He belongs to the White/Caucasian ethnic group as a result of his British and Irish ancestry. Jacob Hurley Bongiovi is one of the offspring of popular rock legend and leader of the Bon Jovi music group, Jon Bon Jovi (full name: John Francis Bongiovi Jr.) through his marriage to socialite, Dorothea Hurley Bongiovi.
Jacob Hurley Bongiovi spent his formative years in New York where he attended the Poly Prep Country Day School located in Brooklyn. Following his graduation from what was essentially an elementary school,he went on to receive his high school diploma from JB Pennington High School.
At the time of this writing, Jacob Hurley Bongiovi was in the process of bagging a college degree from Syracuse University, also located in New York City. His academic endeavors have provided him with a privilege not uncommon to other celebrity kids.
Jake Has Three Siblings
Jacob Hurley Bongiovi is the second youngest of four children his parents had between 1993 and 2004. His oldest sibling and only sister, Stephanie Rose Bongiovi, was born on May 31, 1993, while his immediate older brother, Jesse James Louis Bongiovi, was born on February 19, 1995.
The youngest of all the Bon Jovi children, and Jake’s younger brother, Romeo Jon Bongiovi, was born on March 29, 2004.
Jake Bongiovi and his siblings are quite close and they support each other the best way they can. He is particularly fond of his older brother, Jesse, who currently oversees the family business, Hampton Water Wine with his friend, Ali Franklin.
His Parents Were High School Sweethearts
Jacob Hurley Bongiovi’s parents became well acquainted with each other when they were both students at Sayreville War Memorial High School in 1980. At the time, his mother, Dorothea Hurley, was dating one of his dad’s close friends named Bobby and this essentially meant that Jacob’s parents were no more than friends.
We can’t be certain when it happened exactly, but the couple started a relationship sometime later. Nine years after their initial meeting, and while on a tour with his music group, Jon Bon Jovi and Dorothea Hurley eloped to Las Vegas and exchanged marital vows at the famous Graceland Chapel.
Jake Bongiovi’s parents celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary in 2019. That was over three years ago and every indication points to the fact that they intend to remain a married couple for the foreseeable future. It’s safe to assume that their marriage has been tested with various challenges but they have remained resolute in appropriately navigating those challenges.
Jacob Hurley Bongiovi Has Aspirations To Being An Actor
Most celebrity kids invariably tow the same career lines as their illustrious parents, but it would appear that Jake Bongiovi harbors no such dreams. His Instagram profile proclaims him an actor, and even though he has no acting credits to his name at the moment, his aspiration to become one in the future is evident from that profile.
Jake Bongiovi has the potential to choose from an array of career paths based on his high school and university activities over the last few years. His athletic abilities enabled him to represent his high school as a football player and occasionally as a soccer player as well, which means that if he decides to earn a living as an athlete, he surely has the tools to at least give it a go.
He has also shown that he can have a future in politics through the walkout protest he organized and led as a student at JB Pennington High School. The protest was against a school shooting in Parkland, Florida.
His active involvement in community projects such as the Soul Kitchen pay-as-you-can restaurants and the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation, both projects pioneered by his father, has revealed a side to him that the media and the public have come to appreciate over time.
Jake Bongiovi still has time to make a decision and is solely focused on completing his studies at the moment. We do know, however, that when he eventually makes the decision, it won’t be to pursue a musical career like his father.
Jake Bongiovi’s Net Worth
Several media outlets have indicated that Jake Bongiovi has a net worth estimated to be around $700k as of 2022 even though he doesn’t have a verifiable source of income at the moment.
Many have speculated, perhaps rightly, that Jon Bon Jovi’s second son receives a substantial allowance from his parents, particularly from his father, who is reportedly worth over $400 million, a net worth he accumulated over the years as a musician and an actor.
He Is In A Relationship With Millie Bobby Brown
It would be best for female admirers of Jake Bongiovi to look away now because, since June 2021, the 20 year-old has been in a romantic relationship with Stranger Things actress, Millie Bobby Brown. For a little while, the existence of their relationship was mere speculation until the actress took to her IG page to confirm it in November 2021.
According to reports, they met through a mutual friend and were spotted holding hands at various locations all over New York City. The couple supports each other unflinchingly. Jake Bongiovi’s dating history is unknown at the moment but we can confirm that he has been dating Millie for over a year now.
