Jackie Chan’s Son Will Get None Of His $130 Million Fortune?

By 27 June 2013 9

Interesting article in Celebrity Net Worth:

Being the only son of international movie star Jackie Chan clearly comes with many privileges and advantages. Jackie Chan’s only child, a 30 year old son named Jaycee, lived a life filled with opulent mansions, luxurious vacations, expensive cars, the best education and much more. Jaycee was even been able to launch his very own singing and acting career thanks to his famous father. But there is one important thing that Jaycee will not receive from his father. Jackie Chan recently announced that upon his death, he will donate 100% of his $130 million fortune to charity and that his son Jaycee will be left out entirely…

Poor Jaycee, wonder if half of Dickson will be sold off by these charities when Jackie kicks the bucket?

Jackie had a very, very tough childhood and adolescence, and worked like a slave all his life to get where he is. Having given his son a much better start than he had, he obviously feels that it is up to the kid to make his own way.

Does anyone know if Jackie’s mother is still alive and living in Canberra?

Jackie worked as a labourer on a building site in Canberra when he was young.
As bad as things were back then I’m pretty sure they weren’t allowed to use slaves.

I hope when he kicks the bucket, the bucket flies off and hits Chris Tucker and Brett Ratner in their faces. Because that would be a return to form for Jackie Chan.

Hong Kong action film star Jackie Chan returned to his Australian roots on Saturday to bury his father alongside his mother almost six years after she died in Australia’s capital.

Chan’s father Charlie died in a Hong Kong hospital on February 26, aged 93, after battling prostate cancer. Chan brought his body back to Canberra to be laid to rest beside Lee Lee Chan, who died in 2002.

knuckles, you should read upon Jackie’s life before making smart-arse comments. He didn’t have holidays when visiting his parents – as you say, he laboured on building sites. In fact, he has hardly ever had a holiday of any length in his life – unless you count time spent in hospital or convalescing from his many injuries incurred while making his films.

Jackie has been working full time since he was seven years old, when he started martial arts and performance training at the Peking Opera School, in a regime that makes Marine Corps boot camp look like Club Med, away from his parents who were working at the Embassy in Canberra. He appeared in his first film aged five, and has since been in over 100 films, doing his own stunts.

The guy is a seriously driven workaholic and perfectionist.

It’s not surprising that he wants his son to make his own way in life.

I designed a magazine cover for the Dickson College yearbook with former alumnus Jackie Chan on it when I was in year 12 :D It was a bit of a joke mainly, but the teacher liked it so much that she made it the back cover so I was happy with that. Jackie Chan is great, this sounds like a really good thing to do. And I honestly doubt JayCee will be left to die in the gutter, he’s probably old enough to be making his own way by now in any case.

Good on Jackie. This is a good move.

Dr Koresh, that is so cool!

His bio says that he “briefly” attended Dickson College, before leaving to hit the building sites. From what I gather, sitting still and being droned at in class would not have been his thing.

Today he would probably be diagnosed as ADHD or something and medicated into submission. The notion that some people are just made that way and that their energies need channeling into constructive and challenging pursuits is anathema.

Jackie isn’t like most people – his parents realised that early on and packed him off to the Peking Opera, where his finer feelings were not regarded as the least bit important. It was harsh, but otherwise I reckon there is a good chance he would have ended up behind bars or dead in a Hong Kong alley.

And yeah, the kid won’t starve. I’m sure his mother has a few quid and will feed him if need be.

It would be cool if Jackie Chan doled some of that money to an ANU scholarship for medical study.
