The project that took Jaleel to stardom was Family Matters, wherein he took the role of Steve Urkel. According to People, Jaleel’s character was intended to be a one-time guest.

Not only Jaleel was one of the principal actors of the series, but also wrote a couple of episodes. When he was 19 years old, one of the episodes he wrote was the show’s highest rated for that year.
At the moment, he is focused on spending time with his daughter while he stars working on a new project.
