WHO WAS JACK AND KRISTINA WAGNER’S SON HARRISON?
Harrison was the youngest son of Jack and Kristina Wagner. His older brother was Peter and his half-sister from Jack’s side was Kerry. Unfortunately, this wasn’t the first time Harrison made headlines.
On July 11, 2016, Jack announced on Twitter that Harrison had been missing for five days. The actor revealed he was worried about his son’s safety because he had drug and alcohol issues, “just like I did it when I was younger.”
The last time Harrison appeared on one of her parents’ social media accounts was on May 20, 2022, when Kristina shared a photo posing between Harrison and Peter and saying goodbye at Wagner Ranch.

WHO ARE JACK WAGNER AND KRISTINA WAGNER?
Kristina and Jack were two of the most successful soap opera actors from the 1980s to the 1990s. “General Hospital”, one of the longest running American soap operas in history, skyrocketed their careers and launched their romance .
Jack portrayed Frisco Jones and Kristina played Frisco’s love interest Felicia Cummins for several years. They have become one of the most exciting power couples to watch, mainly due to their intense chemistry.
Kristina and Jack decided to try love and married in 1993. Although their romance didn’t last forever (they divorced in 2006), they remained friends over the years.
Divorce was the best thing that could have happened to me.
Besides “General Hospital”, Jack is famous for his long career in “The Bold and the Beautiful”, “Melrose Place” and “When Calls the Heart”. Kristina also appeared in “When Calls the Heart” and returned to “General Hospital” in 2012.
Although “General Hospital” has been on the air since 1963, they keep things fresh with ongoing storylines centering on more than one of the characters working at General Hospital or in the Quartermaines-related business world.
WHY JACK WAGNER AND KRISTINA WAGNER DIVORCE?
Years after splitting up with Jack, Kristina revealed their divorce led to a revival. It made her realize that she needed to learn about herself before moving forward. Kristina added:
“The divorce was the best thing that could have happened to me and my children, because I don’t think I was a very good mother at the time.”
Kristina also realized that it’s easy to get lost in your early twenties because you keep doing what’s expected of you instead of thinking about your needs.
On the other hand, Jack dated his “Melrose Place” co-star Heather Locklear for several years. They got engaged in 2011 but called off later that year. Rest in peace, Harrison.
