About CouRage JD
Birthdate: April 24, 1994
Birthplace: New Jersey, United States
Occupation: pro-gamer, streamer, and Youtuber
Jack Dunlop was born on April 24, 1994, in New Jersey, USA. Today, he’s known as pro-gamer CouRage JD to millions of people all over the world. Before fully focusing on his gaming career, he completed his degree in Electronic Media and Film at Towson University in Maryland. The immense amount of success he has found in the gaming industry all started with an Xbox. During his middle school and high school years, he spent a lot of time playing “Halo” and “Call of Duty”.
It was in 2007 when CouRage JD first got into eSports. He started watching matches for “Halo” and “Call of Duty”, some of which gamer Chris Puckett was a part of. CouRage JD began following his career and even ended up befriending Chris after meeting him at events.
In 2014, he got an internship at the Major League Gaming Corp., where he mostly did background support at events. While working at MLG, he was suddenly chosen to host one of their daily live shows after his friend, Chris Puckett, felt unwell. The company was so impressed by his work that he was asked to co-host for the next six weeks. This led to CouRage JD hosting and casting a bunch of major “Call of Duty” eSports events, like the Call of Duty World League Championships from 2016 to 2018, the MLG Pro League tournaments from 2014 to 2016, and the UMG tournaments from 2015 to 2016.
From 2015 to 2017, CouRage JD also hosted “Halo” and “World of Warcraft” events. Soon after, he launched his YouTube and Twitch channels, on which he quickly gained millions of followers. While focusing on casting, he balanced streaming gameplays on his channels at the same time. He decided to pursue streaming full-time in 2018.
2019 ended up being another huge year for CouRage JD, as he participated in and cast the Fortnite World Cup. He also was paired up with Panic At The Disco’s Brendan Urie at the Fortnite Pro-Am 2019. This was the same year he officially became a member and content creator of the eSports team “100 Thieves”. 2019 saw CouRage JD make the big switch from Twitch to streaming exclusively on Youtube.
When CouRage JD isn’t busy gaming or hosting, you’ll find him making random viral videos on Youtube. One of these would be his parody video of “Boyfriend” by Ariana Grande. The pop-star even appeared in this video, and the two eventually formed an adorable friendship! That friendship was solidified when he made an appearance in Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber’s music video for “Stuck With U” in 2020. CouRage JD isn’t just making waves in the gaming world; he’s got some Hollywood credits up his sleeve too.
In 2020, CouRage JD used his platform to raise money for COVID-19 relief. The gamer held a 12-hour charity birthday stream that raised more than $500,000, which he donated to the CDC. With his massive impact on the community, CouRage JD redefines what it means to be a gaming influencer.
