How it Began
In 2011, a young video game enthusiast and entrepreneur named Jon Jordan founded a video gaming project called PwnZonez. The project included a website featuring the latest in gaming news and an attached YouTube channel where the PwnZonez team uploaded all varieties of video gaming content. The team consisted of Jon himself and many of his grade school friends. Among the original PwnZonez team was Richie, an avid gamer who had battled cystic fibrosis his entire life.
By late 2012, PwnZonez dissolved entirely as the key members prepared for life after high school. However, in 2017 the project was rekindled and rebranded as Pozz. By early 2018, after nearly a year of reimagining, co-founders Jon, Richie, and newcomer Chase prepared Pozz for launch with the focus of building a strong gaming themed YouTube channel to raise awareness and funds for cystic fibrosis research. However, in November of 2018, Richie passed away due to complications with his cystic fibrosis at the age of 23. Sadly, he never got to see Pozz launch.
The idea to relaunch Pozz, formerly PwnZonez, began as just a fun side project for the three childhood friends back in 2017. However, as the dust from the devastating loss of their best friend began to settle, launching Pozz became that much more important to the two surviving team members. In November of 2019, the Pozz Games YouTube channel launched. Throughout 2020, Pozz Games began to build its catalog of video gaming content with regularly uploaded shows.
Pozz Games now premieres new gaming videos on YouTube every week. With every video uploaded, the Pozz team hopes to play a small part in finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. Until a cure is found, we will #NeverPause.
Meet the Founders
An avid PC and PlayStation gamer as well as a founding member of the Pozz team (and an original member of PwnZonez before that), Richie was and is the absolute inspiration for the entire Pozz project. Despite living with cystic fibrosis, Richie truly knew what it meant to live life to the fullest and to never let adversity keep him down. In November of 2018, Richie passed away due to complications with his cystic fibrosis. Pozz is #ForRichie.
My name is Jon and I created the concept for Pozz (formerly PwnZonez). I'm an avid gamer and I love following the technological advancements in the industry. Generally I prefer campaigns to online multiplayer because I enjoy captivating stories and immersive lore. However, if I had to choose a favorite game it would be a toss up between Animal Crossing and Sonic Adventure - neither of which, ironically, contain a strong story line.
My name is Chase. While I wasn't a member of the original PwnZonez team, I'm a founding member of Pozz. Growing up, I played primarily Xbox and PC games, but as I got older I began to focus almost entirely on PC gaming. In 2019, I enlisted in the US Navy. Before shipping out for boot camp in October 2019 however, I was a part of the first ever Pozz video intended to test hardware and officially launch the project. I'll be back!
