Did Jack really have to die to save Rose at the end of Titanic?

SPOILER: A memorable moment of the movie Titanic was Jack's death. But was this a critical plot point? Did Jack really have to die to save Rose? Does this really make sense for the storyline?

Yes, Jack had to die to save Rose in the Titanic

Jack's death was a necessary artistic choice

Jack would have died of hypothermia before implementing any solution

The door would sink under the weight of 2 people

The stressful situation meant that they couldn't think of a solution

No, Jack did not have to die to save Rose in the Titanic

The door was big enough for 2 people

Rose could have given him her lifejacket

The door would hold both of them if they tied a life jacket to the bottom
