Jessie is known in Poland. However, I remember being surprised to hear "Jared" for the first time in the film Night at the Museum 15 years ago. It sounded very strange.

The equivalent of Jared could be Jarek from Jarosław.

My Mother's birth name was Czesława and they called her Tessie. She was born in US, Lived in Poland from the age of 6-16 and then came back to the US. That was what she was known as her entire life.

I would never think Tessi comes from Czesława. Was it too difficult to utter her name as Czessi - "cz" pronounced like "ch" in chair?
