Jessica Rose Paetsch (born January 31, 1993 in Denver, Colorado) is an American pair skater. With former partner Jon Nuss, she is the 2008 U.S. Junior Champion and a two-time bronze medalist at the Junior Grand Prix Final.
Paetsch first tried to compete with Brady Miller. She teamed up with Jon Nuss in May 2005. Paetsch & Nuss are the 2006 US National novice champions and 2007 national junior bronze medalists. They won the bronze medal at the 2006 Junior Grand Prix Final.
Although they placed fourth on the day, they were later awarded the bronze medal from the 2007–2008 Junior Grand Prix Final following the retroactive disqualification of first-place-finishers Vera Bazarova and Yuri Larionov due to a positive doping sample from Larionov. This bronze medal guaranteed Paetsch & Nuss a spot on the 2008–2009 Grand Prix of Figure Skating. They were assigned to the 2008 Skate Canada International Grand Prix competition.
After qualifying for the 2010 U.S. Figure Skating Championships, Paetsch and Meekins announced the end of their partnership in December 2009.
