Jackie Wilson (born Jack Leroy Wilson 9-June-1934 in Detroit, Michigan - died 20-January-1984 in Mount Holly, New Jersey, at Burlington County Memorial Hospital.- the exact cause of death was not revealed) On the 25-September-1975 Jackie Wilson collapsed from a heart attack while performing at the Latin Casino nightclub in Camden, New Jersey. Falling from the stage and striking his head on the concrete floor, he stopped breathing and suffered permanent brain damage. Emerging from a coma after three months after which he was largely unresponsive. In 1977 Jackie Wilson was then institutionalised in the Medford Leas Retirement Community. The Spinners donated $60,000.00 for his medical care, but apparently much of the money was spent on litigation as family members fought over his estate. Due to the legal wrangling Jackie Wilson was buried in an unmarked grave in Detroit (This sad state of affairs was later corrected in 1987). If that wasn't tragedy enough Jackie Wilson's son Jackie Jr. was killed in 1970 during a burglary. Also Jackie Wilson's daughters Sandra Wilson Abrams died from a heart attack in 1977 and Jaqueline Wilson was an innocent bystander when she was shot and killed during a drug related drive-by shooting.
