Jess is a Supergirl (TV series) character and the assistant/secretary of Lena Luthor.


Jess appears in one scene in the episode Survivors (S02E04). Lena calls her Jess and the scene introduces her as Lena's assistant/secretary, but no surname or long form of her given name is established in canon.

The IMDB page for the episode only lists her as "Receptionist".[1]


Jess is a popular supporting character in Lena Luthor centric and in particular in Kara/Lena fanfiction, where she is typically Lena's loyal assistant/secretary, ally and sometimes friend.

In fanfiction Jess' full name is often Jessica "Jess" Hoang, which was used for the first time [2] in the fic Sunlit Honey and Lavender Sunsets by wtfoctagon.

This is a good example of fanon and sometimes this is addressed and played with in fanfiction as well:

“Who’s this Jess person?”

The imp laughs, “Who’s Jess? That’s a good one!” He keeps laughing until he looks over and sees Kara’s furrowed brows. “Wait, you seriously don’t know who Jess is?” At her continued blank stare, he adds, “You know, Lena Luthor’s most loyal assistant?” 

Kara further furrows her brows, trying to recall a particularly loyal assistant. “It seems like Lena has a new assistant every other week. The only one that really seemed to stick around for long was Eve. Though I think maybe one of them was named Jess. Or was it Jamie?” 

“Huh,” Mxyzptlk seems just as confused as Kara had been. “This must be the one reality where Jess isn’t an integral part of Lena’s life. No wonder this timeline is so messed up!”
