Τζέσυ


Explanation:
This is a foreign name, so in Greek the spelling really depends on the person's taste. You could spell it as
Τζέσυ or Τζέσσυ.

Jessi


Explanation:
You don't have to translate names. You use their equivalents in the target language, but I'm afraid there's no equivalent for 'Jessi' in Greek.
If you only want to know how to write it in Greek characters, then it's Τζέσι.

HTH,

Τζέσι


Explanation:
When it comes to names what you do is transliterate them. That means that you transfer the name into the target language converting it into the appropriate alphabet according to its pronounciation. But there is always the option of keeping the name in its original form which is usually acceptable.
