American news figure with a penchant for preachers. A church secretary until her publicized seduction by TV evangelist Jim Bakker in 1980, she single-handedly rendered the ministry asunder and sent shock-waves through the P.T.L. (Praise The Lord) movement with her story of betrayed virginity and trysts. With the encouragement of the Reverend Gene Profeta, she offered her help to the P.T.L. telethon in Florida. On 12/06/1980, Hahn claims that televangelist Jim Bakker forced himself on her and left her for his friend John Wesley Fletcher to rape as well in a Florida motel room. Upon returning from Florida, Hahn told her minister, Reverend Gene Profeta about the incident. Profeta helped Hahn secure a lawyer to negotiate a settlement with Bakker's billion-dollar empire. The P.T.L. Club offered Hahn $265,000 in hush money to stay quiet about the incident. She kept the secret for seven years and only received $20,000 in small payments from the P.T.L. Trust fund.
Hahn was raised in a strict Roman Catholic family. Her father deserted the family when the girl was three years old. Her mother, Jessica Moylan and stepfather tried to raise Hahn in a warm, affectionate family. As a young girl, Hahn had strong religious impulses. At 14, she became fascinated with the exuberance of the Pentecostal church in Massapequa, Long Island. She rarely dated and as a teenager spent all her years working for the church. Her devotion to the church turned into a job as the church secretary making $80 a week. As the secretary-baby sitter-consort to the charismatic Reverend Gene Profeta of the Full Gospel Tabernacle Church in Massapequa, Long Island, Hahn was showered with gifts and attention by the minister - plus some heavy petting. In July 1981, seven months after her traumatic encounter with Bakker, Profeta and Hahn had sex for the first time.
In 1987, when Hahn went public with her story and the P.T.L. ministry began to crumble, U.S. newspapers and television news stories focused on the Long Island church secretary's claim of rape and "pay off" money from the P.T.L. Trust fund. At 28, Hahn was hiding in her New York apartment from the media scrutiny. With $40 and living on Triscuits and peanut butter, Hahn contemplated suicide on her birthday. After asking God for guidance, she received a call from Playboy Inc. the next day. They offered Hahn nearly $1 million for her exclusive story to appear in Playboy magazine. Hahn moved to Los Angeles and lived in the Playboy mansion with Hugh Hefner and the other Playboy bunnies.
Hahn apparently took to the life-of-the-sinner with joyful abandon. In September 1988 she did a second Playboy magazine nude lay-out with a grand display of $15,000 cosmetic work in a slimmer nose, plumper breasts and capped teeth. She also made a lucrative video, "Playboy Celebrity Centerfold: Jessica Hahn Bares It All."
In 1989, her mother, Jessica Moylan died at 54 from anorexia and the stress of her daughter's media scandal. Hahn went to work as the host of a Phoenix radio show. She lives in a Beverly Hills condo and would like to be a film actress like her idol Julia Roberts.
