as Jessica Buchanan Delaney
A beautiful chanteuse who sang nightly at Ike Harding's Riverboat nightclub, Jessica was the "other woman" in Robert Delaney's life. A lovely, sensitive young woman, she provided solace for Robert, thereby incurring the wrath of his tyrannical father Jasper and viperous wife India...both of whom would have preferred her immediate departure from town.
A suspect herself, Jessica spent most of her time supporting Robert, who was charged with his father's murder, and dodging poisoned barbs from ill-tempered India. With Robert ultimately cleared of the crime and India's interest in other prey, Jessica was finally free to marry the man she loved. In March 1972, a pregnant Jessica left Somerset with Robert, anticpating a happy, peaceful life together. Unfortunately, a little black cloud of tragedy hung above her head like the Sword of Damacles. Shortly after leaving town, both Jessica and her unborn child perished in an offscreen car crash, proving once and for all she had far more to fear from the whims of Another World's
headwriter than she did from Robert's dysfunctional family.
