McLoughlin was born in the Irish county of Offaly on February 7, 1990. He is the youngest of John and Florrie McLoughlin’s five children. After a childhood eye injury from a football game, he was given the nickname “Jack Septic Eye.”
He went to Limerick Institute of Technology to study music technology and production before dropping out. Sean became the drummer for Raised to the Ground, a melodic death metal-influenced band.
Before moving to Brighton, England, he lived in an apartment in Athlone, county Westmeath. There, he completed a Bachelor of Arts degree in hotel management at Athlone Institute of Technology.
Under the handle “jacksepticeye,” Sean created a YouTube channel in 2012. He started by doing voice impressions before moving on to making gameplay videos. His big break came in 2013 when he was featured in a PewDiePie video. He and Felix have built a good relationship from there.
Jacksepticeye was sure to make the most of the situation. He maintained his consistency, and the channel had one billion by February 2015. He proceeded to upload two videos every day and collaborated with other YouTubers on a regular basis.
In 2022, Sean has amassed 28 million subscribers. Despite his enormous fame, Jack acknowledges that he avoids using terms like “celebrity” or “famous” because they make him awkward.
In October 2018, McLoughlin released a video unveiling Cloak, a gaming-themed apparel line he co-founded with Markiplier. In conjunction with major franchises and internet stars, the company has launched limited-edition collections.
He announced on June 15, 2020, that he was going to launch his own coffee company, Top of The Mornin’ Coffee, and that pre-orders would begin on the same day.

Sean has also earned income from deals he made in the past. He agreed to generate exclusive content for Twitch as part of a multi-year partnership with Disney’s Digital Network. Lastly, Endeavor Group Holdings, Inc. signed him back in 2019.
Jacksepticeye shares a fair amount of personal information about him with his community. For example, in early February 2021, he stated that his father passed away. Thus, he needed to take a break from making content. He returned at the end of the month.
Regarding his love life, he is currently in a relationship with Gab Smolders. She is a 33-year-old woman who shares similar interests with Sean as a gamer and YouTuber.
