A longtime community leader from Columbus County passed away Sunday afternoon while giving a sermon in Wilmington.

According to family members, Pastor Jessie Graham had a massive heart attack in the pulpit of Myrtle Grove First Born Church of the Living God Sunday.  He was 78 years old.

Anyone who knew Graham would tell you he’s a man who loved God.  They say it’s only fitting he died doing what he loved, in the church that he loved.
