Jacob Daily

Jacob’s story, as told by his sister, Jennifer.

“My story is the story of two phone calls….I got the phone call that no one ever wants to receive. My 24-year-old brother Jacob Daily had been in a bad car accident, and it didn’t look like he would make it. When our family made the decision to donate Jake’s organs, corneas, bones, skin, and tissue, we knew other families would also receive phone calls, but ones they had been praying for. Jacob died a hero to many, including a 10-year-old girl who received one of his kidneys. Two individuals received his corneas including 28-year-old male from Arizona. Knowing my brother is a d donor hero, has comforted for my family and helped in our healing process. Jake will never be forgotten, and I know that many people are grateful for the gifts of sight and life that he gave them.
