Joe Jackson Passes Away At Age 89

Joe Jackson passed away Wednesday morning at the age of 89. The official cause of death has yet to be revealed, but the Jackson family patriarch had been battling terminal pancreatic cancer.

Jackson helped to launch the musical careers of a number of his eleven children, including those of Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson. He also served as their manager and was known for his iron-fisted management style.

“We are deeply saddened by Mr. Jackson’s passing and extend our heartfelt condolences to Mrs. Katherine Jackson and the family,” the co-executors of Michael Jackson’s estate, John Branca and John McClain, said in a statement.

“I will always love you! You gave us strength, you made us one of the most famous families in the world,” La Toya Jackson posted on Twitter. “I am extremely appreciative of that, I will never forget our moments together and how you told me how much you cared. #RIP Joe Jackson.”
