After Rose's murder by two vampires, Joe and his wife were questioned by hunter Dean Winchester in the guise of an FBI agent. Dean implied to the two that Rose was a slut and suggested that Joe, who had a rigid and unhelpful demeanor, was abusing his family. At this point Joe snapped and attacked Dean until Dean threatened Joe with a gun. Backing off, Joe burst into tears over the loss of his daughter. Finally convinced that Joe knew nothing, Dean left the grieving parents alone.
It is unknown what ultimately happened to Joe as shortly thereafter, Superior suffered a Rabid infection. Before Sam Winchester found a cure, many residents were either killed by the Rabids or turned into Rabids themselves and eventually burned out.
