Tactical Response YouTuber, James Yeager Dies
According to sources, James “MF” Yeager died this morning, September 2, 2022. His death is presumed to be the result of his long battle with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, better known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease); however, no official declaration has been made.
James’s business, Tactical Response, was a household name in the firearms market. However, before his teaching career, he had quite an interesting history. While in law enforcement in the early 1990s, Yeager served in several drug task force groups and undercover squads. In 1996, he was still serving his country in law enforcement, this time as a patrolman and K-9 handler for the Big Sandy Police Department. A few years later, he served as Big Sandy’s police chief.

In addition to serving as the Camden Police Department‘s Firearms and Tactics Instructor, this individual’s law enforcement experience also includes serving in many other capacities. Around the turn of the millennium, James was employed in Baghdad on protective security details.
He went to Ukraine in the spring of 2022 to volunteer his skills as a trainer for about 150 troops there. Colleagues squad and his from Tactical Response say they arrived in the city after it was already surrounded by 95%.
James has his hands in just about every part of the firearms business throughout the course of his long career. He continued to work nonstop as the onset of ALS advanced.
Here’s some information about Yeager that you won’t find in his bio. It doesn’t say that if he knew you and saw you at a business event, he would act like it was the coolest thing ever. He had a larger-than-life persona. James was the center of attention whenever he entered a room. Even if you didn’t agree with everything he said or did, you had to respect his dedication to his work, his enthusiasm for his teaching, and the way he treated his colleagues and students as friends, no matter how well you knew them.
James requested that his death go unannounced. He asked his friends and family not to publish “dumbshit social media postings on my birthday” or “cry over him.”
