How rich is Jessica Amlee? As of mid-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $15 million, earned through a successful career in acting. She’s done films, television shows, commercials, and endorsements throughout her career, and as she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Career Beginnings
Very little is known about Jessica’s life before her rise to fame as an actress, as she hasn’t revealed a lot of details regarding her family, childhood, and education. One name dropped is that she’s the granddaughter of famous saxophone player P.J. Perry.
She began her acting career in 2001, gaining her first professional projects on television, mostly guest roles in shows such as “The Outer Limits”, “Smallville”, “Mysterious Ways”, and “Andromeda”. She was then cast in her first feature film project – “They”, a supernatural horror film following a group of four adults experiencing night terrors leading them to deal with the fallout of their childhood experiences. Wes Craven served as the executive producer of the project.
She continued with television work, and had a recurring role in “Jeremiah”, a post-apocalyptic show that aired on Showtime, but was later scrapped due to the network no longer being interested in science fiction programming. She also had a recurring role in “Stephen King’s Dead Zone”, which is about a man who discovers he has psychic abilities after coming out of a coma.
Rise to Fame
Amlee worked on the Canadian film “My Life Without Me”, starring Sarah Polley and Mark Ruffalo. It is based on a book entitled “Pretending the Bed Is a Raft”, which is the story of a woman with a family who finds out she is going to die soon. Amlee then appeared in the television movie “The Love Crimes of Gillian Guess”, while also having a guest role in “Stargate: Atlantis”.
In 2004, she was cast in “Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2” which is a sequel to the 1999 film “Baby Geniuses”. During the same year, she had the project “Chestnut: Hero of Central Park”, a family film starring Makenzie Vega and Abigail Breslin. The film’s story is about a Great Dane who is adopted by two orphan girls who try to hide the dog from the girls’ new parents. The following year, she tried her hand at voice acting for the film “Barbie and the Magic of Pegasus”, in which she voiced the character of Blush. It is the sixth entry of the “Barbie” film series, and the second original story. She also took on the project “Eve and the Fire Horse” which won the Special Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival.
After a few more television movies and guest roles in several series, Jessica gained one of her more notable roles in the film “Beneath”. It is a collaboration between Paramount Classics and MTV Films and the first direct to video title produced by the latter. She was then cast as a series regular for the television show “Heartland”, of which she was a part from 2007 to 2013, a drama series following a family’s highs and lows as they go through life on a ranch – it became the longest running one hour-scripted drama in Canadian television history, surpassing “Street Legal”. She later returned for guest roles during the 2017 run of the show.
Around the same time, she then got her second series regular role in “Greenhouse Academy”, in which she plays Jackie Sanders. The show is marketed as a tween drama on Netflix, and is based on the Israeli show “The Greenhouse” or “Ha-Hamama”. This rendition of the show was created for international audiences, and was renewed for a second season in 2018.
Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, not much is known in terms of Amlee’s romantic relationships. She has not been vocal about it, and has not shown any indication of her dating life, outside of her work. It is not known if she is in a relationship or married, so the lack of any evidence leads to the belief that she’s single. She is known for doing charity work some of the time, as she donated her services to the Children’s Miracle Network Telethon.

Similar to numerous actresses, she is active online through accounts on social media, particularly on the website Instagram on which she had over 166,000 followers. however, in recent months her account has disappeared from the website, which is an indication that she may have temporarily or permanently shut down her account. It could also be due to a violation of the site’s policy that her account was disabled. Aside from that, there is also a Facebook page of hers but with only 800 followers, although it’s unlikely that she owns it, judging by the bad quality of photos on the account, as well as numerous posts promoting other fan accounts.
