Jacksepticeye Fun Facts
Now that we know the basic stuff about Jacksepticeye, it’s time to get a bit more in-depth and check out some fun and interesting facts about him.
He is the youngest of all his other 4 siblings, raised by John and Florrie McLoughlin. He has two sisters, Allison and Susan, and two brothers, Malcolm and Simon.
He played a lot of video games starting at age 7, but mostly he played his Nintendo Game Boy, back then.
His nickname Jack Septic Eye was given to him as he suffered a football injury in his childhood years, and his eye got a nasty infection because of it, for a while after.
Studied at Limerick Institute of Technology, music technology and production. He didn’t finish it, dropped out after year 3, and moved by himself to Athlone, County Westmeath, in 2014, from his parent’s house, and got a Bachelor of Arts degree from Athlone Institute of Technology.
Becoming so popular made him a target for the fans as well. They found his home in Athlone, so he had to move, deciding to go to Brighton, England. This city seemed more suited for him, with better LGBTQ support and bigger vegan communities.
His YouTube channel content started in 2012, and he first started with voice impressions, and only a year later he started to upload gameplay content. And this is his 10 years mark video he made:
He misses the connection he used to have with his followers, getting good or bad feedback. Is harder these days because social media platforms are too flooded by random plain comments, that don’t matter much.
Fans consider him to be the most enthusiastic gameplay commentator on YouTube and became famous after he won a contest held by PewDiePie, which was a shout-out competition between 6 other YouTubers.
This famous YouTuber doesn’t always do it for himself, but sometimes he pairs up with other fellow YouTubers to gather funds for different charities. One time raising over $1.3 million for an End AIDS campaign.
He’s promised to raise money again, 4th year in a row, on December 10, 2022, streaming for THANKMAS for World Central Kitchen.
A campaign that will help with food for people in need, like Ukraine and homeless people. Especially at this time of year and in these harsh times, lots of people need it a lot. Here are his thoughts on this:
Hopefully, other gamers, like Hannah OwO will join him and the charity campaign on December 10, 2022, and this will become as successful as his other charity events.
His online Coffee Shop, Top of the Morning Coffee and Tea, is his side business that he opened, coffee being one of his passions.
There are some things we can learn from Jacksepticeye and here are some wise words that he said and are worth remembering.
