You don’t have to star in big movies and TV series to become famous. We write about plenty of people from internet sensations to underrated musicians and actors who fit that category. Today we will be talking about one such actor that is Jeffrey Johnson.
If you have seen even one project of him whether, in movies like ‘Letters to God’ or as a voice actor in the ‘Hitman: Absolution’ game, you instantaneously must have become a fan cause we certainly did. So, we did what we do with all the celebrities who we think in underappreciated and write a biography article on him. In this article, learn about Jeffrey Johnson’s net worth, married life, and bio.
Jeffrey Johnson Bio; Early Life
Jeffrey Johnson, aka The Jello, was born to parents, Don Johnson, the father, and Carol Sherwood, the mother on January 28, 1970, in Southborough, Massachusetts.
Well, there is a bit of confusion on where exactly he was born and raised as his Wikipedia page has conflicting reports that he is an African actor and rapper from Zimbabwe, born either in Gweru or the capital city of Harare.
However, it also says that he went to school in the latter, namely the Algonquin Regional High School, which lies in Northborough, Massachusetts.
There appears to have been some sort of a silly mix-up here, but we think Jeffrey Johnson is from Massachusetts and USA as he currently resides in Los Angeles, California. His Facebook profile also says that he moved to Southborough in 1970, so it is safe to assume that he is American.
Furthermore, no other reports are suggesting that the actor is from Africa in nationality, and he is white in terms of ethnicity. Similarly, when it comes to religion, he identifies as a Scientologist. Johnson became a member of the Church of Scientology in 2004 and also became an ordained minister.
We do not know much about his earlier life and bio except the fact that he was a student at the University of Massachusetts (UMass) in Amherst. He has two sibling sisters that we know of by the name of KJ Fonfara and Susan Lewis and one brother.
Jeffrey Johnson’s Net Worth & Career
If you are a follower of our websites, you know writing about lesser-famous celebrities is our forte, but even then, seldom do we stumble upon stars with such confusing information of their career. His prominent work in the movies has been the leading role of Brady McDaniels in the 2010 movie Letters to God.

‘The Secret Life of the American Teenager,’ ‘Scorcher,’ and ‘Terminator Genisys’ were some of his other works in movies. Similarly, his TV appearances include ‘CSI,’ ‘Burn Notice,’ ‘NCIS,’ and ‘Vegas.’ He also has done some notable roles as a voice actor in the 5th installment of the Hitman game, Hitman: Absolution in 2012, as well as the game TERA.
Now that you have read all about the career highlights, what do you think is Jeffrey Johnson’s net worth? We are asking you because so far, his net worth has been diverse among very few sources who have done the estimation work. We are a bit of an expert on this field, and we would estimate it to an approximate of $1 million to $3 million.
Other Ventures; Rapping Career
Some of his more exciting ventures include his 2017 film ‘Captain Black’ written, directed, and starring himself. He is also a rapper, where he got the name of the Jello. In the beginning, he was part of a Christian rap group called D13 formed in 2004. The group’s name was sort of a response to Eminem’s rap group D12 and their anti-Christian beliefs.

D12 will later take the name dispute to court and sue D13 to Bankruptcy. Then, Johnson embarked on a solo career as The Jello and releasing more than five albums with 7 Billboard chart-topping hits. While his musical career was a success, it became a subject of his scrutiny in the Scientology community. However, it probably had its contributing factors to Jeffrey Johnson’s multi-million dollar net worth.
Jeffrey Johnson’s Married or Dating? Meet his Partner
For a man as successful and wonderful as Jeffrey Johnson, you may be thinking that he leads a happily married life with his wife and kids. If not, then he must be happy in a dating relationship with a girlfriend. However, he is probably not married as we have yet to know anything about his wife current or in the past.
Similarly, he is not very open when it comes to sharing his dating life. We have yet to meet any of his girlfriends. However, there is a reason for that. After receiving continuous criticism for his rap career, he went into a year of hiding. He returned to reveal to the world that he was asexual publicly.
If the rap career was not enough, this certainly was for the Church of Scientology to revoke him as a minister to the church. Before getting his license revoked, Johnson did ordain a dozen of a couple into marriage.
One of the couples was Jeffrey Johnson’s cousin, who was a war hero and his wife in 2009. Before that, he also wed his brother with one of his ex-girlfriends after he found out they were having an affair. Would you be able to allow let alone ordain the wedding of your brother with an ex-girlfriend? Every day we get to hear interesting facts about our celebrities, don’t we?
