Jackie and his mother both had strong personalities that they showed in different ways. “According to Jackie’s sister Willa Mae,’We always worried about him because he was so quick to anger if somebody said something that was insulting. I don’t think Jack ever looked for a fight, but I don 't think he ever walked away from one, neither,’”(10).
