Born at the end of a long hot summer in Los Angeles, just two years after the summer of love, Megan Marie Ward was the youngest of four children. Her family moved to Honolulu, Hawaii, when she turned four years old because her parents were professional actors who had been hired to perform in small parts on the Hawaii Five-O (1968) and Magnum, P.I. (1980) television series, both filmed in Hawaii.

Jett’s cover of I Love Rock and Roll was a number one hit in 1982 and Crimson and Clover was another memorable hit for her. Jett has also appeared as Columbia in the Broadway production of “The Rocky Horror Show”.
