Jaden Michael is an American actor and model. He has starred in the films Wonderstruck and Vampires vs. the Bronx, and in the series Colin in Black & White, as Colin Kaepernick; and Harlan Coben’s Shelter. He was raised partly in New Jersey.

Jaden has stated:

…I’m Dominican, I’m black, Caribbean descent, and I’m kind of Jewish. My mom’s mom’s mom is Jewish. And in Jewish heritage your mother carries the lineage and religion, so I’m technically Jewish. And as the man in the family, or… the only man in the family, I feel… a responsibility to uphold that heritage that we’ve lost over the generations. So I started going to synagogue, and reading the Torah and the Tanakh, so I can learn more about that heritage.

Pictures of Jaden and his mother can be seen here and here, and a picture of Jaden with his mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother can be seen here.

Jaden’s maternal grandfather is named José Caminero.

Jaden’s maternal grandmother is Marina Aurora Pérez (the daughter of Luis Maria Pérez and Saturnina Aurora Liz Esteves). Luis was the son of Marciliano Luis Pérez. Saturnina was the daughter of Ramon Liz and Saturnina Esteves/Estevez; a photo of the two can be seen here.

    Correction: He is of Dominican Republic descent and his father’s ethnicity is unknown. His mother’s name is Clara Caminero. African-American tag is inaccurate
