Born in Los Angeles, California, he always stood out for being a great athlete. His parents, Willie Mae Johnson and Javis Johnson, were his biggest fans and supporters since he was young. In his high school days, Jamal played Division 1 collegiate athletics. Initially, he had dreams of becoming a professional athlete. At the height of 6 ft. 4, this towering star had what it takes to dominate the sports industry, but life seemed to have other bigger and better plans for him.
While his passion was focused more on sports in high school, being an athlete himself, college brought him other opportunities. After earning his Bachelor of Arts in Communications, Jamal proceeded to study theatre at the prestigious American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York. He then began to star in student films, and eventually, after meeting the person who would become his manager, he was later featured in several local commercials. Jamal also ventured into doing voice-overs. Since then, he has developed his passion for performing arts, especially in theatre. He continues to star in commercials and has even turned to act, taking on both support and lead actor roles.
Recently, Jamal received much attention for his performance when he took on the role of Devon in one of the most notable SAG-featured and Amazon Prime film drama, "2 Wrongs". In 2019, he also featured in cooking shows, audio casts, as well as other films set to come to theaters in 2020.
Working with Jamal is always a pleasure for casting directors, producers, writers, and filmmakers because his work ethic is unparalleled. His passion for films, movies, theatre, and performing arts, in general, is what inspires him to become better and better at what he does. He takes his work seriously and makes sure he puts his efforts all-in when he is doing a project.
When not filming, Jamal spends his time with his family or working out at the gym. His acting skills aside, Jamal's good looks, tall height, and athletic build have also led some people to compare him with the likes of famous actors Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Mike Colter. But this promising actor is much more than that; he is also a firm advocate of the fight against racism. Moreover, his role as a father to his kids is also very outstanding as he continues to support and inspire them in the best way he can.
Much of what Jamal is today is because of the challenges that life has thrown at him throughout the years. These hardships have made him a strong father and a dedicated actor who is determined to reach his dreams in life.
