Jacob Myers III, 44, husband of Karen-Reaves-Myers, departed this life on Saturday, June 20 2015 at Carolinas Hospital System, Center, Florence. Born January 3, 1971, in Sumter County, he was the son of Jacob Myers, Jr., and the late Hattie Mae Grant Myers.

He knew God and loved the Lord with his whole heart. But, on June 19, 2015, he took his relationship with God deeper. On this day, he received a revelation of Genesis 32:24-26.
