The head of an agency that delivered social services to thousands of people in Macon and Bibb County died Thursday afternoon.
He is Jimmie Samuel, longtime executive director of the Macon Bibb Economic Opportunity Council.
Coroner Leon Jones said he died this afternoon at the Medical Center of Central Georgia due to an undisclosed illness.
His agency ran Bibb County's winter fuel assistance program and ran the local Head Start.
The EOC was also a lead group in the Promise Neighborhood coalition put together last year to improve schools and quality of life in some Macon neighborhoods.
Funeral arrangements are not yet set.
Samuel was 64.
