Jacqueline started her career in the 1960s, becoming a part of the action comedy film “In Like Flint”, a spy film focusing on the lead character super-spy Flint. This opened up more opportunities for her which increased her net worth. She also started doing modelling work in the 1970s, appearing as a model for several brands, before becoming involved in more acting projects such as “The Killings at Outpost Zeta”, a science fiction film focusing on a team investigating mysterious deaths in a barren world. In 1981, she would then be cast in “Beyond the Universe” which is about how a scientist tries to save the world after two atomic wars. Her net worth was rising steadily.

Ray then started making more appearances on television, which increased her net worth even further, with roles including in “Unfabulous” and “Dallas”. During the first season of “Magnum PI” she also appeared in the 17th episode entitled “J. Digger Doyle” appearing alongside her then husband Tom Selleck. After their divorce, she would make one of her last episodic appearances in an episode of “Birdman of Budapest”, in which she played Ms. Roebuck.

For her personal life, it is known that Jacqueline had a child from a first marriage which ended in divorce. She then met and later married actor Tom Selleck in 1971 and their marriage lasted until 1982. According to a later interview, Jacqueline said that the reason for their divorce was due to Tom’s increasing popularity in “Magnum PI”, which led to him receiving attention from more women due to the show’s success. Selleck would go on to adopt Jacqueline’s son from her first marriage, who would subsequently appear in a few episodes of “Magnum PI” as well. In 1992 she married Clarence Barry Witmer, and they have a daughter.

In 2014, Jacqueline was sentenced to 18 years in prison after being convicted of hiring a hitman to kill her son-in-law. She paid the hitman – Luis Barker – $12,000, and he would go on and shoot Leon Bauchum to death; Barker was sentenced to 29 years in prison for the crime. According to reports, Jacqueline hired the hitman fearing for her own safety, from being abused by the son-in-law.
