Jakarin's mother died when he was very young, and his father is mute. His father hunts and gathers food in the jungle and sells at them market for income. Due to his father being mute, he is socially withdrawn and stays deep in the forest. As a result, Jakarin stayed at home, was neglected care, and developed a speech impediment from his father not speaking and Jakarin being alone while growing up. However, when he sings, his speech impediment disappears, and he has a beautiful voice!
Jakarin enjoys playing with friends at the orphanage and his favorite Bible verse is Matthew 1:1.
