      Is jack la lanne dead?

      My mom thinks that jack la lanne died and I did a search online but I can't find anything about his death, there must be someone who can tell me for sure, I know this isn't all that fit for dreamviews but I figured I'd try and ask here

      Timeline: Jack LaLanne's Feats

      As reported on Jack LaLanne's Web site, and as documented consistently when they happened:

      * ** 1954 (age 40): Jack swam the entire length of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, underwater, with 140 pounds of equipment, including two air tanks. A world record.
      * ** 1955 (age 41): Jack swam from Alcatraz Island to Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco while handcuffed.
      * ** 1956 (age 42): Jack set a world record of 1,033 pushups in 23 minutes on You Asked for It, a television program with Art Baker.
      * ** 1957 (age 43): Jack swam the Golden Gate Channel while towing a 2,500-pound cabin cruiser. The swift ocean currents turned this one-mile swim into a swimming distance of 6.5 miles.
      * ** 1958 (age 44): Jack maneuvered a paddleboard nonstop from Farallon Islands to the San Francisco shore. The 30-mile trip took 9.5 hours.
      * ** 1959 (age 45): Jack did 1,000 pushups and 1,000 chin-ups in 1 hour, 22 minutes. His well-known white German shepherd, Happy, was born this year, the same year The Jack LaLanne Show went nationwide.
      * ** 1974 (age 60): For the second time, Jack swam from Alcatraz Island to Fisherman's Wharf. Again, he was handcuffed, but this time he was also shackled and towed a 1,000-pound boat.
      * ** 1975 (age 61): Repeating his performance 21 years earlier, Jack again swam the entire length of the Golden Gate Bridge, underwater and handcuffed, but this time he was shackled and towed a 1,000-pound boat.
      * ** 1976 (age 62): To commemorate the "Spirit of '76", United States Bicentennial, Jack swam one mile in Long Beach Harbor. He was handcuffed and shackled, and he towed 13 boats (representing the 13 original colonies) containing 76 people.
      * ** 1979 (age 65): Jack towed 65 boats in Lake Ashinoko, near Tokyo, Japan. He was handcuffed and shackled, and the boats were filled with 6,500 pounds of Lousiana Pacific wood pulp.
      * ** 1980 (age 66): Jack towed 10 boats in North Miami, Florida. The boats carried 77 people, and he towed them for over one mile in less than one hour.
      * ** 1984 (age 70): Once again handcuffed and shackled, Jack fought strong winds and currents as he swam 1.5 miles while towing 70 boats with 70 people from the Queen's Way Bridge in the Long Beach Harbor to the Queen Mary.
      * ** 1992 (age 78): Jack received the Academy of Body Building and Fitness Award.
      * ** 1994 (age 80): Jack received the State of California Governor's Council on Physical Fitness Lifetime Achievement Award.
      * ** 1996 (age 82): Jack received the Dwight D. Eisenhower Fitness Award.
      * ** 1999 (age 85): Jack received the Spirit of Muscle Beach Award.
      * ** 2002 (age 88): Jack received a star on the Hollywood Boulevard Walk of Fame.
      * ** 2004 (age 90): Jack celebrated his 90th birthday in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. ESPN Classic ran a 24-hour marathon of the original Jack LaLanne television shows.
      * ** 2005 (age 91): Jack received the Jack Webb Award from the Los Angeles Police Historical Society, the Arnold Classic Lifetime Achievement Award, Interglobal's International Infomercial Award, the Freddie, and the Medical Media Public Service Award, and he was a Free Spirit honoree at Al Neuharth's Freedom Fourm.
      You know, I was just thinking about that old guy a few weeks ago, wondering where the hell he's gone to. Apparently he was alive last year. Who knows what could have happened between then and now, though. Heh. But I think he's still kickin.

      I was wondering if I could stand to do what he does, probly not he takes about 50 supplements per day, and eats alot of yucky stuff, if an ordinary guy like me did that, I'd just get laughed at, I always wanted to live past 100 in good shape, but I'm not a millionaire like jack
