Jericho Cusick is the godfather of Theresa, David and Tom. David and Tom's grandfather, Derek, was Jericho's best friend and spirit twin. Jericho's wife, Orenda, passed away in early 2015, leaving Jericho grief stricken.

Jericho's nearly half-century friendship with Eleanor Niles turns romantic in late 2015. The following year, they move from Canada to England, and live in a cottage that David and Lia built for them on Beak's End property.

Jericho is highly spiritual, blunt, and overall, a balanced human being. He is happiest when working the land and raising animals, and a curious and open-minded person

His presence at Beak's End is a blessing for the Piersons. He is well liked by everybody.
