His apparent favorite part in YGS 100 was "ay yo boi" judging from his comment "1 year ago today!! Thanks to everyone who's watched any or all of it! Anyone got a favorite bit? I kinda like 'ay yo boi'" on the video.

He used to live in Maryland, but moved to Los Angeles in October 2010, where he currently resides, to get closer to his YouTube colleagues. This was confirmed when Jack put up a video announcing his move, as well as a series of travel vlogs that would accompany it.
He is engaged to Erin, and they have been together for 4 years. He proposed on their 4-year anniversary at the bar where they met. As of August 7th, 2013, Jack was placed in a hospital due to severe abdominal pains. This forced him to stop uploading at the time which resulted in the postponement of 56th episode of YGS.

- All I Want For Christmas Is A Girlfriend - In December 2007, Jack uploaded a holiday-themed song about how much he wants a girlfriend as a Christmas present, as he feels isolated and despairing about still being single and lonley, incase you can't tell. This song showed off his ukelele skills during his solo, with his pink ukelele in the shape of a small Gibson Flying V.
- Jack City Bich - In April of 2012, Jack uploaded a very short song that mainly epitomized his work and experiences on YouTube, mentioning lots of people that are and aren't in his videos. Auto-Tune Jesus also made a short appearance in the song as well. With 22 uses of the word "bich", this is the song which bears the most uses of the word let alone in 1:50 or less.
