Lee Jordan memorial to be held Jan. 19 at Bartlett High
(UPDATED Saturday, 1 p.m.)
A public memorial service will be held for Lee Jordan on Saturday, Jan. 19 at 6 p.m. at the Bartlett High auditorium.
Jordan died on New Year’s Eve at the age of 88. The Chugiak-Eagle River Star founder was instrumental in the creation of numerous area organizations ranging from the Chugiak-Eagle River Chamber of Commerce to the Knik Little League.
Jordan was elected mayor of the Chugiak-Eagle River Borough in 1974, serving for three months until the breakaway borough was forced by the Alaska Supreme Court to remain within the Muicipality of Anchorage.
He died of natural causes surrounded by family and friends and is survived by his wife, Barbara, four children, nine grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
The Chugiak High Steve Primis Auditorium was unavailable due to ongoing repairs from the Nov. 30 earthquake.
