Meet Jaycee Chan Jo-Ming, Jackie Chan’s son. Jaycee was born in Los Angeles, California on December 3, 1982, which makes him to be 27 years of age at the time of this writing. Jaycee grew up in the United States but moved to Hong Kong to start up a music career and he eventually released a Mandarin CD album in 2004.

Although you may think that Jaycee would be embraced by the entertainment industry because of his name, it hasn’t been a easy attempt for Jaycee living in the shadow of his highly successful father.

Jaycee told a source, “At first I did (have doubts), but not any more because I found quite a few supporters and fewer and fewer haters. So I’m happy with what I’m doing now. My music career is actually more important than my movie career because music is me, only. I create them (the songs), I sing them, I write them, I direct most of my own music videos.”

About his movie career versus his music career he says, “People tell me to do this, I do it, I get the money and I’m happy. If the movie does well, I’m even happier,” Chan said. “But if it’s music, that’s on me. If it’s not good, I’m the one to blame.”

So what do his parents think about his career choice? He says, “They want (my career) to be better, so they tell me, ‘You should do this and that,’ but at the end of the day I’m the one who’s in charge of quality control. I try to put my stuff out the way I want to.”

Do you think it is easier for someone like Jaycee Chan to make it in the industry or do you think because he is Jackie Chan’s son that the chance for success is much more slim? Discuss in the comments section below.
