In the field of car races, JJ has a very long career, spanning almost three decades.
He came in the limelight from Street Outlaws, an American reality television series on the Discovery Channel.
So let’s race together in the detail of JJ Da Boss life.
Da Boss was on August 10, 1973, in St Joseph Hospital of Memphis, United States. JJ Da Boss birth name is Jonathon Day. He grew up in a small town in Arkansas called Joiner and graduated from Rivercrest High School in 1992.
JJ Da Boss comes from the family of roofers, and he too spent the first 20 years of his life doing so.
He was passionate about cars since his childhood so he would roof and spend all his money to fix an old car. Most of the times he wouldn’t have the funds to complete the parts at the race track, so he started street racing.
After completing his jail sentence, he came home and had a plan to get together. So he started something he loved, buying old cars and fixing them up and selling them.
He modified his first race car “66” CHEVY II NOVA by getting a 402 big block engine out of an old Bob truck and installing it in his car.
Most of the times he wouldn’t have the money to complete the parts at the race track, so he started street racing. His team comprises of 4 members.
JJ Da Boss had a wedding with fellow street driver Tricia Day. His wife is known for her nickname as ‘Midget.’
Though the Street Outlaws star has 11 (yes, you read it right) children and five grandchildren (quite a family, huh!), Tracy is not the mother of all of his kids.
He remains especially private when it comes to providing the insight of his previous love life and the mothers of his children.
There was a rumor that Da Boss is having an affair with Precious Cooper, who is a team member of his, also grew up with Tricia as a life-long friend.
In an interview with Monsters and Critics, he clearly said,
” Precious, her family always loved street racing. I love street racing. She grew up with my wife, Tricia. She helps take care of all of my bills, and helps me as much as I help her. It’s just kind of neutral respect. Nothing crazy. Nothing un-morally.”
Celebrities always find a way to tangle themselves in controversy by some offense. Either it is getting drunk or some drug issues, celebs get in the hands of the law. Most of the celebrity cause trouble during their teenage or due to the difficult time growing up.

Growing up on the streets, he hustled money using less than savory means. He would gamble for extra cash at a young age.
