Replacement key w/o orignals

I recently lost the last remaining original key to my WJ (bought used, only came with 1 in the first place) and only have an unprogrammed spare to go off of. Is there a way to program it without the 2 originals? Or do I have to go to a dealership? Or does anyone have the hookup that I could send the cut key and get them to program it with the VIN?

Dealer or locksmith. They'll need the Jeep, so you're better off with a mobile locksmith unless you have free towing.

Dealer and some locksmiths. I took mine to the dealer and it only costed $35 to have the key cut and programmed. I called a couple of locksmiths but they said they didn't have the right programmer, because technically the jeep is programmed to the key, and not the other way around.
