Joe married Katherine Scruse and had 10 children with her - Michael, Janet, Marlon, Brandon, La Toya, Sigmund, Maureen, Jermaine, Steven and Toriano. "The family needs to be by his bedside - that's our only intention in his final days". I am extremely appreciative of that, I will never forget our moments together and how you told me how much you cared.

Jackson, the patriarch of the legendary Jackson family, had been hospitalized with terminal cancer.

He had eleven children, including Janet, Jermaine, La Toya, Rebbie, Randy, Jackie, Marlon and Titi Jackson. His passing comes two days after the ninth anniversary of Michael's; the world-famous singer died on June 25, 2009.

"A tough, uncompromising, charming and complex man who drove his children from the mean, poor streets of Gary, Indiana to global stardom". Still, Joe Jackson's love of music never died and when he realized his older sons Jackie, Tito, and Jermaine were talented, he formed The Jackson Brothers and acted as their manager.

He made no apologies when I interviewed him in 2013: "'I did what I had to do to give them a better life'". "And they treated everybody right". The Jackson 5 went on to release more than a dozen studio albums, sell millions of records, and become of the first Black groups to appeal to white audiences.
