One of the most interesting facts about his youth was that he was a member of a lacrosse team in his high school which was peculiar since he was an African-American.

After Vine closed down, Jerry tried to find a way to keep in touch with his fans and keep his business/pleasure alive.
He turned to the most obvious social platform called Youtube which was at that point started to be the new hottest video platform.
After his great impersonations of Lil Wayne he was soon at the top of Youtube most viewed list.
