FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The family of Officer Adam Jobbers-Miller, the Fort Myers Police Department and Lee Health are partnering to host a blood drive in Jobbers-Miller’s memory.

The three-day blood drive kicks off with a ceremonial flag-raising followed by opening remarks from the Jobbers-Miller family, Fort Myers Police Chief Derrick Diggs, Lee Memorial Hospital executive Dr. Scott Wolf and a chaplain from Lee Health.

The flag-raising ceremony begins at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, July 22 at Lee Memorial Hospital.

The blood drive then begins at 9 a.m. Monday and Tuesday until 3 p.m. at Lee Memorial.

Then on Wednesday, the blood drive takes place at the Fort Myers Police Department from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.

Officer Jobbers-Miller was shot in the line of duty last July, 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 three 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 Ft. Myers.
