Megan Ruth Marshack, born on October 31, 1953, is an American producer and television news writer. She served as an aide to former American Vice President Nelson Rockefeller. When he suffered a severe heart attack on January 26, 1979, and died the same day, Marshack was present with him. She is mostly known for this very reason and the fact that, during the course of her time as an aide to Mr. Rockfeller, the nature of their relationship was open to wide speculation. Apart from this, she is also known as an entrepreneur and journalist. She currently works at WCBS-TV.
Birth and Early Childhood
Megan Marshack was born on October 31, 1953, in the state of California, United States. Her parents were Sydney and Credwyn Marshack.

Aide to Nelson Rockfeller
Apart from being a successful journalist and media reporter, Megan also had another ambition. One that would eventually lead her into ambiguous territory. She wanted to work as a White House correspondent. For those who are not aware, the White House press corps is a rather prestigious group of journalists and correspondents who are assigned to the White House. They have a singular objective. It is to provide free and fair coverage of the presidency.
Being a White House correspondent is not only an honor but also a great responsibility. According to Megan, it was her wildest desire to get into the White House as a correspondent. She spent every waking hour trying to achieve this very objective. Apart from being part of a successful stint at the Associated Press, Megan also worked as a volunteer in a 1974 Common Cause sponsored campaign. This was aimed at reforming the election campaign laws in California.
All this led to her gaining more and more experience. Eventually, she caught the eye of White House as a potential recruit, and it hired her to work as an aide to Rockefeller. The Vice President had not left the office yet. According to the colleagues she had back then, Megan soon grew extremely close to Rockefeller. She often spent long hours with him in his office. Her salary also increased steadily. She would often flaunt her proximity to the Vice President, much to the dislike of her co-workers.
Rockfeller left the office of Vice President soon afterwards. Megan, however, continued working as his aide and never left his side even once. Just two years later, he experienced a fatal heart attack and succumbed to it in the presence of Megan. Initial reports suggested he had died at his desk at Rockefeller Center. The media corrected this faulty report sometime later. It then came to light that Rockefeller had actually breathed his last on another property he owned. This property was a townhouse at 13 West 54th Street. It immediately caught the attention of the press that, at the time of his demise, only Megan was present on the scene. Moreover, the fact that she reported the heart attack after the worst had already occurred raised further questions. Even the ambulance reached the scene only after an hour or so.
The Marshack and Rockefeller families sternly refused to comment on the unfortunate event. Reporters assaulted Megan with many questions as to what precisely had happened at the scene that day. However, she declined them all. Many investigators pieced together a rather scandalous version of events. This version still has plenty of traction to this day. It involved Rockefeller suffering a heart attack while he engaged in frantic sexual intercourse with his young mistress. When he died, she panicked very badly. Megan even put off calling an ambulance until an hour later.
Authorities closed the case with a final statement from the Rockefeller family saying that Megan and Rockefeller had engaged in no such scandalous play. His death was entirely due to natural causes. However, the late Vice President left a townhouse for his aide in his will. Megan Marshack became the woman in whose presence Nelson Rockefeller breathed his last under mysterious circumstances.
Megan moved on in her own time after that. She dated a cartoonist named Charles Addams and lived with him in his apartment, far from the public eye, after the incident of 1979. Furthermore, she continued her job as a journalist during this phase and tried to mend her life. Needless to say, the media trial and rumors affected her life a lot.
She dated a young cartoonist named Charles Addams for some time, and they reportedly broke up. In 2008, she married a journalist whose identity could not be established even after careful research. Perhaps they wish to remain in relative secrecy. After the incident of 1979, it is wise not to attract much attention. Both of them live in Southern California, United States. We have no information regarding her children and will update the site soon once we obtain it.
