It’s clear that Jada Hunter’s father is Dr. Marcus Hunter (Richard Biggs), a plastic surgeon who worked in Salem for years and grew up with Steve Johnson (Stephen Nichols) in an orphanage. Steve was placed in an orphanage when his mother, Jo Johnson (Joy Garrett) feared for his life and believed his father, Duke Johnson, would hurt the boy and her other baby, Billy Johnson, who turned out to be Jack Deveraux (Matthew Ashford).

Duke was abusive to his wife and children and a young Steve tried to kill him. When it didn’t work, Jo made a sacrifice for her sons, but later gave birth to Adrienne Johnson (Judi Evans) and raised her. Eventually, Steve, Jack, Jo, and Adrienne all ended up settling in Salem.
