Oscar Nero-Quartermaine and Josslyn Jacks are fictional characters and a former couple on the ABC daytime soap opera, General Hospital.


Oscar was first seen at Josslyn's house for a party. Oscar and Josslyn shared their first kiss on September 14, 2017. After learning that his mother Kim knew Drew Cain in the early 2000s, they both began to suspect that Drew might be Oscar's father. Joss swiped a coffee mug from Drew's penthouse (one he recently drank out of) after she and Oscar paid Drew and Sam a visit under false pretenses. She then used the mug to run a DNA test. They got results but Oscar didn't want to know. Later on, Kim told Drew that Oscar is his son.

Oscar eventually changed his mind and wanted to know. The test confirmed that Drew is indeed his father. On Christmas, Oscar decided to spend it with his new family the Quartermaines. While there he meets his little sister, Scout.

On the 4th of July, Oscar spends the holiday in the park with Josslyn to watch the fireworks. They are joined briefly by Cameron Webber and Oscar becomes slightly uncomfortable when he learns of Josslyn and Cameron's past closeness. On September 5, 2018, it's revealed that Oscar has an inoperable brain tumor and may only have months to live. His mother has been searching for treatments for two years but there's nothing anyone can do.

On September 24, Oscar found out about his cancer from Cameron and then it was confirmed by his parents. He felt betrayed by his parents as they didn't tell him and made him think he has years to live.

On October 17, Josslyn stated that it's Oscar's birthday.

At the beginning of 2019, Dr. Terry Randolph tells Oscar, Josslyn, and his parents that the treatment for his brain tumor did not work and that he will die in a matter of seven to eight months, but it might also go as early as six weeks. Oscar decides that he wants to live the rest of his life having fun. He tells Joss that he has not seen a lot of Port Charles and that he wants to see The Catacombs. They get as far as getting to a cellar that is above them and he has another seizure. He is saved by Drew and Jason after Sam finds them trapped and is taken to the hospital for further observation.

In March, Oscar, Josslyn, Trina, and Cameron decide to travel to Niagara Falls because the latter is too distressed about his mother marrying a potential serial killer. Once at the motel, Oscar professes his love for Josslyn, but had another seizure and was thus hospitalized yet again. In March 19, it was revealed that Oscar's tumor is re-growing and he has less than a month. 

On April 4, 2019, Oscar was with Josslyn talking about their future together when all of sudden Oscar has a severe seizure that caused him to fall on the bridge. Josslyn witnesses the whole thing and freaks out but Oscar is saved and rushed to General Hospital. When his parents Drew and Kim get the bad news, he ends up in a coma as result of the severe seizure and his brain tumor re-growing. Terry tells Drew and Kim that if Oscar wakes up he won't be the same.

Oscar eventually does wake up, but he is very weak. The right side of his body was greatly impacted due to the seizure. The doctor says he only has days left. Monica suggests that he and his family should spend their last days together as a family and they move into the Quartermaine Mansion. On April 29, 2019 (shown on May 1, 2019), Oscar died in his sleep and was escorted into heaven by his great-grandparents, Edward and Lila Quartermaine. On May 2, Oscar's will was read and both his parents dreamed about him after his passing. 

On May 10-13, Oscar was cremated and his ashes were poured over a meadow in his name ("Oscar's Meadow") by all of his loved ones in Rice Park. Oscar is later seen as a ghost at The Nurses' Ball as Josslyn sees him when their song was playing. He is also shown in a video message before the Nurses' Ball. On June 4, Oscar's parents agree to pour the rest of his ashes at Mount Kilimanjaro. Oscar's cell phone goes missing, leaving Josslyn heartbroken as she tries to find it and even send a text message. 

On June 17, Josslyn, Trina, and Cameron try to contact Oscar's spirit. The glass of water they use moves along with flares of the candle as Oscar's ghost is still around and even a photo was displayed of Oscar. After the paranormal experiment is interrupted by Josslyn's mother Carly, she tries to help Josslyn cope with her grief. 

On June 18, both his parents returned home from pouring the rest of his ashes over Mount Kilimanjaro. The Quartermaine family sets up "The Kilimanjaro Fund" from part of Oscar's ELQ shares, to help teenagers apply for grants so they can climb Mt. Kilimanjaro.

On July 10-11, 2019, Oscar's official will reading was read. He gave Josslyn his compass and he gave his best friend Cameron his car and permission to date Josslyn.
