Entertainment Michael Jackson’s Father, Joe Jackson Dead! Published 6 months ago on June 27, 2018 By Aldin Pinkott Share Tweet Joe Jackson, the father of music legends Michael and Janet Jackson, has died at age 89, a person close to the family has confirmed. Jackson passed away early on Wednesday morning after he had been in hospital for terminal pancreatic cancer, celebrity news website TMZ reports. His death comes just two days after the anniversary of his son Michael Jackson’s death nine years ago. His grandson, Taj Jackson, also confirmed his death in a tweet. Jackson was the father of and at times manager to pop stars Michael and Janet Jackson, along with the sibling singing group, The Jackson 5. No cause of death has been released, but Jackson had reportedly been in ill health. “I have seen more sunsets than I have left to see,” read a tweet posted Sunday from Jackson’s official Twitter account. “The sun rises when the time comes and whether you like it or not the sun sets when the time comes.” His daughter, La Toya Jackson, tweeted about her father Wednesday. “I will always love you! You gave us strength, you made us one of the most famous families in the world,” she wrote on her official Twitter account. “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.” Michael Jackson’s Father, Joe Jackson Dead!
