    Jade made her appearance in Oakdale telling Lily that she was Lily’s sister, Rose D’Angelo’s daughter. Jade told Lily that Rose had an affair with a man when she was a teenager. Unable to care for her child, she gave her daughter to an orphanage. Lily was skeptical at the moment so she called the orphanage. They verified that Rose indeed gave birth to a little girl and turned her over to the orphanage. That was enough proof for Lily. She didn’t need a blood test to prove anything. Lucinda and Holden didn’t trust Jade from the beginning and pleaded with Lily to get a blood test, but she refused. Lily welcomed Jade with open arms.

    Weeks later, Jade stole Lily’s charm bracelet. Emma caught her, and Jade lied and told her that Lily had given it to her. Lily started to become suspicious, and when she did more investigating at the orphanage she found out that Rose had a little girl, but Jade wasn’t that girl. Jade was friends with Rose’s daughter in the orphanage and she heard that Rose’s family was wealthy. She was determined to get a part of it. Lily had taken Jade in, gave her a home, found her a job and made her part of the family, only to have Jade lie to her. That made Lily angry and she threw Jade out of the house.

    During her short stay at the Snyder’s she became good friends with Luke. He confided in her about him being gay, and how he had feelings for his best friend, Kevin. Jade vowed to keep his secret for as long as he wanted her to, and she did. Luke eventually told his family that he was gay so Jade didn’t have to.

    While working at the library, the job that Lily helped her get, she helped Will Munson buy a term paper online. Will got a passing grade and was able to graduate, until the school found out that he purchased it online. He was not allowed to graduate with Gwen, and Jade lost her job. On graduation night, Jade happened to find Will, who was drunk after a fight with Gwen. They started talking and ended up sleeping together. The next day, Will and Gwen made up and moved on. Will helped Jade get another job at Crash, and Gwen offered for Jade to move in with her and Will at her sister, Carly’s house. Later, Jade announced to Will that she was pregnant. Will vowed to stand by and support Jade through the pregnancy, but Will and Gwen soon discovered Jade wasn’t pregnant at all! She had lied.

    Jade got over Will, because she knew that she could never come between Gwen and Will. She set her sights on Will’s half brother, Adam Munson. Adam was cutting a record for Gwen, and he and Jade started dating. The only problem was that Adam was having feelings for Gwen. Jade and Gwen hated one another and never regained their friendship. However, in 2007, Jade realized that Cleo Babbit had bad intentions toward Gwen. She followed Gwen, Maddie, Will and Cleo to Branson, MO where Gwen was set to perform. Cleo kidnapped Gwen and tied her to the railroad tracks, hoping to kill her. Jade saved her life. Soon after, she left town to start fresh.

    Jade returned to Oakdale in 2008.
