An online sensation, YouTuber Jonathan Saccone-Joly is best known for his family channel SacconeJoly, where he documents his family life. A father of four, he often features his children Andrea, Alessia, Eduardo, Emilia, as well as his wife Anna, in his vlogs. An Irish YouTuber based in London, he first joined the video-sharing platform at the end of 2009.
As of early 2019, his videos have earned him over 1.9 million subscribers on YouTube, with more than 100 million views altogether. Currently, some of his most popular uploads include Lives Changed Forever, Everything Happens for a Reason, Swimming in the Rain, and Truth About the Baby. If anything, the beloved YouTube family has only increased in fame in the last year. In 2017 alone, they had received more than 200,000 new subscribers.
You want to know Jonathan and his family’s net worth, right? That’s why you’re here!
Well, our sources have revealed, their approximate value currently stands at $1.2 million! How much of this fortune came directly from their family vlogs and comedic videos? Do they have any other projects in the pipeline? Let’s take a look below.
Jonathan was born on February 13, 1980, in Ireland. He grew up with three siblings, Leah, Simon, and Ruth.
It was at the end of the 2000s that he started to make videos on YouTube. He initially helped Anna, his then-girlfriend with her beauty channel in 2008; it wasn’t until the next year, that he decided to set up his channel.
After creating his channel, he decided to do an experiment – to film and share his life every day for one whole week. Before he knew it, the one week experiment had turned into a new lifestyle. Till date, he regularly shares his family’s lives with viewers on the site, from life-changing moments to comedic videos. At the end of 2018, his work had gained him nearly 2 million subscribers, with more than 800 million combined views.
His most viewed video, Lives Changed Forever has generated over 4.7 million hits on YouTube. Some of his other most-watched videos include Meet the SacconeJolys, We Built a Water Park, Swimming In The Rain and We’ve Got Some News, all of which have gotten millions of views.
Let’s assume that they received around $5 per 1,000 ad views, the fact that they have over 800 million views would translate to earnings of nearly $1.4 million (before Google’s cut).
In addition to their main family channel, the Youtuber also has his channel under the name, JonathanJoly (which is currently not being used). Although it’s not as popular as the former per se, he has garnered over 375,000 subscribers to date with more than 24.5 million views altogether. Since the videos on the second account have been monetized, he must receive another steady flow of income from the said account.
