Three Day Blood Drive in Honor of Fallen Fort Myers Police Department Officer Adam Jobbers-Miller Kicks-off Tuesday Morning

 

WHO: The family of Officer Adam Jobbers-Miller, the Fort Myers Police Department and Lee Health are partnering to host the 2nd annual blood drive in Jobbers-Miller’s memory.

WHAT: The three-day blood drive kicks off with a ceremonial flag raising followed by opening remarks from the Jobbers-Miller family, Fort Myers Police Deputy Chief Jeffery Meyers, Lee Memorial Hospital Executive Dr. Scott Wolf and a chaplain from Lee Health. Following the opening ceremony, these speakers will be available for interviews.

Officer Jobbers-Miller was shot in the line of duty in July 2018, and spent a week at Lee Memorial Hospital before passing from his injuries. In partnership with FMPD and Lee Health, the Jobbers-Miller family is organizing the blood drive to make a difference in our community in honor of their lost loved one.

A single blood donation can save as many as two lives, and the Southwest Florida community is encouraged to make life-saving donations as we remember the service and sacrifice of Officer Jobbers-Miller.

All blood donors will receive an Officer Adam Jobbers-Miller t-shirt in memory of his brave service to the City of Fort Myers.
