    His father married his mother under the name John I. Owen, so I’m guessing “Jess” is just a stage name.

    American eugenicists and racists would claim he isn´t true english because he should look like “nordic” blonde and fair eyes lol Interesting that it is like the same the germans nazis did decades ago, even though they had to abbandon the notion of blonde aryan since their Führer had dark hair
