Jacqueline is a performer in her own right, with several acting credits listed on her IMDb page. She hasn't done any entertainment work for the past few years now. But, she does seem to have a low-key public Instagram account where she tends to post pictures of artwork. Outside of that account, Jacqueline keeps a very low profile.

In an interview with Total Prestige Magazine, Morgan revealed that he has three children of his own. Which means that Mark had three grandchildren at the time of his passing. The famed son said, "I’ve been happily married for 23 years this October with three sons, ages eight, 15 and 18."

He also revealed to the magazine why he ultimately decided to stop acting

"After graduation, of course, I needed a job, and was fortunate enough to get some great bar gigs. Also, early on, I was lucky to work as an actor in episodic television, but, coming from an acting family (my father is famed character actor Mark Margolis), acting started to feel more a drudge job for me and the passion wasn’t as strong as I had hoped. I equate it to being the son of a lawyer or doctor, and following in the family business or profession," he told the outlet.
