Jessie when she meets Zuri and Tony.

Jessie is an 18-year-old girl who moves from a small town in Washington to "The Big Apple", in order to try to live on her own and avoid Donald true. When she is not able to pay the driver, she is thrown out of the cab and found by Tony Chicclini, the building's doorman, and Zuri Ross, one of the Ross family. Once she is introduced to Tony and Zuri, Zuri offers Jessie a nanny job, which she accepts. Jessie is taken to the Ross Penthouse and then introduced to the rest of the Russ kids also including: Luke, a 12-year-old jokester that has an instant crush on her, Ravi, a recently adopted Indian Immigrant who has a apple-toothed lizard named Mr. Kipling, and Emma, the fashionable natural-born child of the Rosses. The children find Jessie too demanding, and in turn, run away in their parents's helicopter. Jessie finds them and throws up on them. Jessie wins over Ravi's friendship by helping him in his video game. Jessie accidentally ruins Emma's science project for the science fair. Zuri intends to cover up for Jessie by telling Emma that Luke was the one who broke her project. She fixes the project, but Emma is disappointed because her entrepreneur parents have no time for her because they are working on their new movie. Jessie tells Morgan and Christina Ross that they don't spend enough time with their children; she gets fired in return. Jessie decides that she should go to the science fair instead of the Ross parents, in order to support Emma. However, Morgan and Christina Ross actually showed up to the fair. Jessie is rehired in the end. At the last couple minutes, the family and Jessie are seen eating ice cream in celebration.
