he hasn't forgiven the Saints for murdering Jessica, and despite killing Jessica to get even for Carlos, Maero angrily points out that "There is no even". Some of her history is brought up between Maero and DJ Veteran Child. Jessica knew Veteran Child and was friends with him.
