Buy Me a Coffee

S3E7 Jessica

Season 3, Episode 6


Age: 21
Location: Missouri
Addiction: Heroin
What’s memorable: The very close but co-dependent relationship with her grandfather Paw Paw, the things that she puts him through to get high, the disturbing nodding off over the coffee table with a needle in her hand, how self-aware Jessica is. She knows perfectly well what she’s doing and how awful her life is, and despite her apathetic attitude, it’s clear that she hates it and feels hopeless.

Official Synopsis: Jessica, 21, comes from a tight-knit family. Her father, mother, sister and grandfather all work at the family-owned gas station. But Jessica’s not allowed to work there any more. Ever since Jessica became addicted to heroin at 17, her family cannot trust her. And even worse–her addiction is straining family relationships. Everyone wants to see her go to treatment, however just organizing the intervention is tearing them apart.

Original Air Date: April 2007
Interventionist: Candy

    I was just wondering how Jessica was doing in life and if she is sober? I also live in Missouri about 30 minutes from St.Louis, close to her age and am a recovering addict from heroin. So I no the struggle but I’m going on 3 years and watching a rerun tonight of her episode really got to me and made me want to cry for her because I’ve been there. Idk maybe because it’s from her living so close to me but I just hope she’s doing well.

    Is she doing well? I hope so…

  3. ANON

    I just seen her episode on LMN tonight and I hope she is doing better..

    This was one hell of an intervention. When Paw-Paw Jean said to Jessica, “If I could switch places with you, I would” that just hit me right in the feel.

    And what a hard welcome back for her to go right into jail and relapse after leaving. Good luck, Jessica. I hope life gives you all the best.

    Jessica was recently all over the news as she was caught breaking into homes jn decent neighborhoods stealing jewelry and other valuables… She was caught and arrested and is currently in jail… Prayers to her family and especially her young son. Thank God her parents have full custody of him. So sad, as I know her personally and she is a really sweet girl when she’s clean.

    Aw really Karen she hasn’t stayed sober!?? Breaks my heart. Wonder if the grandpa who enabled her is still alive. What town were they from? Thanks for the update, sad to hear this news.

  7. Marissa Robyn

    Oh I didn’t know she had a son. I remember in her episode her grandpa paid for her abortion a few years back. Really hope she will sober up now.

  8. Marissa Robyn

    You were right. Here’s the article from February this year when she got busted. She’s the one on the right. Her and her friend who workin together. How sad. She has so much potential hope she turns her life around.

  9. Herb

    Is “paw paw” still kickin?

  10. melissa

    I just saw a girl on Live PD from greene county missouri that looks just like her!

  11. Stuey

    If this is the right Jessica, she is to be released next year in 2021.

  12. Janel

    Looks like she’s doing very well, working at a hair salon, and maybe has a son?

    1. John

      Is it really her? It is kind of hard to tell. Did she really go to jail? I have checked all the links in this thread and the timeline doesn’t make sense.

      1. Kitty Katt

        It’s not the same Jessica.

      2. Janel

        I’m sure it is. If you look thru the “likes” on her pictures, you will see her relatives

    2. Kitty Katt

      This isn’t the same Jessica.

      1. Janel

        I’m sure it is. If you look thru the “likes” on her pictures, you will see her relatives

    3. Kitty Katt

      Janel, I couldn’t reply on your other comments to me so I’m doing it here.
      The Jessica you posted was anorexic, had a child and was a DJ.
      Te other Jessica (the one who’s picture is posted above) is a different one. The FB pic (the link you gave) even looks like the anorexic Jessica and not this Jessica.

  13. Shelby

    Is there any update on her story?

  14. Nivey

    Whoever posted about her being a stylist and doing well is correct! It says from Missouri and looks just like Jessica! This was the link for her work place as a stylist! She’s been getting rave reviews! How amazing! Good for her I hope she continues to do well! Xo

  15. PBH

    Here she is, looking fabulous, working as a hairstylist in Missouri

    I was in prison with Jess for a time, and for almost 2 years we were in the same cell. In situations like that given all circumstances sometimes you become close with the people who you share the living space almost more so than anyone else in your life. For many reasons some of which have to do with our own families issues probably stemming from whatever let us to sharing the same 12ft by 8 foot space with four other women. Like it or not we’re on top of each other and get to know each other on a very intimate level. And I can assure you that the Jessica Rayman who is doing fabulous hair and St Louis is most definitely not the Jessica Rayman that I was in vandalia with nor is it the Jessica Raymond that was on the episode of intervention. I’m going to do a little bit of homework but just because they both have dark hair and they’re both White they don’t look alike at all. You guys are crazy if you think that that’s the same girl she’s not a DJ either not even close.

    1. Jayla

      So do you know how she’s doing now?

    2. Skippo

      honestly i think you may have just been housed with a different person who shares their name because i do personally believe the person in those facebook and work links looks extremely similar to the person in the episode. the person featured in the burglary article doesn’t look particularly similar though. either way hope all i well

      1. Kara

        What about Karen’s comment towards the top that said she knows her personally and that she was arrested for breaking into homes and stealing jewelry and that it was all over the news and that her son has been raised by her parents they have full custody… I’m not sure either way I was just sharing what Karen commented on ,

      2. Kara

        I researched further and found the same Jessica that everyone’s talking about with the glasses in the sun if you go down further her old her Facebook page does show that her family is the same family that was on the show so everybody is right saying that she is a hairdresser she has her son her family is the same family so it’s not the one that went to jail and broke into peoples home for jewelry. I’m glad to see that she’s actually doing really well’p

      3. Kara

        Here’s her link to her old profile and if you look on her family it with her mom and dad and sister

    I have never been SO angry watching an episode as this one. The way she alienated, manipulated and in general treated her loving and selfless, frail grandpa infuriated me. She’s sober now, but he never got to see her sober because she relapsed and he died a few years after the show aired. My mom is an addict and puts my grandpa through similar situations and it blows my mind the things they do to their “favorite person”.
