parklandJorie Klein has a unique connection to November 22, 1963

“My name is Jorie Klein I am registered nurse. I actually had a chance to work with Doris Nelson as well as James Carrico, the physician for a number of years.”

Zac Efron portrays Dr. Carrico. Marcia Gay Harden portrays Nurse Nelson

“I heard stories about her being on duty the day John Kennedy was shot and brought here.”

Klein is now the Director of Trauma and Disaster Program at Parkland Hospital

“They shared the fact that they were extremely shocked by what happened and they talked about what it was like to not be able to save his life,” Klein said. “There are patients that you know that you can save and make a difference in their lives and there are patients that you know that you cannot save and according to them when president Kennedy came through those doors they knew that they could not save his life.”

Telling the world JFK was dead was difficult

“From that moment forward it was like, how do we prepare everybody else? How do we communicate this to the other people and especially the president’s wife?”

Klein will see the movie ‘Parkland’ on opening night in Dallas

“I cannot imagine being in their footsteps when they heard the president was actually en route to their hospital,” Klein said. “They were legends in their own time. They are legends now.”
