Thirty-four-year-old Lafayette Police Department Patrolman Jacob Jordan was laid to rest in Eulia Cemetery last Saturday, March 31.
Jordan joined the department in 2005 at the age of 22 after holding a part-time deputy position with the Scottsville Police Department. He also worked for the Red Boiling Springs Police Department for a short time.
His career was inspired by a passion for helping others and his step-father, who had over 30 years of law enforcement experience.
According to his obituary, Jake passed away on Tuesday, March 27, at Macon County General Hospital.
He leaves behind a wife - Katrina Carr Jordan, two daughters - Kynlee Jordan and MaKayla Harris, a mother and step-father - Sandra & Danny Davis, a father and step-mother - Richard & Dawn Jordan, three sisters and his law enforcement family.
A Final Call radio broadcast went out for Officer Jordan, Badge #213, last Saturday - the same day he was laid to rest with Police Honors.
The Macon County Chronicle was privileged to have published a story featuring Officer Jake Jordan in a February 2007 issue, and we have re-printed it for our readers on Page B-1 of this week's publication.
Rest easy, #213.
Thank you for your service.
