The Southern California-born tough, sweet and witty animal lover was raised in a middle-class family with an unending family crisis. However, her love life with Jackson began in the 1980s when in her 20s, she was busy trying to use the inmate locator to find the owner of a dog she rescued

During her search, she was informed that the dog’s owner was in a California penitentiary. Eventually, she met the owner and it turned out to be Aren. Soon, they began dating and writing letters to each other, little did they know that they would get married and become husband and wife.
