Jacque Lang and her husband, Terry Francona, were married on January 9, 1982. They had dated before getting married. They were divorced in 2011, but it wasn’t publicized why they split. During the baseball season, Terry Lang stayed at a hotel and moved out of Jacque Lang’s Brookline home.
Lang was an active member of many clubs and organizations, including the Rowfant Club, the Oakwood Club, and the City Club. She married Frances Elizabeth Wise in 1935, and the couple had two children. Lang donated her correspondence to Case Western Reserve University. She died in Cleveland Heights and is buried in Mayfield Cemetery.
Lang is also a friend of French culture minister Francois Hollande, who appointed her president of the Arab World Institute, a cultural center in Paris. Lang has been a special adviser to Ban Ki-Moon when he was secretary-general of the U.N. in 2008. In 2008, Epstein pleaded guilty to solicitation of prostitution of a minor, and was sentenced to 18 months in prison in Florida. He was also forced to register as a sex offender. Despite the scandal, Lang is a staunch supporter of Woody Allen, whose films have been accused of sexual abuse by Dylan Farrow.
As a cultural minister, Lang has expanded her portfolio and made cultural life accessible to the masses. She helped create the popular street music festival that attracts amateur musicians. Today, it is one of the largest cultural events in the country. The festival draws in hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. In fact, it is the only one of its kind in France.
While serving as premier of New South Wales, Lang was an outspoken critic of James Henry Scullin’s economic policies. Her opposition to Scullin’s policies contributed to the defeat of Scullin in 1931. She also opposed the federal Labor government’s deflationary policies.
