It is a sad day at Edison State College as we grieve the loss of Jaime Lee DeSpirito. Jaime, 19, died in a car accident early Saturday morning in Fort Myers. Jaime was an Edison State College student studying to be a social worker.
“It is a very sad day for us,” said J. Dudley Goodlette, Interim District President of Edison State College. “We have lost a member of our Edison State family. We pray for the DeSpirito family and grieve for their terrible loss.”
A viewing takes place today from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Hodges Funeral Service at Lee Memorial Park in Fort Myers. The funeral service will be held Saturday at McGregor Baptist Church. The time has not been announced.
