21-Year-Old Dies Clutching A Bible & Preaching The Gospel To His Murderer

In Mark 16:15, Jesus says to his followers that they should “go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” That said, while it is the duty of every Christian to follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ, there is only a handful that really acts on His sermons. However, a devout Christian, Jared Plesec, was courageous enough to actually preach the Gospel to his own murderer!

Our inspiring story is about a 21-year-old worker in the Salvation Army who was recently shot dead in Cleveland by 27-year-old Willian Jones. Before his soul left for the heavenly abode, Jared continued to clutch his Bible tightly in his arms and declare the Gospel, “I’m Not Afraid. I Know Where I’m Going” in the face of death.

As a Bible study teacher at Collingwood’s Salvation Army Temple Corps Community Center, Jared actually died while doing what he loved so much- spreading God’s love to those around him. Following the incident, the Salvation Army released a statement saying, “Jared was an employee (youth worker) and church member of The Salvation Army Temple Corps Community Center in Collinwood. Jared died as he lived, sharing God’s love. Jared passed away in full Salvation Army uniform with his Bible in hand leaving home on his day off to volunteer at The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle.” For those that knew him well, Jared died doing exactly what he lived for that is to spread God’s love among His children.
