Jack Frazier

Jack Frazier (1937-2003) was an American man who was taken hostage in 1990 by Saddam Hussein's forces in Baghdad. He was a diabetic.

Frazier was denied his insulin medication during his time as a hostage, which was close to one month. This affected him seriously, as he ended up losing both of his legs as well as eyesight from one of his eyes as a consequence. Frazier was confined to a wheelchair.

Frazier sued the republic of Iraq in 1991, and in April of 2003, Frazier was given the sum of 1 million, 750,000 dollars as compensation. He was one of 180 people to successfully sue the Republic of Iraq.

Frazier moved to Nevada after his ordeal. On June 2 of 2003, he died in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, of a strange disease that was tied to his condition as a diabetic.
