A smart kid with plenty of attitude, Jett has learnt that survival in the world is about fending for yourself. His mother, was a junkie who constantly relocated when the trouble got too bad or she relapsed.
His mother told all the authorities – including schools – that she was chronically ill, a single mum with a wild child, and that gave her permission to take no responsibility for what cunning Jett did... stealing!
Realising Jett was in over his head, Gina took the struggling tween under her wing after his mum died. Gina’s never-ending kindness offered Jett the mother he never had, while John proved to be a strong father figure. Despite fleeting opposition from Jett’s father, Gina and John decided to adopt Jett. However, when Gina died from an aneurysm the plans had to be put on hold as John wasn’t enough of a desirable candidate to adopt on his own. Jett still lives with John and is helping him get over the death of Gina and move on with his love life.
Jett has made a close mate in VJ, despite the pair not getting on initially - Jett bullied VJ. Constantly fighting at surf carnival training, the pair also came to blows over the ladies. Nina, a former school friend of VJ’s, came between the boys when Jett fell for her, despite VJ holding a long-running grudge against Nina for allegedly stealing his favourite Pokemon card.
Before dating Nina, Jett had an unhealthy crush on married woman Indi. He even locked Romeo in the shed so he could snare some one-on-one time with his beautiful baby-sitter. Needless to say, Romeo gave Jett a talking too. Now Jett is focusing on John and Marilyn’s love life, he thinks they should be together.
