Fun-loving and passionate, Jake Whisenhunt the father of two beautiful children, loving husband, brother, son, and faithful friend was in a tragic car accident on September 23rd, 2020 that has left him fighting for his life in the trauma intensive care unit at Emanuel Hospital in Portland.
Jake's injuries resulted in a severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) and diffuse axonal injury (DAI), burns to his body that led to having both legs amputated above the knee and 4 fingers on his left hand.
He spent 2 months at Legacy Emanual hospital where he underwent a craniotomy to relieve pressure from his brain. A surgery to replace this bone led to an infection of a superbug. He had to be on antibiotics for 2 months. He eventually transferred to Vibra Specialty Hospital where he still resides (as of 01/27/2021) . He's on a feeding tube. He still has a trach but breathes on his own.
He's scheduled for surgery again on February 8th to replace the bone flap missing from his head. This will be synthetic as the last bone led to the infection.
