|Behind the scenes|
Jean is a freelance writer.
After the Yeerks discovered that Animorphs were in fact humans and not Andalite bandits, the Animorphs had to evacuate their families. While the Animorphs were collecting Cassie's and Rachel's families to relocated to the Hork-Bajir valley, the Yeerks captured and infested Jake's parents.
It is unknown if the Yeerks controlling Jean and Steve were among those that surrender, or if Jean and Steve survived.

- In earlier promotional items such as the Animorphs Alliance handbook and Jake's Animorphs ID card, Jake's mother is referred to as Nikki.
