Joe Jackson is being remembered by his children and grandchildren on social media. The 89-year-old Jackson family patriarch lost his battle with pancreatic cancer on Wednesday.

Joe's loved ones took to social media to pay tribute to him, including his daughter LaToya Jackson, 62, who remembered her father on Twitter.com.

"I will always love you!" she tweeted.

"You gave us strength, you made us one of the most famous families in the world. I am extremely appreciative of that, I will never forget our moments together and how you told me how much you cared. #RIP Joe Jackson".

Grandson Stephen Randall Jackson Jr, son of Randy Jackson, 56, shared an old photo of Joe posing beside a framed platinum plaque for Michael Jackson's classic 1979 album Off the Wall. He captioned the image, "RIP to the king that made everything possible!!! I love you grandpa."

Meanwhile, Tito Jackson's son Taj Jackson, 44, clapped back at Twitter trolls, who criticized Joe for beating his children with belts and tree branches when they were young.

"Disgusted by some of the comments I'm reading about my grandpa Joe by those who didn't even know him," Taj fired back. "Please don't just regurgitate what you were spoon fed by the press. Joe was loved by our ENTIRE family and our hearts are in pain. Let us grieve without the nastiness."

Joe was also remembered by the co-executors of Michael Jackson's estate, John McClain and John Branca.

"We are deeply saddened by Mr. Jackson's passing and extend our heartfelt condolences to Mrs. Katherine Jackson (Joe's estranged wife) and the family," reads a statement issued to Us Weekly by a representative for the pair.

"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... We had developed a warm relationship with Joe in recent years and will miss him tremendously."

Joe and Katherine were estranged and lived apart for many years. She lives in Calabasas, Calif., while he resided in Nevada.

Joe’s estranged relationship with son Michael resulted in him being completely left out of the King of Pop’s will after his 2009 death. His mother Katherine Jackson continues to receive more than $1 million annually from the Michael Jackson estate.

    Amen.

    Rest In Peace Elder Mr. Jackson.

    Like I said Joe RIP.. He did what he did to get his kids to where they are.. God chose him as stewards over their lives and if you believe in a higher power then you know he knew who was best qualified to bring about a Michael and Janet Jackson..all the kids were talented..

    “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…

    However, Micheal didn't leave him a piece of lint, Joe Jackson is now in Heaven looking for a belt and Micheal.

  • Cali

    Didn't dumb a ss Paris just say that he wasn't dying in reference to HIS tweet that she said he DID NOT WRITE, but it was from his official account...meaning if he did not then some other FAMILY member did? She should STFU and stay her thirsty a ss of Twitter making herself look stupid and disconnected from the family.

  • Toni Toni Toni

    Rest in Peace to Mr. Joe Jackson.

    he created one of the best ICONS of the WORLD and such an amazingly talented family. He kept them all out of prison.

  • Karen Brady

    Wow. Prayers to this family and RIP Joe. You remind me of my departed father who constantly beat the shyt out of my siblings with a belt and pushed them to be the best they could be. He broke some of them for sure just as I believe you broke some of yours but at least you kept your kids together and really taught them about 'family'. Again RIP to you. Same to my father. It's been over 40 years and your passing has taught me to finally just say RIP to this man and let it go. Moving on. PEACE & Blessings all.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    I think the movie exaggerated the axx whooping's. Just as Tina Turner was disappointed with Ike Turners portrayal in 'What's Love Got To Do With It".

    The Jackson's movie was the first real depiction of a black household where whooping's were normal.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Bwahaha! If I had to guess, I'd say that part was true. Most folks that grew up with big families didnt' have much food, clothes or bare necessities to go around. Ben was probably the closest thing to a pet he had at that age. Not having a family pet (dog) could certainly explain bubbles and the rest of the giraffes and polar bears and shht he had as an adult.

  • Miss Thang

    no, the movie downplayed the azz whoopings actually according to every source who was involved in the movie and spoken about it publicly.

  • Evillene

    Nobody's perfect. Joe was a black man who stayed with and supported his huge family and engineered their rise out of the ghetto -- and y'all know Gary, Indiana was a picture postcard of the ghetto -- to superstardom when there was little opportunity for black men to get ahead economically. In that difficult period, none of his kids fell prey to gangs, violence, drugs, etc. At least not until well after they were no longer under his watch. He was mean as hell but there is a valuable lesson in there somewhere. RIP.

    Well I suppose azz whoopings can be attributed to success... my daddy had a thick leather belt with metal holes in it 3 rows across and he called it the big mack... Nobody wanted to have to go get that thang outta the closet... My momma and grandma whooped us with switches and my granny would even catch us fresh outta the tub to catch some licks on that wet azz...I think I caught a few house shoes across the legs too in my childhood. We only got whoopings when we did something bad though and we all are doing well in life... The kids who didn't get disciplined (dads by the last wife) are the ones who turned out to be rotten apples. :shrug:

I know people and family members who got whooping they damn whole life and still managed to go down the wrong path. Who to say if they didnt get beatings they wouldn't succeed. Its a difference beating your child cause they broke a rule and beating your child because they made a mistake singing or dancing. Obviously all his kids thought he crossed the line.

