Joe Jackson, at 87, the father of the Jackson’s is still going strong, I’m happy to say after a series of medical emergencies, he alert and cracking jokes in his hospital bed. On Sunday it was reported he suffered a stroke and partial blindness. Most recently the Jackson family rep is telling TMZ that Pop Jackson’s speech is not imparted and his vision is restored. As reported, an artery burst behind his eye, causing temporary blindness and possibly triggering a stroke. Mr. Jackson says he’s aware how close to death he was and is grateful to be alive.
