According to a source close to the family, the Joe Jackson stroke was similar to others he has dealt with in the past, CNN reports. Joe Jackson is allegedly in “good spirits” according to the source. FoxNews.com reports the Jackson family patriarch is currently listed in serious condition. This brings the Joe Jackson stroke total up to at least three in the past five years, according to CNN.
