Born as Marlon David Jackson has an estimated net worth of $100 thousand. He is the sixth child to be born in the Jackson family and sadly, his twin brother Brandon died within 24 hours of birth. While this Jackson was still young, his older brothers Jermaine, Tito and Jackie formed an early incarnation of what would become the famous The Jackson 5. Soon, Michael and him joined the group and initially played the part of being percussionists. It has been documented that he had a tough time singing as well as keeping up with the group’s dance steps. Michael, on the other hand, was more natural when it came to singing and dancing. The young Jackson didn’t give up and was determined to be at par with his siblings. Eventually, he became a proficient songwriter, producer, singer as well as a dancer. He is best known being the main choreographer of the group and is even the brainchild of the group’s signature dance routines like the Funk Shovel as well as the Jackson Point Dance. The group enjoyed a number of years in the spotlight but later on had to go on their separate ways. This younger Jackson made his debut solo album Baby Tonight. This album that he wrote and produced himself was featured in the number two R&B hit “Don’t Go” where he performed before an audience at The Late Show together with Arsenio Hall. After his music career, Jackson went on to become a successful real estate agent. He is also part owner of the Black Family Channel.
