- Jack and Jennifer
Portrayed by Matthew Ashford and Melissa Reeves, Jack and Jennifer are beloved by Days of Our Lives fans. Rogue Jack was not the type of guy that innocent Jennifer Horton should have been attracted to, but she was, and found herself falling for one of Salem’s most diabolical sons.
Jennifer refused to let Jack make excuses for the terrible things he had done, and also wouldn’t let him use his position at the newspaper to hurt people he didn’t care for. Jack felt he didn’t deserve Jennifer and was terrified he would end up hurting her like he hurt Kayla.
When Jack pushed Jen away, she fell for Emilio Ramirez and almost married him, but then Jack kidnapped her on her wedding day and he confessed his true feelings. The couple would later marry and become parents to Abigail and JJ. Despite forces that continued to pull them apart, they remained very much in love with each other until Jack’s death in an elevator accident.