  • Miss Thang

    he stayed with his wife and kids in order to beat their asses some more and all his kids are fucked up. Michael and Janet are the only successful ones. Randy and Jermaine got the same baby momma. I'd rather someone end up doing a bid than have that kind of legacy. And I'm actually a FAN of the family. But I have to call out the good and the bad.

    RIP Joe. There's nothing to be sad over. He was fortunate to live to see 89 years, he took his family from poverty to securing the American dream. He got to see each and every one of his kids become successful. You can not be sad about this at all. Sure, they'll miss him, but they should celebrate for sure.

    Has anyone heard from Johvonnie, his other daughter? She looks just like them. Seriously.

    Michael Jackson was the greatest entertainer to ever walk the earth thanks to Joe Jackson. He was also bat-shipt crazy thanks to Joe Jackson. RIP Joe. You gave the world a precious gift (Michael) unfortunately he became a weirdo with a drug problem who may have possibly molested male boys and had two lily white children and one Middle Eastern one.

    I've got nothing but respect for Papa Joe. This kind of Black man hardly exists today and is the core of the break in the Black family unit. 89yrs is a long life and he was truly blessed..

  • the guest

    Black folks forget that the abusive beatings as a form of discipline stems from slavery. I don't believe in beating children and I made sure I married a man who felt the same.

  • the guest

    It wasn't Joe's fault that women was sneaking around the compound between the two brothers.

  • BadAss Will

    Thanks for that i never thought about it that way and it makes perfect sense

  • the guest

    The truth is when it comes down to it, if Joe didn't make his family's living room into a music and rehearsal studio there would never have been Michael Jackson and The Jackson 5. Joe Jackson was a visionary.

  • the guest

    Truth.

  • the guest

    THIS! gave me memories and joy.

  • the guest

    He did it because his children were prodigies and he believed in them and didn't want them working for pennies and dying young and penniless in a factory.

  • Kemi

    My husband and I don’t believe in beating of children as well. There are children that have died in the hands of abusive parent(s). Any form of abuse is abuse, so, I don’t get why some ppl are oblivious of that.
    We encourage abused women & men to leave an abusive relationship.

    Pancreatic cancer is just a bad cancer to diagnose. Most times when it is finally diagnosed it's already in advanced stages. 3/4 stage. My sister n law died from it. From the time of her diagnosis and her death was less than 3 mos. She was 42.

  • FukkFolks2018

    It more irritating for me than anything. Joe Jackson was part of the generation where black men started leaving their black ass families. We sit up here and say we want more black dads in the home...LIKE THEN. YET Dads as we well know from this generation may or may not have been more stern on the kids. So then...bc of that now we demonize them for using a strong hand. We cant have it both ways. Like it just irritates the life out of me. Why the hell Katie not being blamed for not protecting her damn babies more? Im truly confused here.

  • isaiit

    Black mothers unite. My mama was no joke. You better not put a dish in the sink while she’s washing dishes. That’s like initiating World War 3. You wait until she’s done then quietly slink in and wash your stray dishes... it’s just easier that way.

  • Miss Thang

    Michael was a prodigy. I seriously doubt any of the others were. I don’t think they would’ve made it without Michael as lead. But children need love and discipline. Can’t have one without the other. And Joe was cruel and twisted in how he treated his kids.

  • the chosen one

    I do not know why people want to say that just because they were whipped with belts and switches it was abuse. my mom and dad whipped us the same way, but at that time it wasn't frowned upon as abuse but structure; a precursor to getting our a$$es in line. I am glad to say that I am glad that we got our a$$es tore up because if not, we wouldn't be who and what we are today. good ole fashioned a$$ whippings saved the day for the Jackson clan, too.

  • PynkCloudz

    So sorry for your lost.

    ?? Kind words alternated with upper cuts......you told no lies though

  • freelancepimp .

    Those people are full of shit. Cultures around the world whip their kids. Those smart ass Asian's every one likes to talk about got their asses whipped, and more than that.. Those Chinese and Pakistani's and Indian people all got their asses whipped. Obama got his ass spanked and I am sure there was spanking going on in Michelle's house growing up. I am pretty sure George Bush Sr. Spanked his kids when they were young and Beyonce mother lies about never spanking but Beyonce has recounted in interviews of her mother spanking. Hell I think it was in the same video one time where her mother said she didn't whip her then Beyonce told a story of getting spanked. Some of the most accomplished people we know have gotten their ass whipped in one form or another. I bet MLK got spanked and his daughter said he never spanked his children;oh but one time he did. Whatever, her ass got spanked!
    Spanking is one of those things people love lying about.

  • freelancepimp .

    Every time I think of Joe Jackson I think of Richard Williams. Two Negroes they hate giving credit to for raising their kids and love tearing down every chance they can get. Hell they weren't perfect but who was. We do know they were there. I've gotten used to the media tearing us down, I just hate when other Negros get in tow.

