Members of the late Joe Jackson's family recently took part in a sports event to honor him a month after his death. Photos from the scene reveal Michael Jackson's son Prince in attendance along with his uncle Tito and his two boys. Jackson matriarch Katherine watched from the sidelines as her grandson paid tribute to her after.


A month after Joe Jackson’s death, his family gathered to honor him in a charity event over the weekend.

The Jackson patriarch’s wife Katherine, along with their son Tito and his two kids, TJ, and Taj, graced the Dee Dee Jackson Foundation Celebrity Softball Game in Encino, California. The late Michael Jackson’s son Prince was also there playing alongside other celebrities including NFL pro Terrell Owens and MMA star Chuck Lideli. He even shared photos from event.


There to show her support, Katherine watched from the stands as Prince and TJ participated in the softball game. TJ also gave a speech at the end of the game where he paid tribute to his grandmother and gushed over how special she was to their family.

“Grandma, you know how much you mean to us. We love you with everything we have."

The happy reunion comes a month after the family of musicians endured the tragedy of Joe’s death on June 27. The force behind the Jackson 5 died of pancreatic cancer at the age of 89, just a month shy of his 90thbirthday.


Weeks before his passing, news of Joe’s deteriorating death hit the headlines with sources confirming he had been checked into a Las Vegas hospital to manage his terminal cancer. Joe has been battling the disease for a while and doctors warned the family members of his limited time due to his untreatable condition.

After his death, his family gathered for a private ceremony at Forest Lawn Memorial where he was laid to rest. This was the same Memorial in Glendale where the late Michael Jackson was buried. Joe’s daughter Janet was spotted outside with her son Eissa, along with her brothers Randy, Tito, Marlon, Jermaine and Jackie who served as pallbearers. Photos of Joe and Katherine were exhibited during the service along with photos of their 10 children.
