I graduated from Rancho in 1960. I started recording in 1959 and was originally known as Jackie Clark, but there already was a comedian known as Jackie Clark so my manager named me Jackie Dallas. I had one record under the name of Jackie Clark which was titled "Walkie Talkie". I had eight records under the name of Jackie Dallas - the biggest seller was "Lorraine".
I met my wife in 1964, she was fifteen and I was (gasp) twenty two!. We got married in September 1966 after she graduated from high school. I started winding down the music business after we got married and started going to college at night after work and on Saturdays. I was working in the grocery business.
I graduated from college in the mid 70's and went into the elevator business and have been in that business for 30 years. I started singing again and getting into acting in the early 90's and am still doing that.
