Who is JJ Da Boss from the show “Street Outlaws”?
JJ Da Boss, or as his real name goes, Jonathan Day is one of the meanest street racers from Memphis and even a meaner ring leader for races. People first met JJ Da Boss in 2016 during his appearance in the season 8 of Street Outlaws. He did not shy away right from his debut, coming out as intimidating as he is and challenging the Street Outlaws racers to take on him and his fellow Memphis racers.
The episode was such a hit among the Street Outlaws fan that it will later lead to the birth of the franchise’s second spin-off series ‘Street Outlaws: Memphis’ in 2018 with JJ Da Boss in the lead. Da Boss will eventually grace us with his racing every once in a while but is mostly the one setting and managing bets and races. Instead, he has a deadly group of racers in his team who do the racing and winning for him in the series.
JJ Da Boss Real Name, Wiki & Bio
JJ Da Boss, real name Jonathan Day was born on August 10, 1973, in Memphis, Tennessee. Despite being raised in Joiner, Arkansas where he went to Rivercrest High School. JJ Da Boss would eventually return to Memphis to become the king of the streets that we know him as today.
JJ grew up watching his father and uncles race around in cars, and his mother would take him to see them race and other racing events. By profession, his family was roofers, but Boss opted to fix and repair cars instead of roofs. Whatever extra money he would save back then, he would use it to fix up more cars.
One of his oldest cars he gave new life to was the 1966 Chevrolet Nova, where he replaced its old scrappy engine with a block engine from a 402 Bob Truck. You still see him and his wife driving around that thing with his wife in the show.
Meet JJ Da Boss’ Wife, Tricia Day; His Relationship with Precious Cooper?
JJ Da Boss has been married for a long time to his lovely wife, Tricia Day. Well, lovely isn’t really the word we should be describing Tricia Day as she is his partner in crime. She helps her husband run the races and bets, and despite her deceptive smaller size, she is a fierce trash talker and racer who goes by the street name ‘Midget.’
Many people were curious about Jonathan Day’s relationship with another female racer, Precious Cooper. While many would think that they had a scandalous dating affair or Cooper was his new wife. However, nothing of those audacious sorts is true.
Precious Cooper is one of his racers that are like a part of his family as he treats them like one too. Their relationship is more like that of a brother and sister and even father and daughter. He even showed that even his wife had a good relationship by posting the picture below with both his wife and Precious Cooper.
JJ Da Boss and Tricia Day’s Children; How Many Kids Do They Have?
JJ Da Boss and Tricia Day together are parents to not just 3 or 4, but 11 children. We don’t know if all of the 11 children biologically belong to both JJ and his wife Tricia as we don’t even know the names and identities of the most. So far, we have only met 4 of what we suspect is the youngest to the 11 children.
All four kids we recognize are daughters that are Whitney, Aubrey, Vada, and Annaline. Jonathan, despite his hectic schedule from his career, somehow finds time to spend with his family, especially his kids. Here he is with all his daughters celebrating his 46th Birthday this summer.
He also has a much younger son, probably the youngest whose name we do not know born in 2017. All we know is that Day just calls him, little JJ Da Boss and hopes that perhaps one day he can also take over his father’s Ole Heavy and win races with it.
Why was JJ Da Boss in Prison; Other Controversies
Everything about JJ Da Boss’ looks and personality shouts, “Outlaw,” and as we would later learn, it was shouting the truth. JJ did find himself on the wrong side of the law recently. We do not have details on what happened and when but it is for certain that Jonathan Day was an inmate. Collectively, he served around eight years and one month in federal prison.
Street racing isn’t legal unless you own the track or road you are racing on. Perhaps it had something to do with his earlier days when he would race in random streets. Anyway, it is a thing of the past. However, he almost went to jail a second time when a controversy broke out recently in 2018.
A couple, Chad and Genny Larkin, were suing the show for around $5 million in compensation for a physical attack from JJ Da Boss and other of the show’s cast members. After going to one of their races upon their invitation to racers, Chad Larkin went there and ended up in severe trash talk with the group. Trash talking is perfectly normal in street racing.
However, JJ’s crew did not take this in good fun and attacked the man. First, they put him in the ground, and then they kicked him multiple times in the head and the body. The man sustained multiple injuries, including a torn meniscus, hamstring, and thigh muscle, among other minor injuries like swelling and black-eye. His wife was also injured in the altercation, but luckily, JJ would not be facing any jail time even if they lost the case.
