Written by: Special Services Corporation --    We are sad to let everyone know our company CEO, Jim Alexander, suddenly passed away this week. He spent nearly 40 years in aviation and 30 at the helm of Special Services Corporation.

Of all these roles and responsibilities, the most important part of his life was his service to his LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ. 

If there is one thing that people will remember about Jim, it will be his heart to help others. His generosity, care for others, and willingness to jump in and give to whomever needed it, will be sorely missed. 

Our prayers are for his loving family at this time of unexpected loss.

I know the family would covet your prayers at this time. 

Arrangements have been made and are below:

Viewing will be Friday, December 4, 6-8 PM at Thomas Mcafee Downtown Greenville 

Funeral will be Saturday, December 5, 10:30 AM at Tabernacle Baptist Church on White Horse Road Greenville SC.


GREELEYVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -  A pilot died just before taking off on a routine charter flight from the Greenville Downtown Airport (KGMU).

Joe Frasher, director of the airport, said the pilot - who had flown for nearly 30 years - was set to take off on a routine charter flight on a Cessna jet around 11 a.m. Tuesday.

As they were preparing to take off, the pilot had a health issue.  A copilot taxied him back to the terminal. Emergency medical responders worked on the pilot for some time.

"He was great guy, a longtime friend of the downtown airport. He flew for the Liberty Corporation for years. When RBC bought Liberty, they turned the flight department into a charter company called Special Services Corporation," Frasher said.

He said the pilot was "a longtime supporter of all charitable efforts at the airport. He will be dearly missed."

The Greenville County Coroner's Office has not released the pilot's name as of 2:10 p.m. Tuesday.
