Who is Jason Simpson?
Jason Lamar Simpson was born in the USA, on 21 April 1970 – his zodiac sign is Taurus, and he holds American nationality. He prefers to stay away from the media’s attention and hasn’t spoken about his profession, so he’s probably only known for being a son of O.J. Simpson, a former Football Player, actor and broadcaster.
Early life and education
Jason was raised in Los Angeles, California alongside his sisters Arnelle L. and Aaren Lashone Simpson, by their father, and their mother Marguerite L. Whitley; Aaren was only two years old when in August 1979, she fell into a swimming pool and drowned.
OJ began having an affair with waitress Nicole Brown in 1977, which led to his divorce from Marguerite in March 1979; he married Nicole on 2 February 1985, and she gave birth to their daughter Sydney Brooke Simpson in the same year, and their son Justin Ryan Simpson followed in 1988; however, their divorce was finalized in 1992.
Jason grew up being interested in a variety of sports, while he and his sister Arnelle were kept away from the media’s attention by their parents. Looking up to his father, he began playing football while attending a local high school, but soon realized that he was more passionate about other sports, such as running track and throwing the discus.
Jason matriculated in 1988, and while he hasn’t spoken of his further education, some of his father’s fans believe that he attended college, from which he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in 1992.
Jason hasn’t shared any details concerning his career with the public, but it’s widely believed that he’s today a sportsman, and is a professional discus thrower, although he hasn’t hit any headlines.
Love life and girlfriend
Jason’s highly secretive when it comes to sharing the details of his love life with his fans, which is probably the main reason why there are today rumors circulating the internet, concerning both his marital status and sexual orientation.
Many of Jason’s fans believe that he’s today a married man, while one has even claimed to have seen him walking in the streets of Los Angeles with his wife and (presumably) their two children; no evidence has been provided to support these claims, nor has Jason addressed the matter.
There are also those who think that he’s perhaps gay, and that this is why he hasn’t spoken of the women whom he has been with, but this hasn’t been confirmed either.
As of May 2022, Jason seems to be unattached, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
Hobbies and other interests
Jason’s still quite physically quite active today, and has multiple training sessions at the gym every week, while he’s also into playing various sports with his friends, as well as hiking and rock climbing.
He likes to travel, and has been to various US states for both work and pleasure, while it’s said that Jason has also been to a couple of European cities, including London in England and Venice, Italy.
He’s a huge lover of animals, with his favorites being bears and mountain lions; he has a pet dog.
Jason is quite active on Instagram, and is today followed by close to 1,000 people, while he’s uploaded more than 150 pictures onto the network.
He enjoys watching movies in his spare time – his favorite actor is Will Smith, while a couple of his favorite films include “Independence Day”, “Bad Boys” and “I Am Legend”.
Age, height and net worth
Jason’s age is 52. He has long black hair and brown eyes, his height is 5ft 7ins (1.7m) and he weighs around 145lbs (65kgs).
As of May 2022, his net worth stands at over $200,000, while his father’s net worth has been estimated at more than $3 million.
Who is his father OJ Simpson?
Orenthal James ‘O.J.’ Simpson was born in San Francisco, California, on 9 July 1947 – his zodiac sign is Cancer, and he holds American nationality. Although he was once a highly successful American Football Player, OJ remains known best for having stood trial for the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Simpson, and her friend Ronald Lyle ‘Ron’ Goldman.
OJ was raised in San Francisco alongside his siblings Melvin Leon, Shirley and Carmelita, by their father Jimmy Lee Simpson who was a bank custodian and chef, and their mother Eunice (nee Durden) who was a hospital administrator; Jimmy was also a popular drag queen, and eventually revealed to his family that he was gay; he died from AIDS in 1986.
OJ joined the street gang Persian Warriors in his teenage years, and once served time at the San Francisco Youth Guidance Center, having been arrested three times between 1958 and 1968. OJ studied at Galileo High School, and upon matriculating in 1965, enrolled at City College of San Francisco, where he played football for their team which went on to win the Prune Bowl when they beat Long Beach State. Many colleges then became interested in OJ, and he chose to transfer to the University of Southern California; he held a national football rushing record in both 1967 and 1968. He graduated in 1968, and in the same year won a Walter Camp Award, Maxwell Award and the Heisman Trophy.
OJ was picked by the Buffalo Bills in the 1969 National Football League (NFL) draft – he had asked for $650,000 over five years, which was the largest contract in the history of the sport, but the team’s owner Ralph Wilson agreed to OJ’s terms after he’d threatened to leave football behind him and become an actor.
He struggled during his first four years there, but his contract was still extended in 1974; OJ was traded to the San Francisco 49ers in 1978, and retired from football on 16 December 1979.
He’s also an actor, and appeared in an episode of the drama series “Medical Center” in 1969; he could then have been seen playing supporting characters in the 1977 mini-series “Roots”, the 1978 thriller movie “Capricorn One”, and the 1987 comedy movie “Back to the Beach”. It has also been revealed that OJ was considered to play the main character in the 1984 science fiction action movie “The Terminator”, but Arnold Schwarzenegger was chosen instead.
OJ’s former wife Nicole Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman were found stabbed to death on 12 June 1994, and while OJ was a person of interest, he failed to turn himself in, and was then involved in a low-speed police pursuit on 17 June. He was then trialed for 11 months, and was found not guilty on 3 October 1995, but the family of Ron Goldman then filed a civil lawsuit against OJ, and he was found liable for Ron’s wrongful death, and was ordered to pay close to $35 million to the Goldman family.
On 5 December 2008, OJ was sentenced to spend 33 years behind bars after having been found guilty of armed robbery and kidnapping; he and several other men had broken into a room at the hotel-casino Palace Station a year earlier, held employees at gunpoint, and stole sports memorabilia. OJ was released on parole on 1 October 2017, and then from parole on 14 December 2021.
