Jessica "Jessie" Alden is the elder sister of the Boxcar Children. She's mostly called Jessie, though she is referred to as "Jess" in the first book. She is 12 years old. She is a practical and orginized person. Jessie is known for being a very motherly person. Jessie loves cooking. She often carries a notebook with her everywhere. She is like a mother especially to Benny. She has long, brown hair. She is good at reading maps, which is seen is several books. She ages throughout the series, and is noted to be a high school senior in book seven (however she is de-aged in later books). Her favorite color is blue, and she is shown to love cooking and baking.

There are hints that she harbors a crush on John Carter. She is shown to speak French, and is a certified lifeguard. The books imply that she does not attend college after high school.

Note; although Watch is a family pet, he is most often referred to as Jessie's dog.
