Jack Bauer: How did Jack Bauer’s wife die?
Jack Bauer (played by Kiefer Sutherland) was the star of 24, a drama which ran for nine seasons until it came to an end more than a decade ago. But even now, fans still talk about 24 as the series is available to purchase on Amazon Prime. One tragic element of the show which sticks out in fans’ minds is what happened to Jack’s wife Teri (Leslie Hope).
Jack and Teri met after he left the army and she was working as a graphic artist in Los Angeles.
The couple soon got married and had daughter Kimberly Bauer (Elisha Cuthbert) 15 years prior to the events of season one.
Six months before the series, Jack and Teri decided to separate and he had an affair with CTU (Counter Terrorist Unit) colleague Nina Myers (Sarah Clarke).
Just before the premiere, Jack moved back into his family home so he and Teri could start repairing their relationship.

Jack was called into work in the first episode of 24 series one as there had been an assassination attempt on presidential candidate Senator David Palmer (Dennis Haysbert).
While Jack was at the office though, Kim and later on wife Teri were kidnapped by Ira Gaines (Michael Massee) who wanted to blackmail Jack into assisting with the assassination.
Thankfully, with the help of Nina and fellow agent Tony Almeida (Carlos Bernard), Kim and Teri were rescued mostly unharmed.
In the process though, a major secret was discovered which resulted in Teri’s death.
Jack discovered Nina was corrupt, selling government information to foreign buyers.
He informed CTU of this and she lost her job and her deep cover in the process and so wanted revenge.
Nina captured Teri and shot her in the chest at CTU but when Jack realised his wife was in danger, it was too late as she was already dead.
Still strapped to the chair, Jack cradled Teri’s lifeless body in his arms as he cried and repeatedly said sorry to her.
