|Remembering Police Officer Jordan Corder|
The On Wednesday, September 30, 2015, the Covina Police Department remembers Police Officer Jordan Corder, who lost his life as a result of an on-duty traffic collision one year ago. Officer Corder was on-duty patrolling the city streets of Covina when he was involved in a traffic collision at the intersection of Citrus Avenue and Puente Street; he succumbed to his injuries associated with the traffic collision.
Jordan was a local boy, growing up in Covina and graduating in 2004 from Charter Oak High School where he lettered in swimming and water polo. The son of Mark and Diane Corder, Jordan followed in his father’s footsteps and joined the Covina Police Department. As a police officer, Jordan became a court-certified expert in DUI recognition and a traffic collision investigator, earning him a position in the Traffic Unit as a motorcycle officer. His last day on patrol, was the first day he got to wear his newly ordered motorcycle boots.
Aside from being an outstanding police officer, Jordan was an outstanding human being. Jordan loved his family and friends. He loved the outdoors and he loved his community of Covina. He is deeply missed and the City of Covina and the Covina Police Department remain true to our promise: He will never be forgotten.
