"Mr. Jackson’s contributions to the history of music are enormous.  They were acknowledged by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002  in a proclamation naming him as Best Entertainment Manager of All Time;  he was inducted into Rhythm & Blues Hall of Fame in 2014 and his son Michael acknowledged him with a Joe Jackson Day at Neverland. We had developed a warm relationship with Joe in recent years and will miss him tremendously,”

Known for his unwavering determination as he shaped the careers of his offspring. This father ruled his family with an iron fist, reportedly physically abusing them if they screwed up their dance routines, lyrics or timing, and the entire family confirms that the kids had to call him "Joseph," not "Daddy."

His health troubles escalated in 2015 when he suffered a series of strokes through out the year. Just after his 87th birthday,  he suffered another stroke. But strangely, his cause of death ended up being the cancer he had battled for some time. Recently, doctors informed the Patriarch that his cancer had become inoperable and terminal. He had very limited time to live.

Tribute has been pouring in from friends, fans and family as they celebrate his complicated but extraordinary life, and mourn the tragic Death of Joe Jackson.
