Jesse, Eshai or Yishai, is the father of David, who became the king of the Israelites. His son David is sometimes called simply "Son of Jesse". Jesse was the son of Obed and the grandson of Ruth and of Boaz. He lived in Bethlehem, in Judah, and was of the Tribe of Judah, he was a farmer, breeder and owner of sheep. He was a prominent resident of the town of Bethlehem. Jesse is important in Judaism because he was the father of the most famous king of Israel.
