I sent Jada Rowland an E mail. I told her what a fan I was, I told her I loved her work, and I let her know that 30 years later there is a coterie that still remembers her. She never responded back.

Hi Everybody, Wow! All I can say is WOW! Jada Rowland just E mailed me and informed me that she came across this site. She was wonderful. She thanked me for the compliments and apologized for being dilatory in her reply; what a nice thing to do. She is a classy lady. We love you, Jada! OXOXOXOX

Several years ago, I reached out to Jada Rowland via email and she never responded. Just a couple years ago, I googled her and nude photos showed up taken of her at a New Years Eve party in the 1970s. That could’ve certainly driven her back into the weeds, for sure. It really is too bad that there are so many such people in the world. The gene pool needs skimming.

She usually played the girl you wanted to marry, and after listening to her a few times, you wished you had! Sweet, sexy, good sense of humor. I've read that she's also a gifted painter. What a package!

Jada was also the second Carolee Campbell Aldrich on The Doctors.
