Jason Eugene was born on 18 October 1993, in New Jersey, USA, and is a YouTube personality, best known from initially earning fame through his personal YouTube channel, on which he posted various video game related content. This later led him to join the popular gaming organization Faze Clan.
The Wealth of Faze Jev
How rich is Faze Jev? As of early-2019, sources estimate a net worth that is over $1 million, earned through a successful career on YouTube. His online fame and association to Faze Clan has led him to numerous opportunities, and as he continues his endeavors, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Career Beginnings
Faze Jev is of African-American, Puerto Rican and Indian descent. He was mainly raised by his grandparents alongside three siblings, and has mentioned that he had a rough childhood and was often rebellious when he was younger. Despite all the problems he may have had during this period, one of his passions since his youth was video games. He played them a lot, and hoped that one day he could make a career out of his love for gaming.
There are no details regarding his education, and very limited information about his life before YouTube. It is known that he began posting on the website YouTube while working another job, and spent around four to five hours a day after work making videos for his channel. This even led him to some sleepless nights as his passion for a video gaming career pushed him forward. Eventually those restless nights would pay off, as his content would eventually earn him more subscribers and so lead him to where he is today.
YouTube is a video sharing website which allows content creators to upload their own videos, which can then be viewed, rated, commented by other users and people who like the creators of the videos can opt to subscribe to their respective channels. The website is the second most popular website in the internet according to Alexa, and has become the main source for video-related content. Its fame has paved the way for the success of numerous individuals, while corporations, companies and media conglomerates have also made their way onto the website to establish their presence. Videos on the website range from video clips, documentary films, movie trailers, live streams, video blogs, music videos, and many more.
Jev began by posting videos of himself playing the game “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3”, the third installment of the “Modern Warfare” series, following the events of “Modern Warfare 2”. It continues the story of Task Force 141 alongside new playable characters, as they prevent a large scale war from happening instigated by ultranationalists. The video game received a lot of positive reviews, and earned a huge amount of commercial success. He often posted videos of himself playing multiplayer, posting his feats as well as his frustrations.
Faze Clan and Recent Content
As Jev’s channel grew, he was noticed by several members of the gaming organization FaZe Clan, and was invited to join the group. Faze is known for their presence in competitive eSports, having competed in various first person shooter games such as “Call of Duty”, “Fortnite”, and “Counter Strike: Global Offensive”. Original members of the group consist of several YouTube video game content creators who focused on “Call of Duty” video games. Since he already had a significant presence online, he was invited to the arm of the organization which focuses more on entertainment rather than eSports.
Some of the most popular videos on his channel include him reacting to his old videos, especially his rage montages or ragetages as he calls them. He also had a popular series in which he created a character for UFC 2, and shared his journey competing online with his character. In recent months he’s been focused on various popular video games, often playing a variety of them instead of just focusing on one game. Recent videos of him include playing “Rainbow Six Siege”, “Mortal Kombat X”, and “Call of Duty: Black Ops 4”.

Similar to numerous YouTube personalities, he is highly active online through accounts on social media websites.
