The Wild singer took to Twitter to confirm that she will not be back for the third series, telling fans that her music "has to take priority."
Jessie wrote: "I've absolutely loved my time on The Voice and I hope everyone saw and knows how passionately I felt about the show.
"However, I can't wait to promote my new record around the world and that has to take priority.
"I shall be keeping a very close eye on series three, showing my support in every way I can and really hope in some way that I can be part of the show."
Mark Linsey, BBC Controller of Entertainment Commissioning, went on to thank the star for her time on the talent show, stating that bosses "will now start the search for a new coach".
He said: "We're so sorry to see Jessie go as she's been an exceptional coach on, and advocate for, The Voice, but we totally support her decision to leave due to touring commitments overseas.
"We very much hope that Jessie will remain part of the show and come back and perform for us next series. In the meantime, we will now start the search for a new coach."
With Jessie out, it is currently unknown whether fellow coaches Will.I.Am, Danny O'Donoghue or Sir Tom Jones will be back.
As well as confirming her exit from The Voice, Jessie has also denied rumours that her new album is called Gold, writing: "family fortunes noise* eggh egggghhhhhh* #fail #tryagain #keepguessing Muhahahaha."
