Early Life and Education

Seán McLoughlin was born on February 7, 1990 in Ballinasloe, Ireland as the youngest of five children of Florrie and John. He was raised in Cloghan and also lived for a while in Banagher. McLoughlin started getting into video games when he was seven, and was particularly fond of the Nintendo Game Boy. As a child, he earned the nickname "Jack Septic Eye" after he sustained an eye injury during a football game. When he was 18, he moved with his family to a cabin in Ballycumber. McLoughlin soon moved to Limerick to study at the Limerick Institute of Technology. In his third year there, he decided to drop out and return to Ballycumber. After that, McLoughlin moved to Athlone, where he studied hotel management at the Athlone Institute of Technology. In 2009, with a metalcore band called Raised to the Ground, he released the EP "Risen from the Ashes."

Internet Career

McLoughlin launched his YouTube channel, jacksepticeye, in late 2012. Originally uploading voice impressions, he eventually transitioned to creating gameplay content and vlogs. After being mentioned in a video by popular YouTuber PewDiePie in 2013, McLoughlin saw his subscriber numbers more than quadruple in just four days. By the spring of 2014, he was able to make his channel his full-time job. That August, McLoughlin reached one million subscribers, and by early the next year, he had amassed over three million subscribers. In 2016, he was among the initial YouTubers signed to Revelmode, the multichannel network of PewDiePie. The network was eventually shut down after PewDiePie used anti-Semitic imagery on his channel, and McLoughlin subsequently signed with the Disney Digital Network. In early 2018, it was announced that he would create exclusive content for the livestreaming platform Twitch as part of a multi-year deal with the Disney Digital Network. The following year, McLoughlin signed with the talent agency WME and the multichannel network Studio71.

In the summer of 2021, McLoughlin uploaded a short film to his YouTube channel called "15 Months," which he wrote, directed, edited, and starred in. The film explores his time spent during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Also that year, McLoughlin signed with the talent agency CAA. In 2022, he wrote and directed another short film, "Anomaly Found – Chase Brody," in which he starred as the titular character. McLoughlin was also the subject of the biographical documentary "How Did We Get Here?," which covers his life from his childhood to his successful YouTube career. By June of 2023, his YouTube channel had reached over 30 million subscribers and more than 16 billion total views. Beyond YouTube, McLoughlin also creates TikTok videos, and in 2023 started the podcast "Brain Leak" with fellow YouTuber Ethan Nestor.
