Mr. Michael Delaney is Jessica Delaney's father.

He is the inheritant of Half Moon Farm, where the Delaney family lives. He is the husband of Shannon Delaney and also the father of Jess's twin brothers, Dylan and Ryan. He looked after Jess and her brothers while their mother was in New York City acting in a soap opera.

When Shannon and Michael were first married, they lived in New York City. He was a grad student and she was a waitress who wanted to be an actress. They inherited the farm before Jess was born, and it was Michael's idea to make it organic. In 1995 Jess was born, then in 2000 the twins were born.

Michael loves rock music, and Led Zeppelin. That's why the draft horses on Half Moon Farm are named Led and Zep.
