Jessica Furtado Nickson (née Graf) was a HouseGuest on Big Brother 19 (US).

Jessica was known for her showmance with Cody Nickson, which ultimately led to her and Cody becoming targets week after week. She is also known for her petty rivalry with Josh Martinez, who would constantly pester her and Cody with the nickname "Meatball". Jessica was initially put in a state of power with Cody's alliance of showmances, as well as with Christmas Abbott, Paul Abrahamian, and Dominique Cooper. But as she rose to power, she fell just as quickly, with Cody attempting to backdoor Paul and then Christmas, which turned the entire house against them. When Cody was backdoored in week 2, Jessica was left all alone. Despite being nominated in week 3, America tempted her with the halting hex which she accepted, and she managed to survive eviction against her ally Dominique.When Cody returned to the game, he reunited with Jessica.

In week 4, Jessica snagged the HoH win, but her HoH was botched by Paul and Alex, with her pawn Ramses Soto being evicted over her target, Josh Martinez. After being blind-sided by the house, she revealed to the house that she had the third temptation, which quickly gained attention of fellow houseguests, most notably, HOH, Paul. This left her and Cody nominated. She used her halting hex in week 5 after the house continued to give her and Cody hard times, therefore making Paul's HoH a waste. The week after, Jessica was cursed and was stuck as a third nominee, leaving the house, except Cody, overjoyed . When Jessica failed to win PoV she stayed on the block. She was evicted in a 7-1-0 vote, only gaining the vote of Cody to stay. She came in 12th place, and became the final member of pre-jury.
