Some girls have all the fun and Jessica was always a little precocious. While Armand was adding up his riches, she was adding up her exploits. She's been getting closer to Carlos Contender (and his wallet). Maybe it's time to invite him over?

Neighborhood Belladonna Cove

Jessica Peterson (previously DeBateau) is a pre-made playable Sim, residing in Belladonna Cove, the neighborhood shipped with The Sims 2: Apartment Life. She is a Fortune Sim with a job in the Slacker career as a Record Store Clerk. Implied to be a gold digger, Jessica was once the wife of the well-known socialite Armand DeBateau, before he broke up with her after she was found in an affair with Mystery Sim. However, her family biography mentions she divorced him when he demanded an heir.

After moving into a small mobile apartment lot, Jessica started pursuing Carlos Contender. This is perhaps due to his money (since Carlos has a large amount of cash). Strangely enough, she seems to have a good relationship with Tara DeBateau, Armand's adoptive daughter. When she is first played, Jessica is 22 days from being an elder.

Jessica has a very negative reputation score, of "Lousy Loser", possibly caused by breaking up with Armand DeBateau, a well known socialite, and because of her only having 3 nice points, which makes her more likely to initiate negative social interactions. Mistakenly, Jessica has a memory of her parents' death but it is a memory for unknown sims, not beloved ones. While Armand had been in love with Jessica before they divorced, the feelings were not reciprocated by Jessica - she has no memory of falling in love with Armand.

Jessica is very skillful and she would perform well Military, Athletic, or Adventurer career. Although she mastered the body skill, she doesn't have the memory of mastering it. General Buzz Grunt and Tybalt Capp also share this oddity.

Jessica, along with Dina Caliente and Agnes Crumplebottom, was once married but had a different last name. In The Sims 2 there is no way to change a person's surname. Her character data had to be edited in SimPE in order for her to have a different surname. Despite being a Fortune Sim, Jessica has a hidden Romance aspiration token, which can be viewed in SimPE.
