Question Stocking for 100 gallon tank

Hey guys, recently got a 100 gallon fisk tank for the family. I'd like to stock the tank with 5 fish, one for each member of the family, cichlids ideally but I'm open to other options. I'd prefer if each of the fish is a different species, but two of them can be the same as well. I'm also stuck with a Jack Dempsey already (taking it from a family member who no longer wants, it's still small at just over 2 inches).

maybe- jack, oscar, two firemouths, and a pleco (what types stay >12 inches?)

or- two jacks, oscar, severum, pleco

maybe- jack, green terror, firemouth, two convicts or two salvini's

I understand the outcome might be be an overly aggressive tank but I'm willing to try and change it if it doesn't work. So what five fish do you guys think will work in a 100 gallon if a Jack is already set as one of the five. Thanks.

Maybe an oscar, pair of firemouths, green terror, and maybe a common pleco or 5-7 bn plecos.
