Jack and Rachel Robinson had three children: Jackie Jr., who died in a car crash after time in the Army and in a drug rehab program; Sharon, who became a midwife and a mother; and David, who founded a school in East Africa. Rachel was the glue holding the family together, with Jack's help. Religion, social responsibility, and public service were cardinal family virtues.
