1. How and why you and your wife have called "Jaclyn Michelle" with this
name (Jaclyn Michelle)?
In jewish tradition, when someone is born, you can, if you want, name the child after someone who has died .
You can use the exact name or the first letter of the name .
Jaclyn michelle was how we named her using the letter j for someone who had died in my family the same for the letter m .
My other daughter had a baby last year . She gave birth to a boy and the name my daughter gave her son was Jackson Miles,
named after Jackie .
2. How was Jackie at school?
jackie was an honour student. She always got great marks but she always worked very hard at school .
Jackie always loved to act in school plays and loved to sing and dance .
3. At the beginning, did you (or your wife) prevent her to recite?if yes,
when she had an audition for a voice over job or tv show or movie we
were happy but we were happy that Jackie was never depressed if she did not
get the job . She knew she could not get every job she auditioned for but
what was unbelievable was that she got most of them
4. When Jackie sang (Caillou's songs), what did she say?was she happy when
jackie loved to sing and was excited to make the cd of “caillou’s songs” .
I was with her in the studio when she recorded the cd and we had a lot of fun even changing some of the words
with the writers
5. When Jackie received her first job proposal, how she was?what did she
jackie was always excited to go for an audition even if she did not get the part the fact she was asked to audition
made her very proud
6. Was she happy to recite in 15/love?
for 15 love she auditioned and was told to come back again to audition again which was very good .
Both auditions went well and she was told she had one of the leading parts but did not know which one .
Only after did we find out that her part and laurences they were not sure who was going to play which part.
7. Who told you her accident the 8 september?
On the day of the accident we received a phone call from the TV set, asking
us questions if Jackie had been picked up, because she had not been to work
yet. They tried to contact the driver on his cell phone but seeing as they
were in an accident his phone was not available. My wife and I, continued to
contact the set, I left my office to meet my wife at home. When I got home
there were six police cars outside my house waiting to tell me about the
8. How is the bedroom's Jackie now?Is it again equal before?
We have moved from our old house where we lived when Jackie was
alive. But for over 1 year, Jackie's room was kept the same; we did not move
or take out anything. As of now all of Jackie's clothes and personal
belongings are with us. We are deciding what to do with her clothes, we are
thinking about making some blankets.
9. If jackie were here, what would you want to say to her?
If I was ever able to see Jackie again, I would love to just hug and
squeeze her and tell her how much I love her. This was often a usual routine
for us when she was alive.
10. Would you want to say something to all Jackie's fans/friends of the world
that they are reading this questionary?
What I would like her fans to know is that Jackie
was a typical 17 year old girl who happened to have a lot of talent.
Regardless of her accomplishments she always worked very hard, and never let
her ego get the best of her.
11. And, now Larry...I would have a particular demand.... Coul you photograph
Jackie's gravestone?and sent it to me here in email?
I visit Jackie's grave all the time, right now it is winter in
Canada, and there is a lot of snow on the ground. I will send you a picture
of her stone in the spring where there are flowers in front of it.

I do not know if you know this or not but when Jackie was born and I saw her for the first time I said out loud my little "muffin". From that day on I always called her "muffin" as it became her nickname . all her friends and family knew her as the "muffin" and even the cast sometimes called her "muffin".

Jackie is buried in a cemetery in montreal .
jackie loved janet Jackson as her favorite singer .

Question: When did you and your family arrive to the hospital the day of the accident,
was Jackie still alive or she was already died?
On september 8th 2003, I left work to go home and be with the rest of my family when the car
Jackie and vadim were in was missing . When I got home there were 5 police cars waiting to take us to the hospital. We were told at my house that Jackie was dead . Actually it was on radio and tv before we knew . At the hospital I had to identify Jackie . We found out after
that she had died instantly on collision so she did not suffer . larry

When did jackie obtain the role of Megan in 15love, how has she reacted?
How did Jackie do when she returned at home after a day of work on 15love?
Jackie found out about 1 month before they started filming that she had a part in 15 love . The only thing she did not know was which part .The directors and producers were not sure if Jackie should be Meagan or the part Laurence played . she did not care which part she would get as she was very happy to play either one as was Laurence .When she got the part she was very excited . 1 week before filming began the cast director writer producer and myself and the other parents were invited to the set where everyone met saw where ther would be filming and went for lunch . it was unbelievable to see how excited and friendly everone was . you can not believe how close all the kids were . even though they spent all day and sometimes late nites together they still found time to go out on weekends and days off . every nite when she got home she would relax a little and always review her lines for the next day . she was always very prepared . she would always tell us about her day and if anything special happened. One story sticks out in my mind . One nite I asked her how was your day and I could see something special happened by her tone but she didn't say anything . I finally said "come on Muffin tell me what happened" . She begins to tell me that the director comes over to her to tell her the scene they were going to film know was a hard one and that they would probably have to redo it many times so not to get discouraged . then he said they will film it know as a test and then review . the scene was where Jackie had to eat pasta and talk at the same time . The director was sure it would take a few times before she got it right . so they start filming the scene she eats and talks and when it is over the director yells cut . everyone and trust me there is at least 40 50 people watching and working stands up applauds and they tell her she got it perfect on the first try .she was so proud but Jackie did not want to tell me she would rather talk about other accomplishments of the other actors . I was on the set many times to watch all the kids work and I realized how talented and special they all were . Larry

Dear stef I waited a few days to write you because I needed confirmation on the project iam doing.
firstly I do not know if you know or not but I personally give a scholarship to a student in
jackies school who excels in drama .i have also bought a special machine for the childrens
hospitali through donations and my money that can detect hearing problems for children
from birth until about 10 years old . this machine is portable and when needed can be taken
to other hospitals in the city .ther is only one machine like this in montreal . for mr though
I always wanted to do something special for Jackie but also for myself as maybe this will give
me some peace . before I get to that I do not know if you know that Iafter Jackie died it
took me one year to get the government to grant me a inquiry into her death so I could find
out what happened how it happened and how it can be prevented from happening again .
then it took me I year to preapare for the week in court and most if not all my questions
were answered . The 2 years were stressfull on my family to a degree but I had to do it

Question: What do you and your family do on 8th January (jackie's birthday)?
Hi stef . Usually on jan8 I go to cemetery for a short time as it is cold in Canada and there is a lot of snow .Family and friends call
all day to find out how we are doing and I get a lot of emails . It seems to me that my wife and children as well as myself seem to be very quite all day
I guess because we think about Jackie all day . we miss her so much .larry
