Here Are Some Key Facts
Cameron participated in a National Geographic special, Titanic: 25 Years Later With James Cameron, to celebrate the movie’s 25th anniversary.

The director had the Rose stunt actor give her life jacket to Jack, but this scene does not happen in the film.
Here is what Cameron said about this situation:
If this had happened, Jack would have been “stabilized” and “got into a place where if we projected that out, he just might’ve made it until the lifeboat got there.
Also, the character would not allow this to happen. The stunt actors tested out one theory that both Jack and Rose could have lived. In the meantime, another approach is that only the upper bodies were positioned on the raft above the water. Cameron said that Jack could have lasted for hours that way, but he considered how tired the characters would be after getting off the boat, and both of them would suffer.
The final verdict is that Jack might have lived, but based on the situation, the raft will be smaller, so there is no doubt.
