Omari is obviously the most popular member of the Hardwick family, thanks to his flourishing acting career. However, he is not the only member of the family who is successful in their chosen field. Just like him, his look-alike brother, Jamil, has made a mark in the entertainment industry (behind the camera) and has also gone further to establish himself as a businessman.

How Old is Jamil Hardwick?
Jamil Hardwick was born on the 16th of October in a yet-to-be-specified year. As a result, it is difficult to tell his age. Just as his year of birth is still unknown, information about his place of birth is also yet to be disclosed. However, it might not be wrong to assume that he was born in Savannah, Georgia, where his brother, Omari, was born.
The entrepreneur is the son of an attorney named Clifford Hardwick III and his wife, Joyce. Thanks to his dad and mom, he grew up in a very loving and tight-knit family, and this is evident in the way he expresses his love for his parents and siblings on social media.
Being the son of a learned gentleman, itâ€™s no surprise that Jamil Hardwick attended school up to the tertiary level. While we do not know the elementary institution and high school he studied at, it is common knowledge that he attended the University of Georgia on an athletic scholarship from 2000 to 2005, when he bagged a Bachelorâ€™s Degree. He graduated with honors and was on the deanâ€™s list.
As much as we would have loved to share with you more details of Jamilâ€™s background, that would not be possible for now owing to the fact that they are not accessible to the public at the moment.
Are Jamil and Omari Hardwick Twins?
Anyone would easily believe that Jamil and Omari Hardwick are twins because they look so much alike, but they are not. They were born at different times; Omari was born on the 9th of January 1974, while Jamil was born on the 16th of October in a different year.
Knowing Jamilâ€™s exact birth year would have made it easier to tell who is older between him and his brother, but since that information is unavailable, we had to find out some other way. Upon digging into Jamilâ€™s Instagram account, we found a post he made on January 9, 2022, to celebrate Omariâ€™s birthday.

In the very first line of his caption, he referred to him as â€śbig bro,â€ť meaning that the actor is his older brother. Meanwhile, judging by their looks, it will be safe to conclude that Jamil was born in the 70s, just like Omari, as the age difference between them is visibly not that much.
Throughout the years, Omari Hardwick has proven to be a family-minded man, as he is never shy to openly talk about how much he loves his wife, children, and siblings. Jamil, on the other hand, has also done the same.
Even though their family appears to be a closely-knitted one, the relationship the two brothers share is obviously special. Despite having their own families and careers, they still find time to be together from time to time, and among the places they often hang out is at the gym as they seem to share an interest in fitness, considering how fit they look.
The fact that they both reside in Los Angeles has also contributed to making their relationship stronger since they get to see each other more often than other of their birth family members.
Apart from Omari, Jamil had two other siblings â€“ a brother named Malik Hardwick and a sister, Shani Hardwick. Unfortunately, both of them passed away from unknown causes within a space of three years, as Omari revealed in a tweet in 2014. Malik died at the age of 45, while Shani was 33 at the time she passed on. This explains why Jamil and Omari are very close.
What Does Omari Hardwickâ€™s Brother Do For a Living?
Jamil Hardwick is many things, including a talent manager, television and movie producer, and serial entrepreneur. He worked as a talent manager at Chaotik Management and Production Company, Los Angeles, California, from August 2008 to April 2012. Within this period, he represented actors on various network TV stations and managed lead acts in major movies, including Allen Payne and Michael B. Jordan.
In 2010, he became an independent talent manager under a company known as Artist Management and Production in Los Angeles. He remains with the company to date, and among the people he has assisted in managing is his own brother, Omari Hardwick.
As a serial entrepreneur, Jamil Hardwick has established various companies that are still in operation. He is a former Co-Chief Executive Officer of the production company, Bravelife. The firm has been around since 2006 and has several films and TV projects approved and authorized for production.
The hardworking young man is also the owner and manager of Social Climax Promotion and Events Company in Los Angeles, California. He is equally the co-founder of the OKO, a Cannabidiol (CBD) line for health and wellness.
Additionally, Jamil is a partner of the Blessed Brand clothing line, in addition to being the owner and a board member of the rowing and strength fitness studio known as Health House, which he usually promotes on his Instagram page.
Judging by all he has going on, there is no doubt that Jamil Hardwick is doing well for himself. Although he is not as popular as his brother, Omari, he is just as successful as he is.
Jamil Hardwick is Married With a Son
The entrepreneur is married to a woman named Tasha Dâ€™Arensbourg. Because he prefers to keep his private life away from the public, information about when, how, and where he met his wife is not known.
It is also not known when they tied the knot, but from all indications, their marital relationship has remained solid since they got married. Tasha usually appears in her husbandâ€™s posts on Instagram, and the captions always point to the fact that Jamil is still very much in love with her.
The coupleâ€™s union has been blessed with a son named Hart Dylan Hardwick, who was born on July 6, 2014. Jamil loves his son so much, and this can be seen in the pictures of him and Hart, which he frequently posts on his Instagram page.
He is also very supportive of the 8-year-old, and this is proven by an announcement he once made on his Instagram, revealing that he (Hart) was among the kids selected to be the face of the kidsâ€™ shoe line for Athletic Propulsion Labs (APL).
