Early Life, Parents, and Education

The son of inventor and TV personality Ken Hakuta, and Marilou Chantiller, Justin is of Filipino and Japanese ancestry, and has two brothers, Aki and Kenzo.

Rise to Prominence

Aside from his own enterprises that have become successful, Justin has also been involved in corporate business, working in several companies, and is now serving as the vice-president of products at GoodRx, which in large part has added to his overall net worth. Justin came to prominence when a bunch of his articles were published by Huffington Post, drawing attention to himself and his work.

Determined to succeed from the moment he started his educational process, Justin has many years of hard work behind him. Did it pay off? Well let’s see – according to authoritative sources, Justin Hakuta’s net worth is estimated at over $1.2 million, earned through his successful career. Pretty decent don’t you think? If you are also wondering, Ali Wong’s net worth is as high as $2 million, as of mid- 2018.

First Meeting with Ali Wong

Now a successful businessman, Justin Hakuta and the successful comedian Ali Wong, met in 2010 at a wedding ceremony of their mutual friends. It was Ali who made the first move, as after the two met at a party, he invited Justin to one of her stand-up comedy nights which Justin accepted, and after her performance was over, they almost immediately became a couple.

Wedding Ceremony and First Child

Four years after their fortunate encounter, Justin and Ali held their wedding on the 27th November 2014. The couple welcomed their first child, daughter Mari in November 2015, named after the writer Marie Kondo, best known for authoring “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up”. The Hakuta-Wong family welcomed the newest member in January 2018, also a daughter.

Test Dummy

Justin’s and Ali’s marriage goes beyond romance and small things; he actually helps her choose material for new stand-up routines; Ali would present to him jokes and sketches she has created, and if Justin likes them, then she is good to go. However, although sometimes his say doesn’t mean a thing, Ali still likes to ask her husband for advice.

Internet Fame

Justin isn’t fond of social media networks, and his Twitter account has been inactive since late 2017, and his Instagram page only features his wife’s shows, but Justin became a star through his wife’s popularity. Ali has more than 600,000 followers on her official Instagram page, and some of her posts have become rather popular, including her and Justin together https://www.instagram.com/p/BfeMlC9B-Id/
