Joe Jackson Dead At 89

The head of the Jackson family empire, Joe Jackson has reportedly passed away at the age of 89 after battling terminal pancreatic cancer.

On June 21, son Jermaine told The Daily Mail, “He’s very, very frail, he doesn’t have long. The family needs to be by his bedside — that’s our only intention in his final days,” reported People.

Joseph Jackson struggled with his health, suffering a stroke in 2012, and another stroke with a heart arrhythmia in 2015 on his 87th birthday. He was hospitalized in 2016 for a fever and again in 2017 after a Las Vegas car wreck.

Joe is survived by his wife Katherine Jackson, and 9 out of his 11 children.

He can now rest with his son, Michael Jackson, who passed away 9 years ago at the age of 50, and son Brandon Jackson (Marlon’s twin) who reportedly passed as an infant.

RIP Joe Jackson.
