Jesse is Miley Stewart's love interest and current boyfriend. In "He Could Be the One", Miley repeatedly tries, but fails to tell her dad that she's dating Jake Ryan again. Soon, Jesse winds up believing that she's hiding something from him. To make her father thankful for Jake, she pretends to like Jesse, but gets in over her head when she starts to have feelings for him, so it's up to Miley to listen to her heart and choose the guy who could "be the one."
In the end, she tells Jesse that there is just something between her and Jake that is special and chooses him over Jesse. Later, in It's the End of the Jake as we Know it, Miley discovers Jake cheated on her and breaks up with him for good, allowing Miley to finally go out with Jesse. Then, in "Been Here All Along". Miley cancels a special father-daughter afternoon with her dad to go on a first date with Jesse instead. After Jesse receives a phone call from his deployed father, their heartfelt conversation leads Miley to realize how fortunate she is to have a father. They eventually start dating and Miley even tells him she's Hannah Montana, but Jesse tells her he already knew because Miley and Hannah have the same beautiful eyes and smile and the fact that Hannah held a concert for children whose parents were stationed overseas just two days after Jesse told Miley about his dad being stationed overseas.
