BETHLEHEM Bethlehem Town Justice Mark Jordan died today at Albany Medical Center after suffering a brain aneurysm several days earlier. He was 50.
Jordan, who served half of a term as a member of the Bethlehem Town Board before running for justice in 2011, was a lawyer with a law practice in Delmar.
In a statement, Jordan’s family extended thanks to friends, colleagues, Town Court staff and members of the Bethlehem Police Benevolent Association for their prayers and support in the recent days.
Jordan was a member of the Independence Party, but was also endorsed by the town Republican Committee in his campaign for town justice. In a statement sent to town GOP Committee members, Chairman Fred DiMaggio said Jordan was “a great guy who was always friendly and open to all people, had a sharp mind and a terrific sense of humor.”
“We were good friends and I’ll dearly miss him,” he continued.
Funeral arrangements will be forthcoming.
