1989-1990EditEmma turned up at the Stewart house in September 1989 after defending herself against her stepfather. She stayed with her aunty Ailsa Stewart and uncle Alf Stewart for a while. Emma attended Summer Bay High School and caused a bit of a stir. She dressed as a punk, even in class, she formed a student rebellion against the uniform but her principal Donald Fisher turned up in class dressed as a punk himself to embarrass her. Outside school, Emma worked at The Bayside Diner and was a lazy employee. She constantly irritated Bobby Simpson. She goes on a date with Adam Cameron and he makes a pass at her but she feels uncomfortable. Adam says he only went out with her for a bet. Emma gets revenge by drilling holes in his raft. Emma became friends with Carly Morris.
In May 1990, Emma's mother Bridget turned up and won Emma back, and Emma moved away with her and Barry but Bridget had split from Barry and used Emma to win him back. Emma found out and returned to Summer Bay. In September 1990, Emma left Summer Bay to become an air hostess, and has not been seen or heard from since. She did not even attend her aunty Ailsa's funeral in 2001.
As of 2017, Emma's whereabouts are unknown.
Full Name: Emma Jackson
First Line: "G'day." (to Alf)
Last Line: "I would've run away a week after I got here if it wasn't for you guys. Living on the streets again. I'll start bawling soon, Ailsa."
Emma mentioned her real father to Bobby Simpson and said he died when she was 8 years old. Bridget may have been married when Emma was born, or if not, she would have been in a relationship.
It seems Emma's mother, Bridget was married at the time she gave birth to Emma, as emma did mention her real father. Jackson is Emma's surname through her stepfather Barry so it is unknown what Emma's birth surname was, unless Bridget was an unmarried mother in a relationship with Emma's father, then Emma would have been born Emma O'Rourke.
Emma arrived in the Bay in September 1989, 7 months after Alison Patterson left the area, meaning the 2 characters never met. If they did they would either be fierce rivals, or best friends.
