Here are the mini-bios of all the people Jesse calls friend or family.
As a hero, he was regularly observed to be somewhat impulsive and temperamental, but he was still a fine hero, and soon fell in love with Liberty Belle, who loved him in return. The two eventually married and eventually Jesse Chambers was born.
Years later, he wasn't all too happy when Max Mercury convinced his daughter to become a superhero herself, but heallowed her to do so, to let her have her own freedom to decide for herself. During the confrontation between the speedsters and the zealot Savitar, Johnny was killed, and he was taken into the speedforce - the dimension of speed energy all speedsters draw their power from; the dimension he himself never believed in until the final moments.
And she found some time to fall in love with Johnny Quick and eventually bear his child Jesse Quick.
As a full time member of the Justice Society of America, he was a part of every major confrontation the team ever faced including the "death" of the entire team when they became avatars for the Norse gods and held the battle Ragnarok, in order to save the rest of the world from its disastrous effects. While they did die, they eventually got better, and continued to reform now and again, though with age encroaching they weren't quite as spry as they always had been, and during the Zero Hour event, many of them were killed for good, and Jay apparently retired.
Jay could never stay down long, though. Back home living the "retired life" in Keystone City he has been a constant aid to the other speedsters of the area, and been a warrior alongside them on many occasions. During the weeks when Wally retired as Flash after Linda Park's apparent death, Jay became the protector of Keystone City yet again.
Despite his age, he shows himself to remain a highly capable hero and a great asset to all around him. Most recently, he has taken up a place among the newly recreated JSA and fights the good fight alongside friends old and new.
On one such occasion, some time during the 1960's, a wounded Max was taken in by a kind military family. With the husband often away, and an affection growing between he and the wife, the two began an affair. When the affair was discovered, Max ran again, and again leaped forward in time.
In the modern era he has helped bring Jesse into her heroic persona, been a font of speed knowledge to all the speedsters, discovered the affair resulted in his fatherhood, and taken the young speedster Impulse under his wing to train and look after.
