Joe Jackson, the patriarch of the legendary The World's Most Popular Music Family The Jacksons, was laid to rest at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale near his son, Jermaine's brother Michael, on Monday 2 July 2018. Joe, who died at the age of 89 from pancreatic cancer, was farewelled in a private ceremony at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California, the same cemetery where Michael was buried in. The Jackson family patriarch died on Wednesday and is survived by eight of his children (with Katherine) and multiple grandchildren.
“We want to thank you all for the support you have shown us as we grieve for the patriarch of our family. We mourn the loss of our father and celebrate the life of a man who sacrificed so much to give us the life and success we have today. Thank you for respecting our privacy during this time,” the family said in a statement.
