After a long standing battle with cancer, Joe Jackson passed away at 3:30 Wednesday morning in Los Angeles.  His wife Katherine – of more than 60 years – and some of his kids and grandchildren were at his bedside when he passed away.

As a manager, he launched the career of his kids Jackie, Jermaine, Marlon, Tito and of course Michael as the Jackson 5!  The group went on to have tremendous success signing with Berry Gordy’s Motown Records. Their first three singles all went to #1.

Here’s a KYKX rest in peace Joe…
