Curtis Allan Jordan RIP

(Akron, Ohio)


It was a beautiful summer evening. I had spent most of the day preparing for our July 4th celebration, when a knock came at our front door. I was surprised to see one of my sons friends standing there, his face was ashen, his eyes watery. From somewhere deep down I knew what he had come to tell us. I wanted to slam the door, shut out the news that I had feared for so long. My oldest son, our third child was gone. He had been riding his motorcycle when it happened. Just a stupid mistake, and he was gone. I had seen him earlier in the day as he drove past the house and honked the horn, and as always threw his hand up and waved as he drove by. That moment plays over and over in my mind.The next time I saw him was when I picked up a newspaper and saw his body lying in the middle of the highway, a sheet had been draped over him.
When his younger brother claimed his belongings at the coroners office he had been told that Curtis had died on impact. My son handed me his brothers cell phone, not a scratch on it. How strange that Curt had endured so many injuries and yet his phone was in tact. His wedding ring was undamaged as well, that simple band that stands for eternal love. How we got through the next few days is beyond me. But we did.
As I mentioned Curtis was our third child, his older sister's had passed away before him. At his memorial one of my grandchildren hugged me and said "Its okay Gram, Uncle Curt is with Aunt Tina and Aunt Lisa. He will be just fine" there are times when I truly believe children are far wiser then adults. We mourn his loss, but we know that he will be "just fine". I like to think of him out there, somewhere, riding, feeling free. And in the quiet of the night I often think I hear that familiar sound of a horn honking. Rest Well, my son. Rest Well.

Rest In Peace Brother
by: C.Kenneally

I worked with Curtis for a short time, 5 months to be exact. In those 5 months I learned more from him then I have in my 4 yrs of law enforcement. He was a loving and caring person, no matter who the person was or came from he treated them with the same respect as he would wanted, I am thankful to have gotten to work with him and know him. I am thankful for everything he showed me and has made me grow as a better person. I know that he is riding up there and TCB (taking care of business) for god! We miss you brother and one day we will meet again....Rest in peace Brother!!!!!

a good man
by: Anonymous

The Mother's Day before Curtis died, so did my car battery- at the grocery store. I had no phone no way to get home I was panicked. And then I saw a tall tattooed man talking to his wife. CURTIS and JEN! He took time to jump my battery and even offered to go to the store to put a new one in for me. The next day that I saw him at work, he was clocking out, around the corner before I could thank him again for taking time out of his day, for saving me and my kids...the next day he was gone. Say what you need to say. Tomorrow isn't guaranteed.

Brother in Blue
by: R.Jones/Family

Curtis was and still is a wonderful person alway's putting others first. I met Curtis in 2008 when i started working with him. I wish all Supervisors were like him. But anyway Curtis had a certain way about him he could calm almost any situation down by just talking. He has touched alot of lives in his time here on earth and im sure that he is touching alot more in his ETERNAL life. Curtis will be a forever Guardian Angel to his family and protect them as he always done. I think of you often Brother in Blue one day we will roam the halls of Heaven together to Serve and Protect once again.
