Jaleel White Net Worth, Wiki & Biography in 2017

Jaleel Ahmad White was born On 27 November 1976, in Culver City, California USA, the son of a dentist father (Michael) and homemaker mother (Gail) who later managed him professionally. He is a well-known actor, television personality and producer., perhaps best known for appearing in such movies and shows as “Dreamgirls”, “Family Matter”, “Total Blackout” and others. During his career, White has been nominated for and has won various awards. Some of them include, Young Artists Award, NAACP Image Award, Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Award and others. Jaleel continues his career and there is no doubt that he will gain even more awards and nominations in the future. As he has been working in the television and movie industries for quite a long time, he is known, respected and recognized among others. Let’s hope that White will continue his career and his fans will be able to enjoy his projects.

Jaleel White Net Worth $10 Million

So how rich is Jaleel White? Sources have estimated that Jaleel’s net worth is $10 million, the main source of which has been his appearances in different television shows and movies. His activities as a producer and screenwriter have also added to his net worth. If Jaleel continues his successful work, there is a high chance that he will become more acclaimed not only as an actor but as a producer as well. In this case, White’s net worth should also become higher.

When Jaleel was very young, he started appearing in TV commercials, and later he was encouraged to focus on acting by one of his teachers, so that is how his career began. In 1984 Jaleel got one of his first roles in the television show called “The Jeffersons”. Although this role was minor, it still made his net worth grow and helped him to gain more experience in acting. Later he had a role in the show called “Charlie and Company”, but as the show was not very successful, it was cancelled in 1986. After that there were other shows that cast Jaleel for minor roles, but his huge break came when he was 12 years old and was cast in a role in the popular show entitled “Family Matters”. During the making of this show, White worked with such actors as Jo Marie Payton, Telma Hopkins, Jaimee Foxworth, Michelle Thomas and others. This show was one of the main sources of Jaleel White’s net worth. The show ended in 1998, and after 10 years of acting in it, Jaleel was really bored, but he can only agree that this show made him more popular and brought him fame.

Other shows and movies that Jaleel has appeared in include, “Big Fat Liar”, “Kissing Cousins”, “Green Flash”, “Full House”, “CSI; Crime Scene Investigation” and others. In 2012, he joined the cast of Dancing With the Stars and became the host of Total Blackout. All these appearances also added to White’s net worth.

To talk about Jaleel White’s personal life, not much can be said. He has one daughter with Bridget Hardy, but nothing else is known about his love relationships. Finally, Jaleel White is a talented personality, who has been working in television and movie industries for a long period of time and now he tries to become known not only as an actor, but as a producer as well. Let’s hope that he will gain even more fans and that soon we will be able to see him appearing in new television shows and movies.

#Quote
1[1999, on his role as Steve Urkel on Family Matters (1989)] If you ever see me do that character again, take me out and put a bullet in my head and put me out of my misery.
2I've been in this business 31 years. I've never had a movie deal.
3Writing is still on my slate.
4You have to be respectful of pop culture, because people interpret it in the way they want.
5You need fans in high places, I always tell people. I don't care how talented you are.
6The conventions of an almighty agency tapping you for greatness and signing you up and telling you this is going to be the next big thing; that has not been my career.
