Jesse Putnam was a recurring character on Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. He was portrayed by Jason Beaudoin.

He resided in the town of Greendale, located on the opposite side of the Sweetwater River from Riverdale. He was the brother of Joe Putnam and uncle of Theo Putnam.

Early Life

As he was working in the Greendale Mines, he encountered the demon, Apophis, and it possessed him. The demon eventually drove him insane which lead to his brother to become his caretaker with Jesse remaining in a bedridden, catatonic state.

Throughout Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Part 1

He's cared for by Susie and his brother until Sabrina Spellman does an exorcism to free him from his demon; however, he's murdered by Madame Satan. He is taken to Spellman Mortuary where his body is taken care of.[1]

Physical Appearance

Due to being bedridden for all of his appearances, Jesse was a gruffly looking man with a stumbled beard.


Due to him being a host for the demon, Apophis, none of his true personality had a chance to be revealed. Although Jesse brother believed that something snapped in him after one of his shifts at the mines, which suggests that Jesse was an mentally sane person prior to his possession.
