Husband of Irish NY lottery winner Patricia Eisel misses out
Friends say he moved out on mother of 3, has a new romance
Patricia Daly Eisel was shattered when she and her husband Jamie Eisel split last year, but after the mother of three won $21.5m on the New York State Lottery, it may be his turn to cry.
Jamie Eisel, an ironworker and part-time bartender, continues to live near his 40-year-old wife and children in Long Beach, New York, but has moved on to a new romance.
The question is whether he is likely to try laying claim to Patricia’s winnings.
‘They’re still good friends,’ said a neighbor.
‘They share the kids between them. As far as I know, it’s all very amicable.’
‘He left her,’ said a Tullamore resident who knows the family. ‘It will be interesting now to see if he will go and seek a share of the win.’
Meanwhile Trisha, as she is called, took a break from her job at The Saloon bar and spent this weekend celebrating her good fortune with her family in Tullamore.
She booked the best suite in the local hotel to celebrate.
She only won the jackpot because her flight home to Ireland had been canceled due to the severe weather before Christmas, so she was in New York to buy the lottery ticket that won her $21,500,000.
About the difference her new found fortune will make to her life, she told the Daily Mail: ‘I have been in America since ’95. I babysat at first and right now I live in Long Beach. I waitress and bar-tend and mind kids.
‘It’s a struggle to keep it all together but it’s good – the bar’s good where I work. But this is going to make it a lot better.’
She has sworn ‘to keep life normal, no big purchases’. She even said she’d keep working ‘for a while.’
