August 2, 2018
Pine Island Eagle

Fort Myers Police Officer Adam Jobbers-Miller will be honored and remembered at a service to be held Monday at Germain Arena, a Southwest Florida venue large enough to house the expected turnout of friends, family and the first responder community.

The untimely and tragic passing of Jobbers-Miller, who died in the line of duty, has left a family without a son, a fiancee without a husband and a police department without a brother.

This Sunday, a viewing will be held at Gendron Funeral Home in Fort Myers from 5-9 p.m. The viewing is open to the public.

The funeral will begin at Germain Arena at noon on Monday. The service is also open to the public.

A member of the FMPD since September 2015, Jobbers-Miller was a life-long public servant, as he was a volunteer firefighter in his home state of New Jersey where his father served as fire chief of Wayne Fire Company No. 2 for 30 years.

He was also a member of the Wayne Township Memorial First Aid Squad.

He is survived by his mother Patricia Miller and father David Miller, two sisters Nicole and Athena, brother Keith, fiancee Jamie, his grandparents Edward and Marion Miller, grandmother Valerie Locascio, as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.

Jobbers-Miller loved his family, fiancee Jamie, her son, being a member of FMPD, friends, home and the New Orleans Saints, his obituary states.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be donated to Fort Myers Fallen Officers Police Foundation Inc. or the Fort Myers Police "PAL" League at 2210 Widman Way in Fort Myers.

On July 21, Jobbers-Miller, along with other Fort Myers Police Department officers, responded to a call involving a stolen cell phone near a Marathon Gas station.

A struggle between Jobbers-Miller and the suspect in the phone theft ensued with the man knocking Jobbers-Miller down, grabbing his gun, and shooting him in the head, then firing at another officer.

Jobbers-Miller fought for his life inside Lee Memorial Hospital for a week before succumbing to his injuries.

The suspect, Wisner Desmaret, remains in custody in Lee County Jail where he is facing nine charges, including two counts of first-degree murder, according to the arrest report.

"It is with a heavy heart that we inform our community that Fort Myers Police Officer Adam Jobbers-Miller has passed away as a result of the injuries sustained on Saturday, July 21. We ask that you continue to pray for Officer Jobbers-Miller's family, friends and our entire Fort Myers Police Department Family," stated the release from FMPD announcing Jobbers-Miller's death

Police agencies throughout Lee County and across the state have shown their support of the FMPD through social media posts and fundraising opportunities.

Cape Coral Police Department shared these sentiments: "The Cape Coral Police Department is extremely saddened about the passing of FMPD Officer Adam Jobbers-Miller. We are all family and this hurts us all. Please pray for and keep Adam's family, friends, community, and the FMPD family in your thoughts."

Gendron Funeral Home is at 2325 East Mall Drive, in Fort Myers.

Germain Arena is at 11000 Everblades Parkway in Estero.
