IMPD's Other Fallen Officer

While the attention has been focused on the tragic shooting death of Officer David Moore this week, another IMPD officer died this week as well. Thirty-one year old Officer Jason Jordan, who worked at the north district where Officer Moore also worked, died on Monday. While there has been some speculation in the comment thread of this blog on the cause of Jordan's death, let's just remember and honor his service as well here and extend our thoughts and prayers to his family. His obituary as it appears in today's Star.

Officer Jason Alan Jordan age 31, of Indianapolis, passed away January 24, 2011. Formerly of the Marion County Sheriff's Department, he was currently employed with IMPD where he was assigned to the Metro Drug Task Force. He was also a member of FOP Lodge #86. He leaves to cherish his memory his wife, Lee Ann; sons, Jack and Cooper; parents, Jim Sr. and Kathy Jordan; brother, Jim (Missy) Jordan; and a host of extended relatives and friends. Funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, January 29 at the St. Luke United Methodist Church, 100 W. 86th St., with visitation hours from 4 p.m to 8 p.m. on Friday, January 28 in Crown Hill Funeral Home. Memorial contributions in Jason's honor may be made to the Jordan Family Trust at 1502 E. Washington St., 46201 or The Healing Place, 1020 W. Market St., Louiville, KY 40202.

I think it is sad that an officer who presumably had served as well as David Moore did gets ignored and his memory is swept under the carpet as if he never existed.

Indy Student, I removed your comment because I don't want to include that speculation on this thread out of respect to the family. If IMPD or the media release further information, I will update at that time.

Your link was broken, TwoDome. You can post on the other thread where that was discussed. I said we weren't going to post here. Why don't you just cut and paste on the other thread what WISH-TV originally reported?
