I can't believe no one mentioned the real "Pops", the father of modern jazz, Louis Armstrong.
We gotta leave some room for others to chime in.
Al Hirt probably had the most trumpet-playing commercial hits during the 60's, appeared on numerous TV shows, won a few Grammys, and was well known by the general population. He was a fantastic trumpet player, too.

sorry about the Wayne mess up.. the album I was thinking actually had Chet Baker paying on it
I can't believe I didn't think of Raphael Mendez .. he was incredibly gifted
The posts below cover well into the jazz world. More pop related trumpeters that played in rock bands would be:
Lew Soloff - Blood Sweat and Tears
Lee Loughnane - Chicago
Since you're also looking for somebody that's easy to find information about, I'd go for Miles .... One of the biggest trumpeters, overall, with loads of information about him, recordings, footage, etc.
