Mike Miller's Wife Jennifer Miller

UPDATE: 05-25-2011: Mike Miller's wife Jennifer gave birth to their third child, Jaelyn Miller, just over a week ago. There were complications during childbirth that resulted in Mike Miller's daughter Jaelyn spending the last week in the ICU fighting an undisclosed illness. During game 4, Miller wore pink shoelaces in Jaelyn's honor, along with a promise from Heat president Pat Riley that he would pay if NBA fined Miller for a uniform violation. After the Heat's game 4 win in Chicago, which put them up 3-1 in the series and a virtual lock for the NBA Finals, Miller spoke about the situation, saying "She's still in ICU. She had some complications. But it's going to be all right. She's a fighter. She's the most important thing I'm thinking about right now." Judging by Miller's performance in that game, I think it's safe to say that he's comfortable that Jaelyn Miller will be fine.

Mike Miller's wife Jennifer Miller (formerly Jennifer or Jenni Keene) met the basketball star while attending the University of Florida, where she played volleyball (contrary to what you might read, she was an All-American in high school not at the U of F). Jennifer Keene was born in Italy, then lived in Georgia until she was 8 and finally moved west to Lodi, CA with her mother before attending the University of Florida for college (and to be closer to her father). Jennifer's mother, who lived in California, wanted to make sure that her daughter would be able to call her whenever she wanted while away at college in Florida. To ensure there was never anything to prevent this, her mother purchased an 800 number so that her daughter could reach her at any time for free. Pretty impressive. Mike and Jennifer's first date was on Halloween his freshmen year. After dating throughout college, they were married on July 5, 2004 at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas. Their first son, Mason Ace Miller, was born on October 22, 2002 and was soon followed by their second son, Mavrick Mayz Miller, on July 2, 2004. Mike Miller's daughter, Jaelyn Miller, was born on May 20, 2011.

Mike Miller and his wife Jennifer are incredibly generous with their money, donating over $1.5 million to the Sanford Children's Hospital in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, the Make-A-Wish Organization in both Tennessee and South Dakota as well as the Houston High School Athletic Program in Collierville, TN (where Jen was head coach at the time).

    Mr. and Mrs. Mike Miller

    Dear parents:

    In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit I am presenting to you my prophetic salutations. How are you? I hope everything is fine for you.
    Because Jesus says in psalm 91:1 ‘’ He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty

    It’s 3:00 AM when the Lord weak me up and told me to tell you: Believe and you will see his glory

    The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to you. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom to your CHILD HEALTH and release her from all of her sickness. He told me to lay my hands on her. If you believe, you will see to glory the Sovereign LORD.

    My husband and I were married on May 20, 2006 and my daughter (Jael Jean) was born on May 20, 2007 natural birth on our 1st wedding anniversary. She was born dead, but God has done a big miracle for us, five minutes after her birth the Lord gave life to her again. Jael is a powerful child, is a prayer warrior she can also pray for Jaelyn.

    May the Lord bless you more and more. Shalom! Shalom!

    Hi Jenni, I just saw the segment on your family while watching the Miami/Dallas playoff game. I can't tell you how wonderful it was to see you after all these years! You have a beautiful family and seeing you brought back so many memories of the Delta Valley Blue Volleyball Team. How could we ever forget those years? I am so sorry to hear about Jaelyn and I want you to know that I will keep her and your family in prayer ("For nothing is impossible with God" Matthew 19:26) Hello to your mother and family.

    Worked with you on a photo shoot in Memphis, at the Peabody, a few years ago. Watched the segment regarding you, your husband and your daughter. I was touched by your story and reflected on the conparisons to the Spences, a family in Memphis, who went thru something very similar with their first born, Forrest however theirs was the same ending. David and Brittany did not let this shake their faith. They,like you, realized how stressful it can be spending days and weeks in NICU and made a committment to create the best possible environment for other families who find themselves in such a critical and sad situation.. Thus the creation of the Forrest Spence Fund created to give support to families in NICU at LeBohner. Imagine your first born not coming home with you after a perfect pregnancy. But this couple is exceptional and are trying to bring comfort to other families living in the NICU. With nothing but faith and the determination to make Forrest few weeks on this earth count for something, they began the Foundation. Please email as I would like you and Brittany to meeet. Sincerely, Judy Strong
    I will attach both the website for the foundation as well as the latest interview with the couple on local television.
    Their efforts continue, as they are presently working to fund a "Siblings Room" a place where siblings can come, be with their parents and near their ill brother and sister. This room allows parents to have their entire family with them at times, which can be of great support. I know you understand.

    I am sorry, theirs was NOT the same ending and I can see that both you and Brittany with your love of family and understanding of both the desperation and fear these families have, can work together to make a difference in the lives of each family that finds themselves at LeBohner, Memphis, Tn.

    You can speak with Sandra Jones and she will confirm who I am.

    Best to you and your family and Happy Fathers Day to your husband.
