Joseph Jackson, father of late pop superstar Michael Jackson, is reported to have died early Wednesday. He was 89.
TMZ was the first to report the longtime music icon's death. Mr. Jackson had cancer, and had recently moved from a hospital to a hospice, in Nevada.
Jackson had 10 kids with Katherine, his wife of 60+ years.
In a statement, John Branca and John McClain, the co-executors of Michael Jackson’s estate, said,
“We are deeply saddened by Mr. Jackson’s passing and extend our heartfelt condolences to Mrs. Katherine Jackson and the family. Joe was a strong man who acknowledged his own imperfections and heroically delivered his sons and daughters from the steel mills of Gary, Indiana to worldwide pop superstardom. Mr. Jackson’s contributions to the history of music are enormous. We had developed a warm relationship with Joe in recent years and will miss him tremendously.”