    I might as well throw Beyonce's dad in there too. I know he had a baby by another woman but he was still the driving force behind the rise of Beyonce.

  • the guest

    AMEN.

  • the guest

    Yes he did. Amen.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I wish my dad had of invested his time in me to do something to better my life maybe I wouldn’t be living paycheck to paycheck. Invest in your kids. Rip Joe!

    Jackson Family just ignore Social Media for awhile. Know that Joe is Not what They Say, But what You Know!!!

  • Cannelle

    I just looked her up to see what she looks like these days and to me, she looks just like a cross between her mother and father.

    Didn’t he molest LaToya and Janet??? I’m so over people making some of these evil celebrities out to be saints when they die

  • TruthshallsetUFree!!!!

    That’s one thing but Joe Jackson abused them for real.. Micheal was socially awkward as hell.

  • jazmine

    Chile whats that Chris Rock joke? "wish I woulda had somebody whoop my a s s into a success" Joe aint do nothing to them kids that most black families thought was proper discipline in those times.

    The truth of the matter is they're trying to save face and change the narrative...
    Latoya no good and Daggn well how she feel about Joe..
    But as a family member it's bad taste and Bad Manners to disrespect an elder when they pass ..
    So it's only natural for them to spew niceties...
    But the proof is right there in front of our face Michael cut him out of his will ... What is that saying to the world and to his family?

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Pancreatic cancer is the worst, my cousin had it and we were looking for anything to her help her fight it till the end.

  • Phillybruh

    I mean if you barely in the group and you missing dance steps. After that beating Marlon was out front spinning and sliding to the left until he got it down.

  • Wayup!

    Hello all of these accounts that people here on a comment section are giving of their tales of as*s whippings do not account for what happened to Michael and his family THEY WERE ABUSED.

    WERE YOU????

  • Phillybruh

    That's odd because when she was caught up with that crazy manager who came and got her after he beat her with a chair it was Joe and Randy.

  • Wayup!

    Oh so you never heard of an abused person going back to their abuser.... Interesting... We'll just for the record maybe you don't know and I'm not trying to be smart but look up this popular syndrome...

    I have, but she has said on many occasion her manager at the time, made her say those things.

    The Jackson family once again has been mentally brainwashed by Joe.
    Latoya choose a man just like Joe .
    She didn't know any better she thought that's what a man was..
    Everybody knows Latoya is extremely mentally damaged behind a lot of things that she witness in her household
    For some reason I believe her and Michael were the most damaged by it..

  • Yoni7

  • Alicia.Ashe

    My mom just had her other breast removed. Second time having breast cancer, good news was it didn’t spread. Now she got to wait to see if they do chemo or not.

  • Phillybruh

    I believe she was damaged because she was thrust into show business and she had no marketable talent. The manager marketed what he could, he promised her she would be bigger than janet that's really all he had too say to get her out of that house. I tend to believe a person when they say they weren't abused and she has stated that she wasn't at least not sexually. I'm really trying to grasp why people are trying to make this man out too be more than what he was which is a strict parent. Michael knew what played well in interviews, what would make people sympathize and playing up abuse was a gold mine. From what I read about MJ and Janet they are Joes children through and through which is why they are more successful than the others.

  • Ebony Starr

    Everyone one is something different to someone else.

  • Wayup!

    Wait what.... So what you're saying is Michael and Janet and Latoya lied about the mental abuse that went on in their homes they lied for ratings ..?
    And since this was such a lie at no time did Joe decide to take either one of them to court for defamation of character?
    Like I said in my earlier comment everybody now is kissing Joe's a$s because he's died but prior to him dying everyone in this comment section was agreeing with the family on the abuse that they received.
    Now that he's dead everyone saying Respect the Dead but as far as I'm concerned Joe don't deserve my respect because he wasn't my daddy...

    Always.

  • Miss Thang

    but they are living paycheck to paycheck though. The Jacksons are not nearly as wealthy as they may seem. When Katherine dies, all hell is going to break loose because they all going to be cut off. The only rich ones will be Michael's 3 white kids.

    Such as selling his sons to booty bandits? or
    Beating them in the middle of the night when they didn't want to go sleep with the white men? or
    Making them hate themselves so much that they butcher their faces?
    Shall I continue? All Joe did was sell the talent they had. Then he cheated on their mother and produced a big bobbled headed daughter with anger issues and a nasty mouth. He allowed the daughter who brought nothing to the table but feeding her forehead, to be the only one of his children to call him daddy. The rest called him Joe because he required that. In other words he has no feelings for them.

  • Miss Thang

    Yes they are. They are broke except for what Katherine gets. All the real big checks are going to MJ’s 3 kids.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    I agree he did serious damage to his family and himself! It doesn't take away his business sense, which he left his children to gain for themselves. I am Not justifying Abuse Period. He could had left them completely out, like so many fathers!!!
