Joseph “Joe” Jackson passed away in a Las Vegas Hospital at the age of 89. Jackson was surrounded by family at the time of his passing.
Jackson had been in poor health for quite a while. The official cause of death has not been disclosed.
“I have seen more sunsets than I have left to see,” read a tweet posted Sunday from Jackson’s official Twitter account. “The sun rises when the time comes and whether you like it or not the sun sets when the time comes.”
Jackson is most famous for being the manager of music acts The Jackson 5, Michael Jackson, and Janet Jackson.
