Jason Marcus Headen was born July 8, 1984, to Noreen and James Headen in Jersey City, New Jersey. He departed this life on Saturday, October 8, 2023, in Kissimmee, Florida, after a long battle with cancer.

Jason spent his early years in Newark, New Jersey, where he attended Chad Science Academy until his junior year in high school. Afterward, he moved to Oklahoma, where he graduated from Northwest Classen High School, in Oklahoma City, demonstrating his dedication to education and growth.

He was preceded in death by James Headen (father), Constance and James Headen, Lillie and Henry Britt (grandparents), Damali (sister), Kevan (brother), Wallace (uncle), cousins David and Tammy, and of course, Tiny Old Man (Nolen). He is survived by his parents, Noreen and Leonard McGhee, only nephew Jihad, siblings Shelly, Nia, and Khari, aunts Carol, Kitty, Ellen, Joan, Roberta, and Virginia, uncles Henry and David, cousins Karen, Ebony, Shelonda, Andrea, and Telia; and a host of many other cousins, friends, and loved ones.

One of Jason's greatest passions was music. He had a remarkable talent for singing, and his voice graced various stages and groups throughout his life. He was a prominent member of "The Headliners", “Wavetones Inc.” and “Royal Jelly”, where he shared his love for music with audiences. His contributions as the "Boogieman" in "Squadlive" added a unique and memorable flair to his performances.

Karaoke was another platform where Jason shined. He ran the show at the "Screaming Coyote Karaoke," where he encouraged people to seize the spotlight and showcase their talents. His charismatic presence and passion for singing made these events unforgettable.

In addition to his musical pursuits, Jason also had a caring and engaging personality. He worked as a docent at Ostrich Land USA Inc., sharing his knowledge and enthusiasm for animals, making their experiences memorable and educational.


Jason's love for his family was boundless. He was a pillar of support, always encouraging open communication and fostering stronger bonds among his loved ones. His dedication to family unity was unwavering, and his presence remarkably brought people closer together.

His dynamic personality was truly a force of nature. Jason had a gift for striking up conversations with anyone, whether they were familiar faces or strangers. His charisma and warmth were like a ray of sunshine, effortlessly brightening any room he entered. He had a way of making everyone feel welcome and valued.

Jason Marcus Headen touched the lives of many with his warmth, talent, and dedication. He will be remembered for his beautiful voice, entertaining ability, and genuine kindness. He leaves behind a legacy of love and music that will continue to inspire those who had the privilege of knowing him.

    My deep condolences go out to Jason’s family. He was an amazing person. A light in the darkness who brought joy to so many! He could brighten up anyone’s day with his contageous smile and upbeat positive attitude! He saved many lives just by being such a great friend to many and a person who would listen to others or just sit with them in their darkness, which helped many of us who are suicidal at times to keep on fighting. He melted hearts and gave chill bumps to many with his musical talents and beautiful voice and was the best DJ ever, especially when he was the Karaoke DJ at many a favorite Karaoke bar. He was truly an Angel on Earth and this world has become a bit darker now that he is no longer on this Earthly realm. Jason Marcus Headon. You are very much missed by so many and will be for all eternity. My heart is still breaking since your departure! It is so surreal that I have to pinch myself at times to make sure I am truly awake and not in a horrible nightmare that is telling me you are gone. Rest deeply my friend; you deserve it after helping so many while you were Earth bound. I will never forget you and how kind you were to me and many other souls here on Earth! Fly high with those celestial wings you now have and I hope I can find you when my time is up on this huge rock floating in the Universe called Earth. I love you Jason and all that you were and all that you did for others. You were truly a Saint! We will greatly miss you. Sending hugs to you in Heaven!
