Adam Jobbers-Miller ceremony remembers the fallen officer 1 year later
July 28, 2019 marks one year since Fort Myers Police Officer Adam Jobbers-Miller died from injuries he endured in the line of duty.
Family members, brothers and sisters in blue and community members gathered to honor and remember Jobber-Miller Sunday.
The community gathered at 5:14 p.m. to listen to the end-of-watch call followed by a few moments of silence for Jobbers-Miller. And family members gathered around the spot where an officer pointed out their loved one had been shot on Flint Street.
Officer’s end-of-watch call: “Fighting for his life for seven days, Officer Jobbers-Miller succumbed to his injuries on July 28 at 5:14 pm. Number 524 gone but never forgotten.”
Fort Myers Police Department says it was on Flint St. Jobbers-Miller was shot in the head by Wisner Desmaret. This was after Jobbers-Miller responded to a disturbance call at the Marathon gas station across MLK.
Sunday, Flint Street was lined with countless patrol cars, a testament of support from law enforcement for Jobbers-Miller and a sign of the impact left on the community he served and protected.
A year later, there is still evidence of the shots fired.
Jobbers-Miller, a firefighter turned police officer, worked for the Fort Myers Police Department for nearly three years.
Jobbers-Miller hailed from the township of Wayne, New Jersey, where he was a graduate of Wayne Valley High School.
