Jacqueline Puzder and Len Dawson started dating while they were in high school; she was a grade behind Len. The pair went on to date for two years before they got married in 1954.
At the time of their marriage, both Jaqueline and Dawson were still teenagers. More so, Dawson had still not started his career when they walked down the aisle in a secret affair.
This marriage lasted for more than 20 years and was blessed with two kids; Lisa Anne and Len Dawson Jr.
Sadly the union between them came to an end in 1978 after she suffered a stroke a year earlier. Jacqueline got to witness the years of the greatness of her husband before her unfortunate death at the age of 41.
Linda Louise became his second wife
Len Dawson’s second and current wife is Linda Louise Dawson. He got married to her after his first wife died.
Because he married her after his career had come to an end and they both decide to maintain a very private life, there is hardly any public records on their marriage.
In the same way, personal details of Linda Louise Dawson, including he date of birth and childhood are all not available to the public.
