NCIS: In NCIS, what happened to Director Vance’s wife Jackie?

Director Leon Vance joined NCIS in 2007, but what happened to his wife Jackie?

Since the death of Jenny Shephard (Lauren Holly), NCIS Director Leon Vance (played by Rocky Carroll) has been leading the team from behind the scenes.

Despite the fact that the cast of the CBS drama has changed over the years, he has remained a constant.

During the show’s run, Director Vance, like Agent Leroy Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and Jimmy Palmer (Brian Dietzen), faced the loss of their spouse.

With their two children, Vance and his wife Jackie (Paula Newsome) had a great relationship and a peaceful home life.

Despite his demanding job, it didn’t appear to have a significant impact on their relationship.

This was until Ziva David (Cote de Pablo) and her father Eli (Michael Nouri), the director of Mossad, a division of the Israeli Intelligence Community, were invited to dinner in season 10, episode 11, Shabbat Shalom.

This is when the real drama began, with not one, but two people dying.

Amanda Owen and her family have moved away from Ravenseat.

When a gunman drove past the house, he opened fire on everyone inside.

The actual massacre was shown from the outside as the bullets pierced through the home, rather than from the perspectives of the families.

Jackie died off-screen, with fans learning of her death from Vance and Gibbs in the hospital.

The attack also killed Ziva’s father, who was the intended target.

Ilan Bodnar (Oded Fehr), Eli’s deputy director, was later identified as the perpetrator.

When Ziva discovered who was to blame for their deaths, she set out to exact her vengeance.

Vance’s life was forever changed as a result of this event, as he now had to juggle being the NCIS director while also caring for his children.

But, according to showrunner Gary Glasberg, when they decided to kill off Jackie, they had this in mind.

Glasberg admitted to TV Line that he had been considering murdering Vance’s wife for a long time.

“I really wanted to do something to open up his world a little bit,” he explained.
