Mike was born in Sacramento, California. When he was ten years old, his family moved to Forks and opened a shop called Newton's Olympic Outfitters. He became quite a popular student in high school, and has dated some of the most popular girls, including Lauren Mallory. When Bella Swan first moved to town, he was quite interested in her and attempted to pursue her a few times until he realized that she was dating Edward.
Jessica was born in Austin, Texas. Her parents moved to Forks when she was very young, but she has always thought of herself as being less provincial than the locals. While attending high school, she became fairly popular and hung out with both Lauren Mallory and Angela Weber, and later Bella Swan, though she wasn't loyal to any of them.
Mike and Jessica had dated for a while in their sophomore year, but they broke up shortly after.
Twilight - Eclipse
In Twilight, Mike pursues new school girl, Bella, and asks her to prom even after Jessica asked him, but she turns him down and suggests that he asks Jessica instead, knowing that she wants to go with him. He takes her advice and Jessica quickly accepts his invitation. They are later seen together at prom.
Their relationship is mentioned to have ended sometime after Twilight and before New Moon, but they remain friends of sorts and Mike attempts to make his move on Bella yet again.
In the movie adaptation of Eclipse, Mike gives a paper for Jessica's graduation speech, but she throws it at his head and brushes off his choice of speech.
