Marlon David Jackson (born March 12, 1957) is an American singer, former member of The Jackson 5, and older brother of American pop stars Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson.

Born in Gary, Indiana to Joseph and Katherine Jackson as an identical twin, his older twin brother Brandon died a stillborn after an emergency c-section surgery was performed on Katherine. They were born several months premature. While Marlon was still a young child, his older brothers Jackie, Tito and Jermaine formed an early incarnation of what would be The Jackson 5, called "The Ripples & the Waves." in 1964. Within two years, Marlon and younger brother Michael joined the group, initially as percussionists. According to sources, the boys' father Joseph almost removed Marlon, who supposedly sang out of tune and missed dance turns and could not sing or dance as well as Michael, from the group. Marlon continued to dance with the band, but did not sing until the group signed with Motown in 1969. Later, some fans appreciated him as one of the most talented dancers in the Jackson 5.
