Jonathan Aryan Jafari was born on 24th March 1990. He was born and raised in a family of a Hungarian mother and an Iranian father in Rancho Palos Verdes, California, United States. For education, he went to Palos Verdes Peninsula Highschool.
Even Though Jafari spent most of his time in California, in 2013 he moved to New York with his girlfriend. Finally, on 23rd October 2019, Jafari took the biggest step in his life when he got married to Charlotte Claw.
Jafari made his career’s first step in 2003 when he created an account in Newgrounds under the pseudonym “BirdmanXZ6” and uploaded five animations there. Using the same name, he opened a YouTube account in 2006. In 2010 he started uploading game reviews on Screwattack.com.
In the same year in the month of August, he opened his famous youtube channel JonTronShow. This time he went by the name JonTron as it was “reminiscent of technology”. On the first installment of the JonTron series, he uploaded a review on Nintendo 64 version of the game Daikatana in two parts. Late on he used this channel mostly to review games in a humorous manner.
After receiving noteworthy compliments in his prime channel, he went on to create two more Lets PLay channels. One was “JonTronStarcraft” where he streamed Blizzard Entertainment’s most popular game Starcraft and the other one “JonTronLoL” where he uploaded his own playthrough of League of Legends.
However, in recent times, Jafari’s activity has trimmed down significantly. With a wide range of games available, and a large number of YouTubers competing to portray their gameplays more attractively in recent times, Jafari has faced a crucial cut down in the number of his target audiences.
JonTron has a tendency to take long breaks from his work. His slow and irregular upload pattern along with minimum social contact has made him unable to meet production schedules. Recently, his tendency to delay has skyrocketed since he was on hiatus for 18 months in 2017 and 2018.
Jon’s departure from Game Grumps has led fans and followers to assume it as an unprecedented and abrupt event. From then on, fans have assumed a fracture in the relationship between Jafari and Arin. However, evidence of Jon and Arin hanging out together has emerged on social platforms recently. They have photos taken together at MAGfest 13, besides they are still friends on a Reddit AMA, as confirmed by Ross.
