The patriarch of the Jackson family, Joe Jackson, has died after a battle with cancer. He was 89.

Jackson passed away early on Wednesday morning in Los Angeles. The former talent manager had been hospitalized for terminal pancreatic cancer earlier this month.

The father of Michael Jackson had a history of health issues having suffered a stroke and three heart attacks in 2015.

The 89-year-old helped shaped the careers of his sons into the Jackson 5 and later Michael and Janet Jackson‘s solo careers.

His death comes just two days after the nine year anniversary of Michael’s passing on Monday.

Jackson is survived by his wife of nearly 69 years, Katherine Jackson, nine children including Rebbie Jackson, Jackie Jackson, Tito Jackson, Jermaine Jackson, La Toya Jackson, Marlon Jackson, Randy Jackson, Janet Jackson and many grandchildren.
