Donnie Yen’s kids are three, namely Man-Zeok Yen aka Jeff Yen, Jasmine Yen, and James Yen. All of Donnie Yen’s children are from two different relationships.
Man-Zeok Yen was born to Donnie and his first wife, Leung Zing Ci, at the end of their marriage, which barely lasted one year. Donnie Yen’s last two kids are products of his current marriage to former model and beauty pageant Cissy Wang. Every member of the Yen brood seems to be set on different career paths. While Jeff is working in the corporate world as an assistant manager, Jasmine is thriving as a singer, songwriter, and dancer. The baby of the family, James, is creating a niche for himself on social media, and he can play the piano.
Man-Zeok Yen, aka Jeff Yen, is Donnie Yen’s Oldest Child
- Date of birth: 1995
- Age: 29 years old
- Mother: Leung Zing Ci
Donnie Yen has two sons, and the first of them is Man-Zeok Yen, his first child. Also known as Jeff Yen, he was born in China in 1995. Man-Zeok is obviously Chinese by nationality but comes from a mixed ethnic background.
Jeff’s mum has been identified as Leung Zing Ci, who works and earns a living as an advertising executive. According to reports, Donnie Yen and Leung Zing Ci got married in 1992, but unfortunately, their union ended within one year. It was while they were finalizing their divorce that Leung Zing Ci discovered she was pregnant and sought custody from the court.
Reports said both parents got joint custody, but Leung Zing Ci thwarted Donnie’s effort to visit their son despite his visitation right.
When Jeff was 18 in 2013, he suffered from pneumothorax which led to his hospitalization and lung surgery, and according to reports, Donnie never went to visit him even after his ex-wife called begging him to try.
Donnie’s neglect of his ailing son triggered a lot of negative press about him, and many already concluded that they didn’t share a great father/son relationship until the Father’s Day celebration of 2018, when the actor shared a picture with his complete brood.

Growing up in Hong Kong, Donnie Yen’s first son attended La Salle College, where he accomplished his High School Diploma.

Currently, he is a staff of HK Express Airline Retail department, where he works in his capacity as an Assistant Manager. He started with the firm in 2018 as a Graduate Trainee and worked his way up the ladder to become a Product Development Specialist in 2020. Jeff maintained this position for two years, and in 2022 he rose to his current post.
