Dying Daughter Gets to See her Dad Jason Yaeger One Last time … Dying Jayci Yaeger’s Wish to see her Dad


Some times we really get it right. This time it was all about the child. Jayci Yaeger’s dying wish was to see her father. The problem was that he was serving prison time on a drug related charge.

Jayci Yaeger’s dying wish came true. God bless Jayci.

A 10-year-old Nebraska girl with terminal brain cancer had a simple last wish: to have her dad by her side as she lay on her death bed.

On Wednesday, seemingly against all odds, Jayci Yaeger’s wish came true.

UPDATE I: 10 Year Old Jayci Yaeger has passed away

On Friday morning at 1:47am, 10 year old Jayci Yaeger lost her battle with brain cancer and passed away. Just 2 days after her dying wish was granted and she was allowed to see her dad one last time, Jayci went to see her eternal father. God bless you Jayci, may you rest in peace.

“I think Jayci was hanging on for her daddy . She just let go after she knew daddy was here to be with her. We’re glad that she got to be with him one last time,” said Ed Yaeger, Jayci’s uncle.

Family members say Jayci was hanging by a thread, fighting just long enough to see her father one last time. When Jayci’s dad, Jason, was allowed to travel from prison in South Dakota to see his daughter in Lincoln, family members say Jayci could finally let go.

“We’re happy that it was peaceful and that she is no no longer in pain, and her suffering is over,” Ed Yaeger said.

      What a heart-rending story.

      In a Dickens novel, an incident such as this would shock the criminal into wanting to lead a better life. Let’s hope that this is the result here as well.

      I don’t really like drug dealers.However his crime is a non violent crime.I would be for a early release and give him probation.Drug test his a lot.So he could be with his daughter.They release worst people than him.I believe this can and would bring him and his family closer to Jesus.

      Jayci lost her battle at 1:47 a.m. Friday, 3/28/08, just 36 hours after her dad’s visit.

      Rest in peace little angel.

      What a sad story.
      I agree with Jack that he did not commit a violent crime and should be let out a few months early. And like Richard said let’s hope that he can turn his life around.
      God bless them through their loss.

      I’m thankful somebody had a heart enough to let this man out to see his precious girl, one last time. How often does something like this happen?

      It is no coincidence that the warden had such a sudden change of heart.

      It was due to The O’Reilly Factor broadcast of this story, and the mention that if the warden didn’t grant the temporary visit, that O’Reilly was going to send one of his producers to ask the warden why.

      In the end, the warden did the right thing, but it took a TV news analyst to make him do it.

      God Rest Her Soul.

      See what happens when parents f u? The innocent children suffer.

      Truly a sad sad day! Rest in peace Jayci.

      As a father of 2 young daughters it reminds me how precious and fragile life really is.

      WIth that said… here is a FACT

      Only fools would state and be so naive to think that drugs and that associated community are not, directly or indirectly, fueling violence.

    11. bob on April 1st, 2008 9:51 am

      No, only fools let people know how ignorant they are by posting silly comments like yours. The fact is that drug addicts should be “treated” NOT be made criminals. It is a fact in the rest of the world where they treat the drug addict and do not criminalize them, they have less violence than us. We have more laws against drugs and more people in prisons for drugs then the whole world combined, and we still have the most violence. Keeping this man in prison and away from his dying child did not make this country any safer. Hopefully Jesus will protect you and you will never have to know the hell on earth this man has went through. Ignorance is bliss, keep praying.
