Joe Jackson was born on July 26, 1928, in Fountain Hill, Arkansas. In memoirs, Joe described his father as strict and domineering and said he had a very lonely childhood, despite having many siblings. Long before he was one of the most successful managers in the music industry, Joe had dreams of becoming a boxer.
In 1949 he married Katherine Jackson and together they had 10 children. It was in the ’60s that Joe began working his children in the music industry and first formed the Jackson 5.
