Jack Owen is an American musician, best known as a renowned guitarist in the death metal genre. He is currently the guitarist for death metal band Six Feet Under. He was one of the founding members of Cannibal Corpse. He stayed with the band from their formation in 1988 until 2004 when he left because he wanted to move on as stated in the Centuries of Torment DVD. Later that year though, he was hired by Deicide—another influential and long-running Florida death metal band—with whom he has recorded four albums. He left the band in 2016.


As of November 2007, Owen has been playing shows in support of Adrift's full-length album, Absolution, which Adrift is done shopping to record labels, and which Owen has said "is a record I am proud of." Adrift has since broken up due to personal differences. Owen has taken duty as the lead guitarist for Order of Ennead when their guitarist, John Li, is unavailable.

In 2009 Owen played guitar for the white power band Attack on their album Fade Away, though at the time he was unaware of their racist beliefs.


Jack Owen was born in Akron, New York, to Norma and Glenn Owen. He said in an interview that his dad would occasionally bring out his acoustic guitar and play classic country songs by Hank Williams Sr. and other artists. "That's where most of my inspiration comes from" says Owen.
