Jack Pearson was married to Rebecca Pearson (Malone) until the latter part of the 1990’s when he passed away. He is a huge Pittsburgh Steelers fan and teaches his wife all about the game of football. Jack is an alcoholic, which caused stress in his marriage. His parents are Stanley and Marilyn Pearson and he has no known siblings.
Rebecca Pearson, maiden name Malone, was previously married to Jack Pearson, up until his death and is now married to Miguel, Jack’s former best friend. Her parents are Dave and Dorothy Malone and we know she has a sister, but her name has never been mentioned.
Jack and Rebecca
We first meet Jack and Rebecca in the pilot episode. It is Jack’s 36th birthday and even though Rebecca is eight months pregnant with triplets, she still tries to make sure he has a good birthday. However, their celebrating is cut short when Rebecca goes into labor, six weeks before her due date. We find out that sadly, one of the triplets, a boy, didn’t make it. We later see Jack looking at his twins- Kevin and Kate- when a police officer drops off a baby located at a fire station. That baby turns out to be Randall, whom Jack and Rebecca adopt.
