Four children aged six to 14 have been orphaned after vaccine firefighter and wife die from COVID

Four children aged six to 14 have been orphaned after their firefighter father and stay-at-home mother died of COVID-19.

Jeffrey Hager, who served 24 years with the Charlotte Fire Department and the Huntersville Fire Department, North Carolina, died Sept. 10 from complications from COVID.

On September 18, his wife Amee also succumbed to the virus.

Both were “anti-vaccine” and Amee had spoken out on Facebook against vaccine mandates.

The couple left behind four children, and Amee’s mother writes online, “I just pray that we can find the right words to tell Amee and Jeff’s precious children that both of their parents are now gone.”

Jeffrey Hager, who served 24 years with the Charlotte Fire Department and the Huntersville Fire Department, North Carolina, died Sept. 10 from complications from COVID.

Neither Jeff nor Amee appear to have been vaccinated and both were outspoken in their opposition to the jab.

Amee’s cousin wrote on Facebook that “Jeff was anti-vaccine, just like Amee.”

Amee had also used a Facebook border that read “I Stand For Medical Freedom” and “#StopTheMandate.”

So when they were both infected last month, the virus did its worst.

According to a caring bridge diary kept by Amee’s parents, Tina and Randy, both Jeffrey and Amee were admitted to a local hospital on August 28 with respiratory problems.

They received oxygen and other treatments until they were transferred to the ICU on September 3 and had to be placed on a ventilator.

Meanwhile, two out of three of their four children — who are aged six, seven, 13 and 14 — tested positive for COVID at home, although all recovered.

The children were cared for by relatives and were left in the dark about their parents’ deteriorating condition. Initially, they were only told that they had been hospitalized with breathing problems.

“When we picked up the kids after school, we were greeted with big smiles and lots of excitement for their first day of school after quarantine,” Tina and Randy wrote on Sept. 7.

On September 10, just hours before Jeff’s death, Amee’s parents visited him and Amee in the hospital.

“We were able to touch and hold their hands while telling them how much they are loved. We told them all about the kids and the funny things they say and do and that they missed them and want them to get well and come home,” they said.

“We told them to be strong and not to give up because their lives weren’t over yet.

“We shared all the love, prayers and support they received from family, friends, the fire service and the community. We told them to just focus on getting better, that you all had their backs. We cried and we prayed for their healing.’

But hours later, Jeff’s condition deteriorated and he died.

Jeffrey and Amee Hager were admitted to a local hospital on August 28 and were put on a ventilator within days.

Amee’s parents admitted that they struggled with how to tell the kids, and just a week later, Amee had passed away as well.

Her parents wrote that ‘with broken hearts we share this with you. Our dear Amee has lost the battle with this terrible Covid. She is no longer in pain and can no longer breathe. Her lungs are filled with the sweet breath of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.’

“I know Jeff stood at the gates of heaven with a sly smile, waiting to give her a big hug and a kiss!” they went on.

“Our hearts are shattered and there are no words to explain the pain and sorrow we feel. I just pray we can find the right words to tell Amee and Jeff’s precious children that both of their parents are gone now.”

The couple also urged others who have not been vaccinated to “please go get it.”

‘You cannot be replaced! Don’t leave your family to deal with this kind of pain and sorrow!’ they said.

A funeral was held for Jeff on September 23 and was attended by the Huntersville Fire Department.

In their most recent update, Tina and Randy said their seven-year-old grandson Jack has been “eager to help” ever since his parents got sick.

“He opens car doors, offers to carry things and even helps his siblings,” they wrote.

“But the ultimate example occurred yesterday as we sat listening to the funeral service.

“When we got to the cemetery, before we got out of the car, I asked who needed a tissue to take. Jack asked to carry one in his pocket.

“Later on the shift, with tears rolling down my cheeks, Jack looked up at me and reached into his pocket. A small rolled up handkerchief came out and he handed it to me with the sweet smile of an angel.

“At that moment I saw his mother and father so clearly in his eyes. So I took it from his sweet hand and wiped my tears.’
