National Geographic joins his family, friends and community in mourning the loss of Pastor Jamie Coots. In following Pastor Coots for our series Snake Salvation, we were constantly struck by his devout religious convictions despite the health and legal peril he often faced. Those risks were always worth it to him and his congregants as a means to demonstrate their unwavering faith.  We were honored to be allowed such unique access to Pastor Jamie and his congregation during the course of our show, and give context to his method of worship.  Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time. #RIP

  • damonmay67@natgeochannel ummm he looks like Leonardo DiCaprio
  • esteban.camaraWell looks like his faith was in something not real.
  • samuel_121393How did he die got bit by his own snakes or what
  • jellywoodchuck@estebancamara should hav had faith in something real like medicine or science. Not imaginary make believe stuff like ghosts and gods. I agree too many people praying to make believe never seen things. But science and fact actually kill them while they wait in the fairy god mother or Jesus (both seen in person same amount) to save them from reality... Sheep
  • esteban.camara@jellywoodchuck exactly.
  • jeannemccalebRegardless...there's a family mourning.
