Janet attended Joe's private burial at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery in Glendale, California. Forest Lawn is also the place where the Late pop icon Michael Jackson was buried.


Joe departed on June 27 after succumbing to cancer. He was 89 years old. He spent his final week in a Las Vegas hospital, by that time his health had deteriorated.

Michael's estate also released a statement following the patriarch's death. It acknowledged Joe as the man responsible for transforming his children to become worldwide pop superstars.
