In a recent episode of “Today with Hoda & Jenna” discussed Jenna Bush Hager’s father-in-law’s funeral. She also shared a little snippet of her husband’s eulogy to his late father.


Jenna Bush Hager recently appeared on “Today with Hoda & Jenna” and opened up about attending her father-in-law’s funeral. The co-host told Hoda Kotb that they buried Henry Hager’s father over the weekend.

Bush Hager explained how they flew to celebrate her father-in-law’s life. She revealed how the service was only attended by close family members in the effort to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus disease.

Only five people were present including Bush Hager and her husband. John Hager was 83 when he passed away on August 23, 2020.

Jenna was moved by her husband's powerful eulogy to his father.


Henry’s father had served as the lieutenant governor of Virginia. He’d spent much of his adult life in a wheelchair after contracting polio in 1973.



Giving a snippet of her husband’s eulogy for her father-in-law, the co-host said: “His hands are no longer in pain, his arms are no longer in pain, and he's standing 6-foot-5-inches tall, smiling down." Bush Hager also noted how:

"I was so proud of my husband in that moment.”

The co-host’s husband also shared how his father had been his hero. Noting how he was wheelchair-bound, Henry touchingly stated that his father’s cape wasn’t easily visible because of his wheelchair.



Bush Hager confessed how her husband’s words were the most beautiful thing she’d ever heard. She then praised her husband’s writing skills.



On Monday, the television personality also took to Instagram to pay tribute to her late father-in-law. She shared several images of John with his wife and described him as a giant.



Another person who is dear to Bush Hager is her late grandfather former President George H. W. Bush. In June 2020, she honored him by celebrating what would have been his 96th birthday.


She paid tribute to Bush on the day with a throwback photo of herself with her grandfather and her twin sister Barbara Bush. The trio smiled happily in the photo where Bush appeared thrilled to be with his granddaughters.
