Joe Jackson Buried In The Same Cemetery As Son Michael After Funeral

Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California

Joe Jackson was laid to rest near his son, Michael, on Monday (July 2), according to multiple outlets.

After passing away at the age of 89 from pancreatic cancer, the patriarch of the Jackson family was honored with a private ceremony at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California. According to the Associated Press, it's the same cemetery that his son, Michael, was buried in during his 2009 funeral. The ceremony saw appearances from his children, including Janet Jackson, Jackie Jackson, as well as other family members. Jackie even shared a photo of himself dressing one of his young twin sons in a suit on Instagram.

Joe Jackson died at the age of 89 at 3:30 AM in Los Angeles on June 27, 2018 — just two days after the ninth anniversary of the death of MJ. Two weeks ago, Joe had been hospitalized with terminal cancer and had been surrounded by his wife, Katherine Scruse, and some of his children and grandchildren up until his passing. 

Shortly afterward, Paris Jackson mourned the loss of her grandfather with a touching Instagram post, where she shared some of their final moments together. In the post, the 20-year-old star took to the social media platform to detail that the final moments were filled with stories, laughter and lots of affection. "Spending those last few moments with you were everything. Being able to tell you everything I needed to tell you before saying goodbye was such a blessing," she kicked off the message. "Everyone that came to visit you, came with love, respect, and so much pride in their hearts for you."
