FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Fox 4 has gone through the personnel files of Officer Adam Jobbers-Miller to get some insight into his work and life history.

His supervisors, colleagues, and friends described him to be hardworking, dependable, caring and honest.

The Wayne Township Fire Department in New Jersey made a radio announcement Monday night for their fallen brother, Adam Jobbers-Miller.

He was a firefighter there for six years and came from a family committed to service.

Following a week of fighting for his life, Adam suddenly passed away Saturday night. Adam was a former 6-year member of Company 2 before relocating to Florida in 2015. He was the son of Company 2 ex-chief and life member Dave Miller and brother of former Wayne’s first aid member Nicole Miller. Services will be held later this week in Fort Myers, Florida followed by a memorial service. Please keep the entire Miller family and Fort Myers Police department in your thoughts and prayers during the time."

He then left to pursue his dream of being a police officer in Fort Myers and eventually wanted to move into the role of detective.

His supervisors, colleagues, and friends say he always wanted to help others and that's why he wanted to be a police officer.

In his job application for the Fort Myers Police Department, he said his #1 goal was to remove drug dealers from the streets. That's because he said his brother died from an overdose.

While on the job, Adam received an outstanding review for his performance and proved to be a good officer.

He was named “Employee of the Month” in 2016.

In a press release, the police department says they will never get over losing Adam.

Officer Jobbers-Miller died Saturday from injuries sustained in a shooting on duty one week before.
