Jesse Parker (b. ca. 1990) was the 19-year-old son of John and Lucy Parker who lived in Sunset Grove. Since magical talent didn't manifest until the mid-twenties no one knew if he was a witch like his mother or a mundane like his father. However, he did share his mother's interest as a birder. Unlike his mother, he did like the O'Neills or at least 18-year-old Kathleen who he thought was cute.

As a birder, Jesse took part in the annual Yule Bird Count between Sunset Grove and Fernwood. One year was especially memorable when his mother was provoked by Fred O'Neill into a witching contest.

It began normally enough that Yule morning. Jesse and his mother looked out the window into the backyard and observed an Anne's hummingbird and a yellow-rumped warbler. Lucy then attuned the kitchen crystal to the Cosmos-Spanning Consortium and announced that Sunset Grove birders had spotted house finches, house sparrows, white-crowned sparrows, a California towhee and a barn owl. She then checked the Fernwood scroll and found reported double-crested cormorants, a pied-billed grebe, a northern shoveler, a California scrubjay and some American robins.

While Jesse's mother was busy with the crystal, he saw a flock of tiny, twittering birds fly to the apricot tree next door; bush tits. He called them to her attention and after some discussion, they settled on 25 birds which Lucy reported on the Sunset Grove CSPANC scroll. They then had breakfast with Jesse scrambling some eggs for himself while his mother had a bagel.
