Sue chose not to be interviewed or photographed for this year's 25th anniversary swimsuit issue (the photo above was taken for USA Today), but she allowed Jack to speak for her. "It's just not her thing," he says.
Sue's modeling career lasted a little more than a year. After the swimsuit issue she did commercials in New York. Offers to appear in movies followed, but Sue had other things in mind. While she was working in Manhattan, she lived for five months with Campbell and her husband, Ron, and their young son. "She would make things like tablecloths and lingonberry jam for friends," says Campbell. "We took her to the country with us on weekends, and she fell in love with our farm and planted an herb garden. In the country everybody loved her. She was a ray of sunshine, a very up person. She was pretty and probably had potential—she was quite natural in front of the camera—but she never wanted to be a model. She wanted to be a housewife."
According to Jack, Sue has changed very little physically in the 24 years since she appeared on SI's cover. "She probably weighs four pounds more than she did then," he says. "She takes care of herself."
Jack's only complaint is that Sue's everyday uniform, blue jeans and baggy sweaters, disguises the fact too well. "She still has the same gorgeous figure she did then," he says. "But nobody on Bainbridge Island even knows she has a waist."
