Who is Jessie Paege? Wiki Bio
Jessie Paege was born in New Jersey USA, on 12 March 1999, so her zodiac sign is Pisces and she holds American nationality. She is a YouTuber and a vlogger, well-known for sharing the videos of her everyday life with her fans.
Early life and education
Jessie was raised in New Jersey by her parents – her father is a police officer while her mother is a teacher working at a local elementary school. Jessie has an older brother Matt who is interested in launching a career online as well, while their parents and grandparents are not that understanding when it comes to the internet.
Jessie was adventurous and active while attending high school, as she participated at several sports such as soccer and volleyball, while she began playing the electric guitar at the age of 14. Jessie became very shy during her first years at elementary school, as she felt left out by her peers, and so has become somewhat isolated, however, she still has a couple of close friends, while she is trying to become more sociable with the help of her YouTube channel.
Career as a YouTuber
Jessie launched her YouTube channel on 27 December 2013 at the age of 14, as a way to fight her social anxiety.
She was a huge fan of YouTuber Bethany Mota at the time, and after she attended her ‘Meet and Greet’ event, she learned that Bethany was also a shy girl before starting her career as a YouTuber. This is when she began uploading videos once in a while, and as she was gaining more subscribers, she began uploading more often, and of better quality. Her channel is currently followed by nearly 1.6 million people, while it counts nearly 100 million views combined of all her videos.
Jessie is a special kind of a YouTuber, as she uploads her confessions related to many things, and also does ‘do it yourself’ (DIY) clothes videos, as well as gives advice to those who are suffering from anxiety. Jessie is still fighting with her anxiety, and often cannot stand reading people’s negative comments on her videos, which has led to her de-activating her YouTube channel several times, each time saying that she’s not coming back, but as she actually finds comfort in uploading videos, she always returns to her fans.
Jessie is also an Instagram star, as her account is currently followed by over a million people, while she has uploaded over 1,500 pictures onto it. Many people following her on Instagram have criticized her for stating she will do things which she doesn’t follow through with, such as cutting her hair or travelling, and they’ve accused her of lying to get more fans and followers.
Love life, sexuality, and partner
After feeling comfortable enough to come out of the closet, Jessie addressed her fans in 2016 stating that she was a lesbian.
She has dated several girls, but none of her relationships have lasted longer than three months, however, it appears that she has broken her own record, as she started dating Dani Klekot in the first half of 2019. Dani was born as a boy but felt as a girl, eventually deciding to start behaving as a girl telling ‘her’ parents about it at the age of 12. To her big surprise, her parents were very understanding, and told her how they will support her no matter what, and defend her decision in front of others.
Dani has ventured into the music and the entertainment business.
Jessie and Dani have been dating for nearly a year now. They often upload pictures of themselves together onto their Instagram accounts, while their most popular picture was uploaded on 1 August 2019 on National Girlfriends Day.
