Marlon David Jackson was born on 12 March 1957, in Gary, Indiana USA, and is a singer and dancer, probably best known for being a member of The Jackson Five – he’s also known by his nicknames the Jokester, Dancing Machine and the Dancingest Jackson. In addition to his career as a musician, Marlon has also worked as a real estate agent, and is also one of the owners of Black Family Channel.
So just how rich is Marlon Jackson, as of late 2017? Authoritative sources have estimated that Marlon’s net worth is close to $200,000 dollars, accumulated from his careers which began in the mid-1960s. As Marlon still continues to perform with his brothers, there is a good chance that his wealth will continue to grow somewhat.

Marlon Jackson was a twin, but his brother died shortly after birth. When Marlon was still a young boy he and his younger brother Michael eventually joined their three older brothers – Jackie, Tito and Jermaine – to form The Jackson Five. Although Marlon had to work more than others to become a proficient singer and dancer, he was able to become a good musician and what is more important, a dancer, and became responsible for the main dance moves of the group. The Jackson Five subsequently released 18 albums during their active years, and undertook six lengthy tours, some ;iterally around the world all of which considerably boosted their popularity. The success of The Jackson Five had a huge impact on the growth of Marlon Jackson’s net worth.
However, during the ’70s the group became less popular, although not so Michael, and effectively disbanded in the mid-80s. In 1997 The Jackson Five was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. What is more, they also have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In addition to this, Marlon was a part of a reality show, entitled ‘The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty’, which also added to his net worth. Meantime, in 1987 Marlon began his career as a solo artist and released his – as it turned out – only solo album, entitled “Baby Tonight”. The whole album was produced by him, and it helped raise his net worth.
However, Marlon was not particularly keen to continue in the music industry, and branched out into real estate, moving to southern California and becoming successful in the business there. Another string to his bow was as part owner of a cable network called the Black Family Channel, with programming specifically aimed at the black community, which was also well received and added to Marlon’s net worth too.
Over the years, although the family has lost Michael Jackson they still continue performing as The Jackson Five once in a while. This not only makes the loss of their brother less painful but it also helps fans to remember how Michael performed.
In his personal life, Marlon has been married to Carol Ann Parker since 1975, when they were both 18, and they have two daughters and a son.
