Annie Cooper is the wife of Jason Cooper.


Annie's husband, Jason, had severe juvenile arthritis which caused his jaw to fuse as well as three of his vertebrae. He'd been on a feeding tube for eight months. He was meant to have surgery that day to break his jaw and insert titanium hinges, but Ben and Derek didn't want to because his condition made it difficult to sedate him safely. Mark pressed them to operate sooner rather than later because Jason had an abscess in his mouth. He challenged Ben and Derek to come up with a solution to their problem. Their first proposal was a foam block, but it lacked the necessary flexibility in case of emergency. Then Derek came up with the idea to use a bean bag, so the surgery went on as planned.

The surgery was successful.



She is married to Jason Cooper.
