Early life, family, educational background
Jessica Clements was born on 31 December 1993, in Boston, Massachusetts USA. She has a self-titled YouTube channel on which she posts videos about hair, beauty and fashion. She is also a model, and is represented by Elite Model Management. She has a younger brother by the name of Andrew Clements, who is currently studying in Boston where he lives with their parents. Jessica moved to New York and still lives there due to her modeling career.
When she was young, she took classes in gymnastics and ballet, and her mother encouraged her to continue to dance, and try acting. When Jessica found a passion for modeling, her mother was her biggest supporter. Before dedicating her life to becoming a model, Jessica was home-schooled.
By the time that Jessica started her YouTube channel, she was already modeling in Boston, MA. She has also modeled in Los Angeles, Miami and New York City. Her first modeling job was with “Newbury Street-based Maggie Inc.” She worked with them for a while and then moved to a more well-known agency in New York, lite Model Management – working for Aerie was her first ‘big’ campaign.
She started her eponymous YouTube channel on 3 September 2011, but only started posting in 2015. Her videos generally do not exceed 15 minutes, and they are focused on style lookbooks, clothing hauls and make-up. Some of her most popular videos include “Winter Everyday Natural Makeup Tutorial 2017,” “Natural Defined Instagram Makeup” and “Single-Eyeshadow Everyday Makeup Tutorial.” She films her videos at home, using either her Canon 70D camera, her Canon G7x camera or her iPhone; she also uses a ring light and tripod.
She enjoys fans sharing how her videos have inspired and helped them.
For her, the biggest reward for what she does is knowing that she has improved people’s lives. She has received minor roles in several movies. In 2011 she appeared in “Infested Ship,” a short horror film about four friends who break into a haunted ship and encounter the undead; on IMDb, the short film received a rating of 7.2/10. In 2012, she appeared in the horror film, “The Devil’s Nightmare” which received a rating of 6.7/10 on IMDb. She also appeared in the short drama film “Real Estate” in 2019, which follows a young man who is a realtor hoping to become a successful businessman; the film received a 5.7/10 rating on IMDb.
She has started two companies – one is a consultancy agency focused on advertising, digital brand development and fashion, and the other a personal investment company focused on digital technology platforms. Her favorite professional project is her ambassadorship with Chanel Beauty. From a young age, she had a deep love and appreciation for Coco Chanel and has always dreamt of working with them. She encourages her fans to never lose themselves in what they do and to always keep their most cherished things private.
In 2012, Jessica began dating fellow YouTuber Erik Conover, after they met at a modeling job.
Jessica was featured on Erik’s YouTube channel a few times before they broke up in 2016. Aside from Erik, she keeps all aspects of her romantic life private, and has advised her fans to keep their personal lives private too, so that negative influences and rumors can be avoided. In 2019, a 40-year-old man sent Jessica a photo of himself standing in the lobby of her old apartment building; he was arrested and charged with stalking. According to Page Six, the man said that he was able to find her old apartment by watching her YouTube videos and eventually piecing the location together.
Page Six went on to say that Jessica’s manager, Max Hirsch, got in touch with the man and warned him to ‘leave her alone and not contact her in any way.’ Max said that the man’s reply contained a death threat. The man was charged with a misdemeanor and released on his recognizance, and Jessica was granted a protection order which bans the man from contacting or approaching her. She also moved out of her apartment.
Hobbies, favorite things and interesting facts
Jessica has a pet parrot, whom she named Picasso. Growing up, her family always had birds in the house and Jessica would go to the pet store to buy toys and food for the birds.
On one visit, she fell in love with an Amazon parrot, but the parrot was already purchased by the time that her family was ready for another bird. Just like a fairytale, Picasso found his way to Jessica – the owners heard of Jessica’s parents having a shelter for “problem birds” and brought Picasso to them. According to Jessica and her family, the previous owners did not treat Picasso well, and he developed disobedient behavior. The story has a happy ending, because Jessica and Picasso were instant best friends.
She has said that whenever she visits her family, her father always plays her YouTube videos on their home television and exclaims, ‘Look who’s on TV!’
People often confuse her with British actress and television presenter, Jessica-Jane Clements, who is eight years older. Her favorite food is carbonara and bolognese, and she has dropped coffee from her diet.
She has brown hair and blue eyes. She is 5ft 10in (1.78m) tall, weighs about 132lbs (60kgs), and her vital statistics are 32-24-35 (81-61-89).

As of early 2020, Jessica’s net worth is estimated at over $1 million. She makes her money from modeling gigs, her YouTube channel and her two companies.
