According to the Chicago Manual of Style, single nouns that end in ess, with the exception of "Jesus", get an apostrophe ess to make them possessive, just like any other single nouns.

Plural nouns, like "kids", just get an apostrophe to make them possessive.

Why is Jesus so special, anyway?

I think Chicago prefers to leave it because it's just so heavily a tradition to do it that way or something.
