JSTree Parent Node Text

Hello Experts,
I am using JSTree plugin to display my Data.
But when I select the Child node, I wanted to get the Parent node Text on form submit.
I have tried below code.

$(document).on('click', '#btnSubmit', function () {
var parent = [];
        var selectedElms =$js('#IndustryTree').jstree("get_selected", true);
        $.each(selectedElms, function () {
            selectedElmsIds.push(this.text);
            //parent.push(this.parent);            
            var node = $js('#IndustryTree').jstree(true).get_node(this.parent, true);            
            var Parentnode = $js('#IndustryTree').find("[id='" + this.parent + "']");
            parent.push(Parentnode[0].innerText);
        });
});

Open in new window

But When I run this code, in Parentnode[0].innerText I am getting Parent Node text as well as all Child node text. So it is difficult to differentiate the Parent Node Text.

Another issue is when Checked the Parent node, then all child nodes are selected. But I am not getting that selected parent node using below code

var selectedElms =$js('#IndustryTree').jstree("get_selected", true);

Parent Node selection

This code is working when I particularly select the Child node, in this case, parent node CSS class will be jstree-icon jstree-checkbox jstree-undetermined

Child Node selection is Working
Any help would be appreciated
