Josslyn Jacks is a Port Charles High School Graduate and a Freshman at Columbia University studying Fashion with dreams of being the next big thing in the fashion industry. While in High School Josslyn loved to party and she often hung out with her niece who is the same age as her, Briana Corinthos whenever her parents would always fight. Josslyn was seen to be self centered and bossy and spoiled due to her parents amount of money. Josslyn sometimes mistreats people which is one of the reasons Briana finally broke off their friendship, other then the fact that Briana and Noah Drake started dating no to soon after Josslyn broke up with him due to his heroin addiction. Through out the series, unlike most people who's personalities develop and go through stuff and mature, Josslyn never did and remained spoiled and immature even to her last appearance where she tried to sabotage Briana's validictorian speech, although she did try to make amends with Briana but their friendship was never repared due to Briana not trusting her. Josslyn is the daughter of Carly and Jasper Jacks, sister of Michael Corinthos and Morgan Corinthos niece of Jerry Jacks, and aunt of Briana Corinthos, Trinity Corinthos, Leah Corinthos and Violet Corinthos.
In April 2009, Kelly Lee told Carly she was pregnant and that it was a very high-risk pregnancy; Carly needed to avoid stress. The baby was due in November. On October 6, after dreaming about her grown daughter, Carly announced to the family that the baby will be named Josslyn John Jacks. On October 29, Carly was kidnapped by Claudia Zacchara and went into labor. Carly escaped after causing a car crash and made her way to a cabin. Claudia found her and helped Carly through Josslyn's breech birth, delivering her on screen during the November 3 episode. Afterwards, Claudia tried to steal the baby, but she was stopped when Michael happened upon their car, heard Carly's screams, and clubbed her with an ax handle, killing her. Josslyn was born on Claudia's birthday (October 29).
Both Michael and Morgan were protective of their little sister; Morgan went as far as sabotaging Carly and Jax's cars on Thanksgiving so they would spend Thanksgiving together for the sake of Josslyn. Josslyn was christened on January 29, 2010 with Jason Morgan and Lulu Spencer as her godparents.
Franco approached Josslyn in the park while Jax had his back turned. However, Franco did not harm Josslyn and after Franco left, Josslyn was safe in Jax's arms. On December 15, 2010, Carly came home to find Josslyn with Jax's brother, Jerry, a criminal. Jerry later said that he would not harm Josslyn, but that he would kill Carly if she got in the way. During the week of March 14, 2011, Josslyn was taken to the hospital, where her parents were informed that she had a rare form of cancer with tumors on both kidneys. After Carly learned that Jake Spencer was on life support and his organs were viable, she went to his biological father (Jason Morgan) and asked for Jake's kidneys. Jason consulted Elizabeth Webber and Lucky Spencer (Jake's parents); with encouragement from Lucky, Elizabeth agreed to the kidney donation and saved Josslyn's life.
Soon after Josslyn recovered, Jax began his mission to obtain sole custody of her. However, Carly was only willing to share custody. Jax, afraid of Josslyn's life being in danger (because of Sonny and Jason), sued for sole custody. Carly and Jax met with their court-appointed mediator on July 6, and Carly lost her temper with the mediator because she accused Michael of being a danger to Josslyn. On July 19, Carly received full custody of Josslyn after Jax was arrested for assault and drug possession (after he was framed by Sonny).
