Jessiebelle is the woman appointed to be James's fiance by his parents.
James expressed interest in her when they were children, but James later regretted his choice after the engagement was announced and he was exposed to her bossy personality.
Jessiebelle would try to change James into a proper gentleman and constantly tormented him. Jessiebelle also has a very similar appearance to Jessie.
Jessiebelle was first voiced in the English dub version of the Pokemon anime series in episode 48 of the original series "Holy Matrimony" by Rachael Lillis.
When 4Kids Entertainment lost the license for the Pokemon anime and Pokemon USA produced the show, majority of the characters for the present, past and future were recast.
Jessiebelle made a return appearance in episode 153 of the Diamond and Pearl series "The Treasure Is All Mine!" and was voiced by Michele Knotz.
