If you thought becoming a social media sensation with a vast fan following was a teenager’s forte, think again! While it’s true that we generally associate social media stardom with pretty young things, there are others like Jason Coffee who prove that age is no bar when it comes to online fame! Venturing into the world of social media as a married dad in his thirties, Jason did not take long to take the short-form video hosting service Vine by storm with lively six-second-long looping video clips showcasing his family life. His self-titled Vine account became very popular among the masses—especially young families—and attracted over 900K followers. With his rising popularity as a Vine star, he ventured into Musical.ly (now known as TikTok) as well where he repeated his magic of attracting hordes of followers to his account. When Vine was disabled in late 2016, his fans worried that it would affect Jason Coffee’s fame in some way. However, he got lucky as the subscriber counts on his other social media profiles continued to increase, taking his popularity to newer heights! Today, not only is he highly popular on the TikTok app, but is thriving on YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter as well!
The Meteoric Rise to Stardom
Up until the early 2010s, Jason Coffee was just another normal guy-next-door who lived the routine life of a typical middle-class American man. Married with three kids, he lived a quiet life away from the glam and glitter of the social media world. However, everything was to change in January 2013 when he tentatively stepped into the social media realm by making an account on the newly introduced Vine app. Since he used to work in Starbucks and has been working in the coffee industry since 2002, he chose “Jason Coffee” as his online pseudonym. A devoted family man and a self-professed lover of coffee, he initially made videos that revolved around these two themes. As luck would have it, he soon found himself a niche on Vine where people thronged to see his posts on coffee and enjoy the funny antics of his cute kids. Motivated by the response he got on the app, he worked harder to create more entertaining content for his followers. This worked, and it did not take long for his subscribership to grow to over 900K. Subsequently he ventured into TikTok as well and was met with even bigger success—as of now, he has over 2.1 million fans on TikTok on his ‘jasoncoffee’ account.
