Getting to Know JMatt
JMatt has become known for many different things, especially as it relates to the city of Milwaukee. More than just a resident, he is also an event planner and host of HashtagMKE which brings together content creators and social media enthusiasts from around the greater Milwaukee area.
Prior to the pandemic, he was the mid-day on-air personality for 103.7 KISS-FM (M-F from 10a-2p) and while many people found themselves looking for work, JMatt found a new home for his local content, TikTok. As of August 1, 2022, he has gained over 180,000 followers by creating city of Milwaukee content for locals. If you’d like some more information on collaborations, check out his media kit.
Another hobby of his is creating custom GIFs through GIPHY which has a total of over 250,000,000 views of his GIFs worldwide! You can browse through hundreds of his searchable GIFs through his verified account at @JMattMke.
If that’s not enough, JMatt is a mental health advocate and is passionate about spreading suicide awareness and prevention. He has participated in the 22 Pushup Challenge on Instagram for over 2,000 days in a row on Instagram (@JMattMke) with the goal to provide resources like the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 or the Crisis Text Line which you can text HELLO to 741-741 for help.
