BELLEVUE, Wash. — A Washington police department is mourning the loss of motorcycle officer Jordan Jackson.

KIRO News reported Jackson, 34, was traveling on his motorcycle when a vehicle entered the roadway from a parking lot, causing his motorcycle to collide with the car. Jackson was transported to a local hospital, where he later died.

“We are devastated by Officer Jackson’s tragic death,” Bellevue Police Chief Wendell Shirley told KIRO. “Our hearts go out to his wife, two children, his family and friends, and extended BPD family as they grieve. This is a huge loss for the entire community.”

Jackson had been a member of the Bellevue Police Department since 2018. Before joining the Bellevue Police Department, Jackson was an EMT, volunteer firefighter and a member of the King County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue Volunteer K-9 Unit.

He was recently honored as employee of the quarter “for his excellent quality of work and service to the community,” according to Bellevue police.

The crash is still being investigated, but preliminary findings show impairment and speed were not factors, according to WSP Trooper Rick Johnson.
