American actor Jackson (James) White is known for his roles in films including The Space Between and Ambulance. Yet lately, because of his Tell Me Lies fame, he has had fans curious about his personal life instead. So, let us tell you who his father Jackson White is, in the rest of the writing.
Meet Jack White, Actor Jackson White’s Father
Actor Jackson White’s father is Jack White and he is a musician, and drummer to be precise. Following in his footsteps, Jackson always wanted to be a musician.
The actor known for Mrs. Fletcher (2019), Ambulance (2022), and The Middle (2009), adorably shared in an interview that he has all these stories of his father going on crazy tours in Japan and Europe.
So, from what the son said. Jack hitchhiked to Los Angeles and got a job with Ike and Tina Turner and Sam the Sham, and all these amazing artists, just by word of mouth.
Also, Jackson shared that while all of what he heard from his dad sounded as great as fantasies, he thought it was not really his path. Because he knew as he got older that he needed more structure and discipline.
Jackson also shared with Esquire that he grew up thinking he was going to be a musician before switching to acting. His words were like he grew up going back and forth between LA and Nashville where his dad lived in this house with a recording studio, three sets of drums, some old B3 organs, keyboards, and guitars. He described who he used to wake up to blasting music. And that was eventually the lifestyle that he also fell in love with.
As for acting, Jackson was not allowed to act until he was 18. His mother insisted that he first grew up. Jackson chatted with PEOPLE about the acting advice his Golden Globe-winning mother told him as a young, aspiring actor himself: “Don’t do it. Do something else.” Of course, he did not listen to her advice in pursuing a different career path.
When Did Jack White And Katey Segal Divorce?
Jack White is no longer together with his wife Katey Segal (Jackson’s mother). They officially separated on 24 July 2000 citing irreconcilable differences.
Katey, aka Catherine Louise Sagal, is an actress. She was born to director, and singer Sara Zwilling and noted television and film director, Boris Sagal. Later, in the late 1980s, Jackson’s mum became a household name as the fabulously brazen, undomesticated Peg Bundy in the enduring Fox series Married… with Children (1987). The matriarch was also a musician long before she started taking acting as a career. So, Jackson also talked during his interviews that it was a really musical house, growing up.
Now, Jack’s estranged parents share two kids, Jackson and Sarah Grace White (born in 1994). Sarah, the oldest of the two, also is an actress. But, Jackson and Sarah were definitely not their firstborn. Before the folks tied the knots in 1991, they were expecting a daughter. So, the mom-to-be was carrying their first child, Ruby. But, eight months into the pregnancy and Ruby died.

On 2 October 2004, Katey tied the knot again, with Kurt Sutter. They continued to be married as of 2022 in between also welcomed one child. She is none other than Esmé Louise, the younger half-sister of Jack.
Katey also was married to Frederick K Beckmeier, the founder of the Beckmeier Brothers and a member of the band Full Moon, back in the day. But, this marriage that happened in May 1977 survived three years only.
