OBITUARY The Honorable Jesse Edison Hines, Sr. answered the divine call from God , on Sunday, September 1, 2013. The leader of the Hines' family, beloved husband, father, grandfather, and brother was born in Florence County on May 23, 1933. He was the devoted son of Columbus Hines and Amy Hines McAllister. Jesse received his primary education at Elim Elementary School in Effingham, SC. He then attended Wilson High School in Florence, graduating in 1951. In the spring of 1951, Jesse enrolled at South Carolina State College and graduated with a Bachelor of Science and Agriculture degree in 1955.

He completed Basic Training at Ft. Jackson, SC and deployed to Korea in support of the Korean Conflict for fourteen months and three days. He was discharged honorably on April 15, 1959. Shortly after reintegration with his family, Jesse went to work as an Agriculture teacher at Spaulding High School for 18 years. Over the years, Jesse taught, trained and was a mentor to many. His students, of the Future Farmers of America Organization, were outstanding and competed throughout the State, amassing several first place awards over the years. D uring this time, Jesse saw a need in the community. In 1963, he broke ground on the first of two coin operated laundromats and a beauty salon. A business leader was born. In order to strategically prepare for a career in administration, Jesse continued his studies at South Carolina State and received his Master's Degree in Education, in 1967. He then completed his Masters plus 30 hours, for certification in administration, at the University of South Carolina and Clemson. In 1977, Jesse was selected to serve as the Vocational Director for the Lee County Career and Technology Center.

Armed with the knowledge of basic government principles, Jesse was prepared to tackle the future assignment of serving as a member of the South Carolina General Assembly. He was elected to represent House District 62 in 1991 and served for fourteen years. While in office, his main focus was to address the issues that affected the district he represented. Often times, he was met with fierce opposition but he never wavered from the voices of the constituents he served.

He was famous for his teachable moments. He loved South Carolina State and was an avid financial supporter. Jesse was a spiritual leader and understood not by sight but by faith. His mantra was simply, "Stay Ready and You Won't Have to Worry about Getting Ready --- Anticipate the Next Play." J esse's family was his dearest asset.
