Tyler Jacob’s Mother, American Teacher Hostaged by Russians in Ukraine, Speaks Out: “I don’t sleep”


Russians hold an American teacher hostage in Ukraine. Tyler Jacob (28 years old) from Winona, Minnesota was taken hostage while he tried fleeing the war-torn country.

Tina Hauser is Tina’s mother and she appeals for her son’s release.

“I am beyond terrified. It is a mother’s worst nightmare coming true. I don’t sleep, and I’m just clinging to my phone hoping that I’ll get a message from him saying, ‘Hey mom, I’m here,’”Hauser.

It’s not known where Jacob is being held. Hauser said that she last spoke to Jacob on Saturday morning.

“He was very scared. I could hear the scared and the fear in his voice,”Hauser. 

James Hill, a psychologist from Idaho aged 67, has been confirmed as dead. The professor was in Kyiv teaching at a college and was taken to Chernihiv hospital. 

In final Facebook posts, Hill wrote: “It’s a living nightmare…Bombing has intensified. No way out.”
