Jared Leisek was born in Los Angeles, United States of America on September 16, 1975. There is not a lot of information available about his parents and education.
Though, there is recorded some scandalous information about his childhood. In 1992, when he was a teenager, Jared abused a nine-year-old girl. Also, he faced two counts of first-degree abuse.
Despite his past, Jared Leisek became a very responsible adult, who is known for his advocacy for environmental conservation and philanthropic work. Currently, Jared collaborates with law enforcement agencies to help solve cold cases.
Jared Leisek’s career started with the finding of the missing body of Kiely Rodni, a teenage sixteen years old girl. After that, the Oregon-based scuba diver team gained a lot of attention and was involved in many rescue operations and underwater searches.
The group of scuba divers “Adventures with Purpose” use sonar to locate missing people and items underwater. This was first founded as an environmental cleanup agency that had the responsibility to remove vehicles and other pollutants from waterways.
After they discovered two cars with missing people, they changed the original objective of the agency. This determined them to look for missing persons whose cases have reached dead ends.
Leisek and his group do underwater and research activities voluntarily. They do not charge the law enforcement agencies of the family of the victims, but accept rewards willingly offered to them.
In order to fund their operations, Jared Leisek started a YouTube channel on July 28, 2018, titled “Adventures with Purpose”. He video records all their underwater rescue and search activities and posts them on the Internet. With more than 2.93 million subscribers at the time of this writing, their videos have millions of views.
For instance, in 2022 Jared posted on his YouTube channel a video about the underwater operation of searching Samantha Hopper, a 22-month-old girl. This video reached more than 9.9 million views until now. Leisek posted more than 480 videos on his YouTube channel.
Also, Leisek’s videos have been featured on some mainstream media channels, like ABC News and CNN. So, his content became very popular and led to fast growth, offering him an edge over HawksNest and other YouTubers.
According to their official website, the group “Adventures with Purpose” has helped to find 29 missing persons underwater in their vehicles since 2019.
