Jaclyn Fraley recently reached her goal of raising $125,000 to buy back her grandfather’s home.
John Potter, a 91-year-old WWII vet, had been living in his Zaleski, Ohio, home for over fifty years. In 2004, he gave power of attorney to his daughter, who then transferred the property to herself. Potter’s daughter then attempted to evict him following a dispute between the two over visitation rights to Potter’s autistic son. Fraley then launched a successful fundraising campaign on GoFundMe to save his house.
