"I feel like he, in life, might have been known as a bit of a snorer," the medium said. "Someone who snores," at which Jenna's eyes welled up with tears. 

Jenna was devastated when she lost John, and paid a heartfelt tribute to him after he passed. It read: "We lost my father-in-law, John Hager, Sunday morning," she wrote. "He was a giant of a man - although, I never saw him stand. He lived with polio — paralyzed from the waist down — in a wheel chair, for forty five years.

Despite it all he lived life to the fullest — and was compassionate, curious and kind. And boy, will we miss him but as Poppy said: 'He is in a better place - in heaven, out of his wheel-chair and running.'"
