Jesse was a street racer, mechanic and the brains behind Dominic Toretto's operations. He suffers from Attention Deficit Disorder and often stutters when he is nervous. He is responsible for creating the designs and for building the race vehicles such as Brian's Toyota Supra with expert precision.
The Fast and the Furious
When Brian came to Jesse with his totaled Supra, Brian O'Conner gave Jesse directly $15,000 to spend fixing it. Jesse did more than just that. He installed an expensive Bomex Bodykit for Brian's Supra. He also equipped it with a 'Dual Wet-Shot Nitrous Engage. That helped Brian smoke a 'Ferrari F355 Spyder on BT. When he lost the pink slip to his 1995 Volkswagen Jetta in a Race War with Johnny Tran, he drove off the lot, appearing like he was backing out on his deal with Tran. When Jesse later shows up at Dom's house to apologize,Tran and Lance drive by on dirt bikes and shoot at the group missing everyone but Jesse who is shot and killed, before being chased by Brian and Dominic.
