He was born on July 5, 1995 in the city of Oahu in Hawaii. This island, the third largest in Hawaii is also known as “The Gathering Place” and is beautiful to live on.
There isn’t much information about him or his childhood but it is known that he grew near the ocean and quit school when he was only 14 years old. He wasn’t interested in it. He used to spend a lot of his time outside, playing and riding waves on the beautiful ocean.
He was a rebel at that period and didn’t want to continue his further education. Instead he decided to get himself a tattoo “Let’s live” inside his lip and try to find himself another career. He eventually decided that he will try to use his looks in order to become famous.
He was in a very fragile teenage period when his mother died from cancer. He was just 16 at the time and he had to find a way to cope with such a tragicall event. His mother loved him very much and left him a letter in which she repeated how much she loves him and going to miss him. The feelings were mutual so Jerry was heartbroken after she died.
He needed a lot of time to get over it for he was living in a hope she would live longer. His tattoo came very soon after his mother’s death so it is kind of a memory of her and her love for life.
His life wasn’t easy since in financial sense since he wasn’t brought up in a rich home but he found a way to buy himself a camera and decided to make a career in photography. He had to plan a lot too.
He started making his name in that branch and he used a social platform called Vine to try to make his break through. Bryant Eslava, a world famous photographer, is one of his best friends from that period. They are still good friends today.
