Jon studied at Wyomissing High School and only two years after graduating from this school, Jon met Kate Kreider, his now ex-wife, with whom he has eight children. Their big family soon gained a lot of attention, not only from the local media, but also from the “Discovery Health” channel, which suggested that they film their every-day life, and make a reality show about themselves. In 2007 there was a special episode aired, called “Surviving Sextuplets and Twins”. In 2008 another episode was shown, “Sextuplets and Twins: One Year Later”. These special episodes became quite successful, and had a considerable impact on the growth of Jon Gosselin’s net worth. In 2007 they also created their own reality show, known as “Jon & Kate Plus 8”. The show soon became very popular, and gained a lot of acclaim. It became the main source of Jon Gosselin’s net worth, as it aired until 2011, although Jon and Kate decided to divorce in 2009. Despite this fact, the show continued airing, now named “Kate Plus 8”, and Jon still sometimes appeared on it. According to Jon it was Kate’s decision to divorce, but later it became clear that Jon had an affair with another woman.
After Jon stopped appearing on the show, he had to find other activities in order to support himself and his family. In 2011 he started working at the company called “Green Pointe Energy”, from which he earned a modest salary installing solar panels. Two years later he began working as a waiter, which at least added something to Jon’s net worth. After some time, Jon became the head waiter and gained more money from this job.
What is more, Jon is one of the writers of the book, called “Multiple Blessings: Surviving to Thriving with Twins and Sextuplets”. The book soon became very popular and added a lot to Jon’s net worth.
There is little about Jon’s life that is private, indeed his “public socialising with other women”, as he puts it, was the reason for the divorce proceedings. Jon is now virtually bankrupt, and allegedly is so unreliable that the jobs he has secured since the end of their TV show have been short-lived. He now lives in an apartment so small that his children can only visit, and supporting them financially is extremely difficult.
