Jerry joined YouTube under his current persona on December 2, 2012. His previous channel, ultrachance850, was removed due to copyright complaints. With his second chance on YouTube, Jerry has chosen to make all original content, doing all he can to prevent copyright issues.
His first video, according to his channel, is a Gangnam Style parody titled "Mr. Heinzman Style" which Jerry made for a school project his sophomore year in high school.
Jerry calls himself "The Mathlete" on a couple of reasons. Firstly is that when he was in high school, during his senior year. he called himself "a dual-threat" due to his participation in athletic and academics. He played Offensive Guard and Defensive Tackle in high school, despite being only 5'-10" and weighing 180 pounds his senior year. He was also co-captain of the varsity quiz-bowl team his senior year and was specialized in mathematics. Jerry also competed in literary rally each year he was in high school for mathematic, placing in district 3 of 4 years (winning twice), and placing 2nd in the state in Pre-Calculus and Calculus his junior and senior years, respectively.
Jerry graduated high school a year early, at age 16, earning salutatorian honors at his graduation. He currently attends college at Nicholls State University, entering with a full semester's worth of earned credits, which placed him ahead a large portion of the entering freshman class. Jerry is currently pursuing a double-major in Computer Information Systems and Business Administration and states that he maintains a 4.0 grade point average.
Mentioned in his video titled "LiveStreaming 101: Good Quality = Good Stream", Jerry is part of a smaller channel with a few of his friends from high school called GamerPalooza, which is more active on Twitch.TV compared to their YouTube channel.
Jerry is also credited by YouTuber Ice Master Gabe in a video for sending him several unusual items in the mail, including an unopened Roy Amiibo, Articuno from the Pokemon TCG Fossil Set, a couple Carolina Reapers, and a signed picture of himself that reads, "This will be worth $$$ someday..."
A numerous amount of times on his Twitch streams, Jerry has said he is single and heterosexual, and never having a prior relationship. On his Google+ Profile Jerry also states that he is looking for "Friends, Dating, A Relationship" which further prove this.
Jerry has made his own official website, which he calls Mathlete Nation. It is a WordPress site made entirely by him, which has blog posts, and also plans on programming online games to be played on the website. He also has his own gaming forums site called the Mathlete Forums, contained within the same domain as his main site. He also solely created the official GamerPalooza website as well, but is the least active of the three sites.
Jerry is also responsible for creating The United Trainers League, or UTL, for short, which is a Pokemon community and league, which as Jerry says "goal is to unite trainers at the local area with a numerours amount of individual state forums sites". Alongside with individual state forums, the UTL also has a nation-wide forums.
- According to his own channel banner, Jerry refers to his subscriber base as the "#MathleteNation" which is a hashtag which would most commonly be used on Twitter. However, at the time of this adoption he did not have a Twitter account. This was not until August 2017 he would join the network.
- As seen in the SocialBlade video interview and "#RunRichRun - #MathleteNation Style", Jerry has his own "#MathleteNation" shirt that he wears from time to time. The shirt shows the text "MATHLETES" on the front in an italicized font along with a giant Pi Symbol on the bottom; on the back, the shirt reads "#MathleteNation" on the back in the same font as the front text. The shirt was hand-decorated by him, using hand-cut stencils and T-shirt spray paint.
