Biography

Biography Timeline

1957

Marlon David Jackson was born on March 12, 1957 in Gary, Indiana to Joseph and Katherine Jackson as the sixth child of the Jackson family. Marlon's twin brother, Brandon, had an ephemeral lifespan and died 24 hours afterward. Marlon and his twin brother were several weeks premature. Marlon attended Cal Prep in Encino, California and graduated in 1975.

1973

While brothers Michael and Jermaine were the main attractions of the group, all five Jackson brothers sang lead spots on various songs. Marlon's voice can noticeably be heard on "Feelin' Alright", "Little Bitty Pretty One", and "Corner of the Sky". He took a more prominent singing role on the 1973 G.I.T.: Get It Together album, particularly in the last minutes of the song "Mama I Gotta Brand New Thing (Don't Say No)". Eventually, a dispute with Motown led to the group's split from the label in 1976, whereupon they signed with Epic Records. After the departure of Jermaine and inclusion of youngest brother Randy in the move, the group was forced to change their name to "the Jacksons". All of the brothers took a more active role in their music and Marlon filled in for Jermaine's vocal parts when they performed the old Jackson 5 songs on stage. On the debut Jacksons albums, Marlon sang lead spots on "Strength of a Man" and "Man of War." However, the Destiny and Triumph albums returned the brothers to the top of the pop charts. In the finale of Triumph Marlon shared a duet with brother Michael, titled "Give it Up". The return of Jermaine to the group in 1983, after their reunited performance at Motown 25, led to the Victory album and tour in 1984. For Victory, Marlon wrote, produced, and sang his first solo lead on the single "Body". In the music video for the single, Marlon can be seen riding a motorcycle and leading a troupe of dancers. Despite the success of both the album and tour, monetary problems and rumored clashes among the brothers led to the collapse of the Jacksons as a group. Michael announced his exit from the group at the end of the tour, while Marlon stunned family members by announcing his split a year later. This left the Jacksons as a quartet of Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, and Randy for their final album, 2300 Jackson Street, although Michael and Marlon joined their brothers on the album's title single.

1975

In August 1975, 18-year-old Jackson married his girlfriend, Carol Ann Parker, whom he met in New Orleans during one of the Jacksons' tours. Jackson and Parker have three children:

1987

In 1987, Marlon released his debut solo album Baby Tonight. It featured the number-two R&B hit "Don't Go", which he performed to an enthusiastic audience on The Late Show with Arsenio Hall. During the show, he was interviewed by Arsenio, and said:

1988

In Michael's 1988 book Moonwalk, he would say of Marlon:

1997

Unlike his brothers, after his brief brush with solo stardom, Marlon embarked on a career outside of show business, becoming a successful real estate agent in Southern California. He was also part owner of the Black Family Channel, a cable network designed to bring family-friendly programming to the Black community. Marlon joined his brothers on stage when the Jacksons were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1997. In 2001, he reunited with his brothers to perform as the Jacksons during Michael's 30th-anniversary concert at Madison Square Garden. He was part of the reality series, The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty, in 2009. His brothers (with the exception of Randy) and he have been performing off and on since 2012.

2009

Growing up, Marlon had been especially close to Michael, whom he considered the substitute for his lost twin brother, Brandon. On July 7, 2009, he and his family offered their final eulogies for Michael, saying he was the "soul" of the family, and breaking down as he tearfully addressed the crowd: "Maybe now Michael, they will leave you alone" and "I would like for you to give our brother, my twin brother, Brandon, a hug for me." Marlon fought back tears as he said, "I love you Michael and I'll miss you."
