“RIP The HAWK. Joseph Jackson.
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. everyone that came to visit you, came with love, respect, and so much pride in their hearts for you. proud of you, proud to be your children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, proud to have your strength and share the dynasty you spent your life creating, and proud to be a jackson. you are the first true jackson. the legend that started it all. none of us would be anywhere near where we’re at if it weren’t for you. you are the strongest man i know. your life’s work will go down in history, as will you, to be known as one of the greatest patriarchs to ever live. i will cherish every moment with you til the day i die, especially our last moments. being able to hold your hand, lay with you and cuddle you, give you kisses all over your cheeks and forehead, meant more to me than you’ll ever know. quoting advice you gave me when i was a little kid and seeing your eyes light up, sharing stories my dad used to tell me about you, telling a joke and hearing you laugh for the last time.. my heart is full knowing we left each other in that way. i made you promise me you’ll come visit me. you agreed and i’m going to hold you to it. and i promised you that we will keep telling your story, over and over. to never be forgotten. my great grandchildren will know who joseph jackson is. i love you grandpa. so so so much that words can’t describe. i have immense gratitude for you, and always will. we all feel that way. thank you for everything. truly. rest in peace and transition. i’ll see you in my dreams very very soon.”
-Prince Jackson on Instagram :
“This man is and always will be an example of sheer willpower and dedication. He didn’t choose the path that was the easiest but he choose the path that was best for his family. You taught me to take pride in the Jackson name and what it really means, you taught me dedication in the face of adversity and most of all you showed me strength and fearlessness. There is and never will be someone like you. Fly free and until we meet again The Hawk.”
–Brandi Jackson on Instagram :
“So blessed to call you my grandfather, so blessed to be your granddaughter. You will forever be in our hearts and I’ll always cherish our conversations, everything you’ve taught me and the love you’ve given me. Our #hawk soars high above now, watching over until we meet again. I love you forever grandpa ❤️”

I lost a grandfather but heaven gained The Hawk.”
-LaToya Jackson on Instagram :
“I will always love you! You gave us strength, you disciplined us in your own way, you made us one of the most famous families in the world. I am extremely appreciative of that, I will never forget the last moments we spent together and how you told me how much you cared, how proud you were of me and how much you loved me! I am most grateful for that!
I will never forget when security and the nurses kept telling me you said my daughter La Toya is coming to visit me today, I want to look good for her, dress me up put my teeth in, it made me feel so good Joseph! I smiled and I cried all the way home.
I love you! #RIP Joe Jackson”
-Jermajesty Jackson on Instagram :
“I’ll always remember you telling me “you’re a Jackson, you’re tough”. I’ll never take for granted the values you taught my siblings and I. Rest In Peace I love you grandpa”
-Stevanna Jackson on Instagram
“There’ll never be another one like you. Rest in paradise. heaven is lucky to have you. I will not mourn you. You gave me so much to celebrate, so many memories of joy, and laughter, and love, that I refuse to mourn you. Over the last decade, you gave me the fatherly love that I never otherwise had. You gave me your time. Your ear. Your heart. You showed me what it is to be cared for, and looked after. I told you on Monday and I’ll say it again, I can’t begin to convey how lucky I am that I was able to share that with you. I will miss you tremendously— you were one of the funniest people who’s ever walked this earth. But while I will feel your absence, I am happy that you have been freed from your pain. I’ve never known anyone who loved life as much as you did, even up until the very last moment. And for that reason, I won’t cry for you today. I will celebrate you, celebrate your life, and celebrate the love you bestowed upon me. I love you grandpa. I’m still your chicken in the fight.”
-Asa Soltan on Instagram :
“Rest In Peace Joseph. Your strength and determination with Grandma’s Love changed the world forever and eternity. You will be missed greatly. ❤️🙏🏽❤️ #TheHawk*Anyone who wants to leave disrespectful comments about a man you don’t really know personally who just passed, remember that this is Soltan’s great grandfather. Have some respect.”

“A few weeks ago on Father’s Day I posted a picture of my great grandfather, my grandfather, my father and me as a child for Father’s Day. “The love never ends.” At the time I had no idea of my Grandpa Joe’s condition, but would find out a couple days later. I was told there wasn’t much time. To be honest, I don’t deal well with funerals, sickness and death. I’m very sensitive and tend to avoid these situations. Something I am working on. I wanted to be there with my grandfather, to thank him and spend some final moments, but I also didn’t want to see him weak, and have that be my lasting memory of him. And then I thought about the time when I was a very young boy and I saw my great grandfather Samuel before his passing. Although vague, I have that memory of him. So I decided to give my children that same opportunity with their great grandfather. Looking back I am so happy I did.
My own father, who shares the same struggles as I do with loss, also found the strength and courage and made the trip. Because of this I was able to have a moment with my father, my grandfather and my two sons. As a man and father it was very powerful, moving and touching. I could see both strength and sadness in my father’s eyes. My father told my sons, when they get older to tell their children about his father. And explained how we all had the same blood running through our veins. From Grandpa Joe, to my father, to me, to my two boys.
The photo above was taken a day before my father arrived. I got to spend some time with just my grandfather and my two boys. I thanked him for his strength and vision and for giving my father a better life… thus giving me and my children a better life and opportunity. I told him what he did with his family is amazing. I told him that I am proud of him and that I loved him.
My Grandfather passed away early this morning…. but we will carry him in our hearts, the blood will continue to flow in our veins and the love will never end.

“You did the unthinkable. You gave your all (and the prime years of your life) to make sure your kids and your family were a success. Some people will never understand the commitment and love it takes to do what you did. My life could have been so much different if it weren’t for you. I could have been in a gang. I could have a father who was in and out of jail. But I don’t. Why? Because you were plugged into your kids lives and saw a dream that they (or even the world) didn’t know could exist. It took all of your strength to keep your entire family safe from the real dangers in life. You are misjudged but I know who the real you is. And as your grandson I am forever grateful for the strength I have from you. I will always remember what I’ve learned from you. I will always cherish you. Always. I love you grandpa. ❤️💪🏽 #ripgrandpa #forevergrateful#pioneer”

“when @officialsiggyjackson first took me to meet you , a major life key you gave me was to always be confident and let people know that you know exactly who you are. Rest in light grandpa Jackson. I see where my husband gets some of his core ways between you and his dad #cutfromadifferentcloth #❤️”
-Joh’Vonnie Jackson on Instagram :
“Good People at 2:55 AM June 27th 2018 my Daddy departed this evil world. Im so glad I was there until the end. I had a bed right next to his. Constantly watching him and only breaking away to catch up on a few things at my home. He never had a moment alone. He was always surrounded by family. I cant even begin to tell you the strength my Dad possessed. More than anything I am so greatful to have been able to hold his hand and kiss his face while he began to transition. In the end I kept feeling like I was stupid for thinking it would be easy for me because there would be nomore suffering for him. Im here to tell you THERE IS NOTHING HARDER! Thank you to all my Good People for keeping my Dad and our family in your prayers. I will truly miss him. Allah thank you for keeping the evil doers away from my father and our family during this time🌹”
