In 2011, a young video game enthusiast and entrepreneur 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 Jordan himself and many of his grade school friends. Among the original PwnZonez team was Richie Quinn-Delewski, an avid gamer who had battled cystic fibrosis his entire life.
In 2012, PwnZonez dissolved entirely as the key members prepared for life after high school. In late 2017, the project was rekindled and rebranded as Pozz. By early 2018, after nearly a year of reimagining, Jon Jordan, Chase Curtis, and Richie Quinn-Delewski 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 Quinn-Delewski 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 the summer of 2019, the main Pozz YouTube channel officially launched - testing the waters for what was to come. In November of 2019, the Pozz Games YouTube channel launched to feature exclusively video game video content. In 2020, Pozz aims to expand its video content into film and music as well - still with the primary focus of raising awareness and funds for cystic fibrosis research.
Pozz Games now premieres new gaming videos on YouTube multiple times a 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.
