Claim to fame:
On October 14, 1987, at age 18 months she fell into a well in Midland, Texas and was the central news story the world over as rescuers worked feverishly for 3 days before she was safely retrieved from the well.
Where are they now?
She is currently (as at 2003) a teenager growing up in Texas, she has had 15 surgeries over the years but does not remember the incident at all. Her life's dream is to sing the national anthem at the Superbowl. Her plans are to go to college, get married, raise a family

What DIDN'T Happen To Jessica McClure: The Stuff Magazine "Jessica McLain" pinup in the May 2004 issue was a "parody" (otherwise known as "a lie"). Jessica was not amused, neither were her parents.
