Jens "Jeb" Bergensten is a Mojang AB employee currently working as the lead creative designer of Java Edition, Bedrock Edition and Minecraft Dungeons.

About

Jeb used the Minecraft Wiki as Jeb mojang,[8][note 1] where he was particularly active in the issue lists, which he sanctioned as the official place to report and discuss Minecraft bugs and annoyances before the introduction of the official bug tracker.

In April 2013, he was included in the annual TIME 100 list along with Notch.[9]

In May 2013, Jeb married Jenny Bergensten (née Thornell), a photographer.[10] They had a son in 2015.[11]

Mojang

Jeb joined Mojang in November 2010 as a game developer.[5] Starting out as a back-end developer for Scrolls, Jeb became increasingly involved in the development of Minecraft, implementing features like wolves, pistons, and map structures (villages, strongholds and nether fortresses).

Jeb later took the lead position in Minecraft development in December 2011 when Markus Persson stepped down.[12][13] On December 12, 2012, he announced that he would also take the lead of Pocket Edition.[14]

Trivia

  • Jeb is referred to as "gingerwithasoul" in the Scrolls trailer.[15]
  • Naming a sheep jeb_ will cause its wool to fade between all the sheep colors.

Notes

  1. His username was "Jeb" before the Gamepedia migration, but it had to be changed due that name having already been taken on Gamepedia.
