Once a Swan and a Magpies, the 34-year-old will run out for the Roosters next season, returning to the South Australian competition a full three seasons after calling time on his tenure with Glenelg.
With 127 AFL appearances made between 2007 and 2017, White is set to bring a wealth of experience to Prospect Oval.
And after claiming premiership honours with the Bays in 2019, forward-turned-ruck has already scaled the SANFL's summit.
Speaking in the wake of the Roosters' coup, head coach and former Power player Jacob Surjan contented White was eager to help the club avenge their recent grand final loss to Norwood.
“(I'm) excited to have Jesse play for the roosters in season 2023," Surjan told nafc.com.au.
"A few days after the grand final, I received a call from Jesse who is very invested in the North Adelaide area and community and wanted to have a crack at SANFL football again. A premiership ruckman and B&F winner at Glenelg in 2019, Jesse will provide a lot of upside to our team in season 2023 which we are all excited to see."
Despite featuring in two of the past three grand finals, North Adelaide hasn't tasted premiership success since 2018.
White's AFL journey began after being selected with the 79th selection of the 2006 National Draft. After 71 appearances in the Harbour City, the Southport product made the trek south, linking up with the Pies for a further 56 outings.
