Note 1

Joseph Anthony Germanotta Jr, who is known simply as Joe in his family circle, is known to each Lady Gaga’s fan. That’s so, because he plays an important part in his daughter’s life. She spends a lot of time with him and even devoted him a song “Speechless”, with the help of which she tried to motivate him to make a complicated heart surgery in 2009.

Joe was born in an ordinary family in New Jersey. His mother, Angelina Calderone-Germanotta liked her husband so much, that she decided to name her small son after his dad. Joe grew up alongside a sister Joanne, who died at a very young age from lupus. That inspired him later to name his restaurant after her.

He was educated at The School of Hospitality Business and then started career of an Internet entrepreneur. At first he installed WI-Fi in hotels as a worker, and later he owned the company of that kind.

Nowadays Joe Germanotta is connected with the brand, created by his popular daughter. He serves in the directors’ board of his daughter’s charity organization.
