Jacklyn’s first husband was also her most public spouse. She got married to Murray Kaufman in 1979. Murray was a DJ, known professionally as “Murray The K,” who was incredibly influential from the late 50s until the 1980s. Murray was known for embracing rock-and-roll, and most notably The Beatles. As an early adopter of Beatlemania, he was one of many people who earned the nickname “The Fifth Beatle” as he was a friend of the band.
While Murray was originally based out of New York, he moved to the West Coast when he and Jackie got married, per MTV News. Unfortunately, the pair’s marriage didn’t work out, and they got divorced in 1981. Murray died of cancer at age 60 in 1982.
Jacklyn got married to Steve Gribbin in 1985. While not much is known about her second marriage, it was the shortest of her three marriages, with the couple divorcing the following year. Few other details are available about Steve and their relationship.
Jacklyn tied the knot one more time in February 1988 (on Valentine’s Day) to Glenn Gorden. The marriage was her longest lasting, and the couple had two daughters from it. Jacklyn gave birth to Cassidy in 1990, and to Lacey in 1992. While Glenn has mostly stayed out of the spotlight, he occasionally joined Jacklyn for red carpet events over the years, like when they attended the Los Angeles Area Emmy Awards in 2004. Unfortunately, the pair split up in 2007 after 19 years of marriage.
