As she grew older, her confidence and charisma boosted, and she began to find ways on how she can make the most out of herself. This was then the time that she decided to pursue show business and work on her skills and talent.
Jacqueline Ray’s Fabulous Career
The specific date and year of Jacqueline’s start to her career is unknown. However, many agree that she started coming out of the limelight in the ‘60s. She started out as a model, accepting different gigs and projects that showcased her beauty, talent, and wit.
Things went well for her, and she soon realized that she got the makings of an actress. Modeling was simply just a waste of her potential as she can offer so much more. And so, she decided to pursue her dream.
It didn’t take long for her to be discovered by a talent scout, and she soon starred as one of the leading roles in the movie, “In Like Flint.” She proved that she can help make films gross high numbers.
Well, that’s just what happened. After Jacqueline’s success with her first movie, she soon started with another one. Jacqueline appeared in the 1980 film, “The Killings at Outpost Zeta.” This was then succeeded with another film a year after, entitled, “Beyond the Universe.”
1981 showed to Jacqueline her ultimate potential.
Decades passed and she continued to appear in a number of shows and movies. But her comeback role is considered to be in the TV show, “Unfabulous.” Jacqueline also appeared in the spinoff show titled, “Unfabulous: The Best Trip Ever.”
No doubt Jacqueline Ray has a hugely successful career. However, life hasn’t always been a bed of roses to her. Specifically speaking, Jacqueline had a tough time when it comes to finding love. In fact, she has gone through three different marriages, all of which has failed.
Her first marriage was with Shepard whom she had a son, named Kevin. He was born in 1966. Things went well for the new family, but still, it proved to not be the right fit as their marriage failed a few years after.
Jacqueline tried out again and in 1971, she married for the second time around, this time with fellow actor, Tom Selleck. They married on May 15, 1971. Many believed that she finally found the right guy.
But then again, the same thing happened, and after 11 long years, the couple separated and finalized their divorce in 1982.
A decade has passed and she married again, this time, with Clarence Barry Witmer. They married on March 21, 1992. But then again, just like what happened in her past marriages, the two divorced. They also had a child girl named Umeko Ray.
Murder Case and Imprisonment
Many believed that Jacqueline Ray is now settled. However, it’s the other way around. In fact, she is currently locked behind bars after being sentenced to prison for 18 years. She was imprisoned in 2014 after she was convicted of planning a murder.
According to reports, Ray hired a hit man to murder the husband of her daughter. Surprisingly, she didn’t object to the findings and even said that she had planned the murder of her daughter Omeko’s husband named Leon Bauchum.
The reason behind this was due to the fact that she believes that Omeko is being abused physically and mentally by her husband. Furthermore, Ray confirms that she had paid Luis Barker, the hitman, a total of $12,000 to kill Leon Bauchum.
In addition, her daughter, Omeko, says that she believes and knows that her mother isn’t a bad person. She even said that Jacqueline just wants to protect her knowing that she is mistreated by her husband.
With this, one can see that her daughter Omeko isn’t angry at her mother. In fact, she defends her saying that Jacqueline only acted out of defense and love for her.

Selleck is also reported to have earned $25 million, based on numerous reports.

Jacqueline might be locked behind bars, but this doesn’t mean that she’s lost her beauty and fitness. Some reports even state that she’s doing just fine and is living a healthy life. Well, that’s no surprise as she managed to maintain her figure for years.
Her body measurement of 36-24-36 was maintained for a long time. This goes perfectly well with her height of 5 feet and 7 inches. She is currently 66-years-old. With this being said, one can easily say that she’ll manage to cope up with the challenges life has thrown on her.
