Megaforce Records co-founder and New Jersey resident Marsha Zazula died on Sunday, Jan. 10.

She was 68 years old.

According to Variety, Zazula died after battling cancer.

"The world of music owes a debt of gratitude to Marsha Zazula, who along with her husband Jon gave birth to some of the most musically significant artists," Megaforce said in a statement.

"Marsha was one of a kind and taught the world to be fiercely independent. Megaforce and our artists will never forget her. In our hearts she will always be a guiding force. R.I.P."

Zazula and her husband Jon in 1982 co-founded Megaforce Records, which released the first music albums for Anthrax, Metallica, Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley and more.

The Zazulas frequented metal concerts and are well-known in the music arena.
