“Wiggles”

Jake Waggoner has recently been informed by doctors he has six months to live. Jake and his wife Selamawit are the parents of a beautiful little girl, and are currently expecting their second child around the time doctors have told Jake he will pass away. To many Jake is a father, husband, son, brother, and a friend. I know him best as the United States Marine I have had the privilege of serving beside for the past six years. Wiggles, as Jake has come to be known by his fellow Marines, has definitely left his mark on those he’s come in contact with over the years. His uncanny ability to alleviate any situation with his unique brand of humor and larger than life personality is what I’ve come to admire the most about him. This quality of Jake’s was a God send during our deployment to Iraq with Combat Logistics Battalion 1 in August, 2006, through March, 2007.

Whether you’ve known Jake your whole life, or have simply been fortunate enough to have had your paths cross, we encourage you to add to his story. Share a memory, or an experience you’ve shared with Jake. Let the world know what kind of a man Jake Waggoner is. Most importantly, we encourage you to donate whatever you can, be it your time or your money, to ensure Jake’s final days are ones in which he doesn’t need to worry about the family he leaves behind. Thank you for your support, and may God and his blessings be with the Waggoners in their time of need.

PUYALLUP, Wash.  – Nestled in a Puyallup cul-de-sac, Jacob Waggoner and his family are living in his sister’s house. A small upstairs bedroom is now their home. It’s not the life they’d hoped for.

“We had so much planned,” said Selam Waggoner as she fights back tears.

The Waggoners downsized last month after receiving the diagnosis, Jacob has terminal brain cancer.

“They gave me six months to live,” he said.

Those in his Marine unit say it almost seems cruel. Jacob survived a tour in Iraq as a reservist. He made it back home, married Selam and had Bella, who’s now almost 2. Then last November, he began having seizures. Around the same time, Selam found out she was pregnant.

“I was concerned about my family definitely and how I’m going to take care of them in the future,” said Jacob.

Jacob’s Marine brothers are now mobilizing to make certain Jacob’s family is cared for.

“You wouldn’t leave your brother to die in a house fire,” said Joshua Penner. “We’re not going to let Jake struggle, we’re going to help him out.” more at king5News

Soldiers’ Angels here in Washington is waiting on word for the next phase of help for Jake to be Launched so we can dig in and help.  In the meantime please help spread the word. Go to the website and work your social media and other networking magic to engage support for this Marine.
