Fox 5 recently reported on Jason Carter’s update on his grandfather Jimmy Carter’s health. While speaking at the 28th Rosalynn Carter Georgia Mental Health Forum, Jason Carter spoke of a recent visit to Plains. “My grandfather is doing OK. He has been in hospice, as you know, for some, almost a year and a half now. And he really is, I think, coming to the end.”

He talked about his grandfather’s spiritual state. “As I’ve said before, there’s a part of this faith journey that is so important to him. And there’s a part of that faith journey that you only can live at the very end, and I think he has been there in that space.”

Jason mentioned how he was unsure how to respond to inquires of his grandfather’s health, to which Jimmy Carter responded with good humor: “Well, I don’t know myself.”

When asked how President Jimmy Carter was doing his niece Kim Fuller responded “As well as can be expected”, declining further comment.
