Jackson died Monday after a car hit him while he was riding his patrol motorcycle.
BELLEVUE, Wash. — The Bellevue Police Foundation has established a memorial for Officer Jordan Jackson, who died Monday after being hit by a car while riding on a patrol motorcycle. He was 34 years old.
“It’s clear that Jordan Jackson is really loved. It’s clear,” said Villette Nolon, president of the Bellevue Police Foundation. “The scene that was so heartbreaking to learn what happened was really shocking, I personally found myself staying up all night thinking about my family.”
According to Bellevue Police Department spokeswoman Meeghan Black, Officer Jackson was the first officer in the department’s 69-year history to die in the line of duty.
“So this is the first time the fund has had to stand up for something like this,” Nolon said.
All proceeds from the memorial fund will go to Jackson’s family.
“We have received almost 300 donations and I really want to say thank you to all of them,” Nolon said.
Nolon hopes the family knows that the community is here for them, now and moving forward.
“We’re sorry you had to deal with this,” Nolon said. “It’s never been easy and letting it happen this time of year is even harder for you and everyone here in Bellevue loves you.”
In addition to the memorial fund, family and friends have also set up GoFundMe pages. You can find links to those fundraising campaigns by clicking here and here.
Bellevue Police Department officials said they are still holding funerals for the Jackson family.
