1) Phil Gemenden said Jackie did a back flip with a broken leg at Delmar.

2) Jackie rescued Bob Sweeten from drowning when they were younger.

3) In 1959 Sandy Sacks Johnson had a baby boy, Van, in April. In July, her husband, Van Johnson, was killed racing. In December, her younger sister Nancy, her mother, and her brother's girlfriend were killed in a terrible auto accident after which their car caught on fire. Sandy's brother managed to crawl from the wreck, and he was going back to rescue the others when he was restrained by others who knew the situation was hopeless.

4) In 1962, Jackie and Sandy McLaughlin had a baby girl. In 1980 that little girl was on the US Olympic Swim Team, but the team did not participate in the Olympics in Moscow that year because of the boycot by the USA. The baby girl was named Nancy for the younger sister that Sandy lost in the accident.
