MSF/ELWA Hospital in Monrovia on Friday, September 5, 2014 at about noon. According to Morris Jarkloh, Jr., the son of the deceased, his late father suffered hypertension and every attempt to seek help at several hospitals proof futile. “Most of the hospitals we visited told us they did not have space while others told us they could not handle his situation,” Mr. Jarkloh said.  He also said the attempt to get his late father into hospital started on Thursday, September 4, 2014.

The Late Rev. Jarkloh’s body is at the MSF/ELWA Hospital awaiting results of tests to determine whether his death is not Ebola related.

He was 61 years.

There is no indication that his death is Ebola related.

His former Cabinet colleague, Rev. Morrison Wleh described him as hardworking, someone who took initiative, and willing to learn.

Bishop Innis, in response to the sad news says, “We have lost a leader of the church. Rev. Morris has served with distinction and the church across Liberia will mourn his death.”

  1. As a district superintendent who is committed to realizing the church’s doctrine of holistic evangelism and dynamic spiritual growth, Rev. Jarkloh was a dedicated servant of the church who provided spiritual and pastoral leadership as best as he could. Brother Morris was unassuming, sincere and polite in his interaction with people as well as a tactful and humble personality, with a touch of humanity.

    On behalf of the Jarkloh family, I extend my heartfelt thanks to Rev. Dr. Innis, Resident Bishop (Liberia Area) as well as the representatives of the Liberia Annual Conference for the gesture of ordinary kindness shown through the course of events in which we grapple with the loss of our beloved brother. We appreciate your moral and material support and overwhelming sympathy in standing with us in our difficult time of grief and bereavement.

    May Rev. Jarkloh’s soul rest in perpetual peace till we meet again in Heaven. Brother Morris, I love you as do all of your other brothers and sisters. Your blessed memory will forever remain with us your brothers, your children, grand children, nieces and nephews, relatives and friends of the Jarkloh family, the Liberia Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church, and the entire community that you had served so brilliantly. We say goodbye and do pay the last vestiges of our homage to you on your home going.
