Jonas Brothers Visit Four Diamonds Teen at Hershey Medical Center

Four Diamonds teen Lily Jordan got the surprise of a lifetime on Saturday night.

Before their concert at Hersheypark Stadium, the Jonas Brothers stopped by Penn State Hershey Medical Center to visit the 16-year-old in her hospital room.

Last winter, Jordan got tickets to the concert, but realized recently that she would be in the hospital receiving chemotherapy on Saturday and wouldn't be able to go. She shared that on Instagram and it was quickly shared far and wide by people encouraging the band to visit her.

"It made me feel so loved, and so happy that I was like 'at this point if they don't show up it doesn't even matter,'" she said in a video posted by Penn State Hershey.

While Jordan couldn’t attend the concert, she did get some one-on-one face time with all three of the brothers, who also signed autographs and posed for photos with her.

"They were so nice, so cool," she said. "Earlier this evening I was feeling really sick. I have been feeling sick and kind of sad. But things like that make a week that has been kind of not great into something that has been like a life-changing experience."


Visiting Jordan at Hershey Medical Center was just one part in a very busy day for Joe Jonas. He said he’d be tailgating around Happy Valley before Saturday’s football game between Penn State and Idaho, and he took that a step further by showing up at Beaver Stadium to take in the Nittany Lions’ 79-7 victory over the Vandals.

During the game, Jonas was introduced to the crowd alongside former Penn State football stars Miles Sanders and Shareef Miller, who both made the Philadelphia Eagles’ final 53-man roster out of training camp. Jonas got the loudest cheer out of the trio during a media timeout, and he led a “We Are” chant with the 104,000-plus who attended Saturday’s game.


Joe, Nick, and Kevin will be back in Happy Valley for a concert at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Bryce Jordan Center. This will be the brothers’ second BJC performance as a band, and Joe’s third appearance at the arena. He performed at THON 2017 along with DNCE before showing up at Champs Downtown for a surprise performance there. The brothers most recently gave a surprise performance at Champs in April.
