Who is Jacob Day?
American social media star and YouTuber Jacob Day, was born under the zodiac sign Pisces on 22 February 2002 in Chicago, Illinois USA. He’s known best for his presence on the internet, including his self-titled YouTube channel which is today subscribed to by a few over 130,000 people, and which Jacob launched back on 16 August 2019. All of Jacob’s 117 videos combined have been viewed nearly 10 million times, and most are comedy content as they feature him pranking his friends, reacting to funny videos which he’s found on the internet, and taking on the popular internet challenges.

Education and early life
Jacob was raised in Chicago alongside his brother Luke and sisters Izzy Day and Gracie, by their parents about whom not many details have been shared because Jacob respects their privacy; his father’s believed to be a lawyer and his mother a college professor but this is yet to be addressed by Jacob.
He studied at a local high school in Chicago, and was into multiple activities during his teenage years, as he enjoyed playing various sports with his peers, taking dance lessons and appearing in school plays. Jacob matriculated in 2020, and because he’d already built a fanbase for himself on the internet, he chose not to pursue a college degree, but to move to Atlanta, Georgia and continue working on his career from there.
