Donzel Edward "Don" Owens Jr. † (September 10, 1947 - December 21, 2020 [aged 73]), better known online as PlasmaMasterDon, was an American YouTuber known for his covers of popular songs, such as Conan Gray's Heather and Joji's Slow Dancing In The Dark.


Don Owens Jr. was born on September 10, 1947 in Glenmoor, Ohio to Donzel Edward Owens Sr. and Norma June (nee Campbell) Owens, and had siblings named Gloria, Jeffery, and Danny Owens. He attended Beaver Local High School in East Liverpool, and graduated in 1965. The 1964-65 yearbook revealed he was a library aide from 10th to 12th grade, and was nicknamed "Froggy" during school. He was a retired plasma cutter for TP Tools & Equipment in Canfield, Ohio, and also spent time as a computer networker.

He used to have a channel named PlasmaDude47 and a second channel PlasmaDon1947 back in 2007 with the same variety content as his main, but both of them got hacked and were removed. He made a new channel on August 17, 2012, and uploaded his first video on the same day. He started to post a variety of content on his channel, including vlogs.

Sexual misconduct

On December 11, 2020, YouTuber Nick Crowley published a video on his YouTube channel bringing light to the fact that PlasmaMasterDon might be a recently registered sex offender. Nick Crowley originally found this theory in a post on the r/MorbidReality subreddit. The post on the subreddit linked two sex offender registry sites, both showing a person named Donzel Edward Owens, a 73 year old man from Ohio, who got arrested on August 19, 2019 for sexual imposition. His victim was an underage boy. He allegedly grabbed the boy's genitals against his will.

The post theorized that Donzel Edward Owens and PlasmaMasterDon were the same person, considering their similar appearances. However, with further research, it can be found that Don states that his videos are by Don Owens Jr. and he had an old personal YouTube channel belonging to Don that had no content, and the channel is named Donzel Owens Jr. The sex offender registry site also lists Donzel Edward Owens' birthdate as September 10, 1947, which is the same birthdate that Don listed in his about section of his channel.

Donzel Edward Owens' car was a white 2005 Buick Century, which is coincidently the same car that PlasmaMasterDon owns, as seen in the video "My Car 2005 Buick Century", a video where Don shows off his car. PlasmaMasterDon also made it clear that he lived in the same area as the convicted sex offender Donzel Edward Owens lives in, as he had vlogs of the town he and Donzel Edward Owens live in. PlasmaMasterDon also frequently visited parks and festivals in this area, making it likely that PlasmaMasterDon and Donzel Edward Owens were the same person.

Interestingly, four days after the post on r/MorbidReality was posted, PlasmaMasterDon announced on October 14, 2020, that his health was hindering his singing abilities and that he would likely step away from YouTube. The video was Don's very next video after being exposed as a potential predator, which is interesting.


These are the same things that PlasmaMasterDon and Donzel Edward Owens both have.

  • Same eye color
  • Same birth mark
  • Same hair color
  • Same glasses
  • Same shirt (as seen in Donzel's mugshot)
  • Same first name
  • Same last name
  • Both are Jr.'s
  • Same date of birth
  • Same car
  • Both live in the same city

This basically confirms they were the same person.


PlasmaMasterDon was revealed to have passed away at Salem Hospital on December 21, 2020, due to a lengthy illness.[1] There were no services, per Don's wishes. He was buried next to his parents at Columbiana County Memorial Park in East Liverpool, Ohio.
