Jordan, Julia L.
Julia L. Jordan – Pueblo Colorado Daily Chieftain – August 6, 1873 – Died on the 2d of August, 1873, at the Schuyler House, in South Pueblo, of consumption, Mrs. Julia L. Jordan, wife of Paul Jordan, of Atchison, Kansas, aged 29 years. Pueblo Colorado Daily Chieftain – August 6, 1873 – Sad Affliction. – On the 25th ult., Mrs. Julia L. Jordan, an estimable lady arrived on the train direct from Atchison, Kansas, having left her loving friends with the hope of relief, if not permanent cure of that dread destroyer, consumption, by coming to the health giving climate of Southern Colorado. But as it has sadly proved, the journey was too long delayed, and on Saturday night, she breathed her last, at the Schuyler House, in South Pueblo, a stranger in a strange land, and wholly without the last kind offices of loving personal friends. Her husband, Mr. Paul Jordan, having received the sad news by a telegram, arrived yesterday, and will have the remains taken to her former home.

Jordan, Ken
Ken Jordan - Pueblo Chieftain - December 6, 2006 - No cop exempt, says Pueblo police chief - Sadness rocked the Pueblo law enforcement community at news of a shooting late Monday that killed a Colorado Springs police officer. Officer Ken Jordan, 32, was pronounced dead soon after midnight. He was shot during a traffic stop. The suspected shooter, identified by relatives as Marco Lee, 25, was shot by police. He remained hospitalized on Tuesday. Jordan was the second Colorado Springs police officer killed in the line of duty this year. "Every officer on the street is talking about it and we'll be on a higher state of alert," Pueblo County Sheriff Dan Corsentino said Tuesday. "It's a dangerous world, and a heartbreaking circumstance." Pueblo Police Chief Jim Billings shared Corsentino's sorrow. “We're shocked and saddened by the news, especially since that's two officers they've lost this year,” Billings said. “I'm sure everyone's devastated up there. We feel the loss because of the sense of family among law enforcement.” The last on-duty slaying of a Pueblo police officer was on Dec. 29, 1973, when Cpl. Thomas Hanson was shot as he interrupted a robbery at a Downtown convenience store. Since then, two Colorado State Patrol troopers assigned to this region were killed in accidents while on duty in 1979 and 1987. Although it has been more than three decades since a Pueblo officer has been killed in the line of duty, Billings said no community is exempt from the daily threats that law enforcement officers face. He noted that officers have been killed in communities even smaller than Pueblo in recent years. Billings said the circumstances of Jordan's death - being shot during a routine traffic stop - highlight the danger associated with every function that police perform. “That's something that's inherent in police work,” said Billings. “There's danger in everything we do. But we have to keep a balanced perspective to avoid being paranoid.” "From my experience and looking at it from a patrol perspective, at any time you can encounter challenges," Corsentino said. "These officers in Colorado Springs even had backup, and still found themselves in harm's way." Billings noted the timing of Jordan's death and its proximity to Christmas, a parallel shared with Hanson's death in 1973. “Because it's so close to Christmas, that adds to the sadness and tragedy of the situation,” Billings said. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Colorado Springs Police Department and the family of the fallen officer. They have our deepest sympathy.” Representatives of the Pueblo Police Department, the Pueblo County Sheriff's Department and the Colorado State Patrol attended a memorial service for Colorado Springs police officer Jared Jensen, 30, in February. He was killed while trying to arrest a fugitive. Billings and Corsentino said contingents from their departments again plan to attend if a public memorial service is held for Jordan.

To be the one our Father chose. To leave earth's garden for on high. Where roses bloom always and never die. Beloved Daughter of Jeffrey Alan & Rose Marie Jubert & sister of Jade Lauren & Dante Alan Jubert.

Judkins, Addie F.
Addie F. Judkins – Summit County Journal – September 30, 1899 – Children Were Crushed – Distressing Collision on the D. & R. G. Near Canon City – Denver, Sept. 25. – A special to the Republican says: Six lives were snuffed out in a twinkling by the collision of a Judson excursion train with a fast freight, at Reno, four miles out of Canon City, on the Denver & Rio Grande railroad, at 4:08 o'clock Saturday afternoon. Two are fatally and eight more or less seriously injured. A misinterpretation of orders, or a blunder, the blame for which has not been fixed, is responsible for the catastrophe. The Judson excurision train, bound from Chicago to San Francisco, left Pueblo at 2 o'clock Saturday afternoon. This train consisted of an empty passenger coach and two tourist sleeping cars, both of which were filled with passengers, most of them bound for their homes in the West. The excursion train was drawn by a monster Mogul engine. At Florence orders were received to meet a fast freight train at Reno, four miles west of that place. An east-bound narrow gauge freight train received orders at Canon City to meet the excursion train at Reno. The siding was reached and passed by the freight which was gliding along down grade at a high rate of speed. The road winds through the tortuous Arkansas valley with many curves and turns. The excursion train was speeding along toward the siding under full head of steam. The passengers on the excursion train were admiring the beautiful scenery. Upon the platform of the forward sleeping car stood a group of children under the care of their elders. Simultaneous shrieks from two locomotives, the reversal of levers, a leap for life by two engineers and two firemen and then a crash. The two monster iron horses solidly interlocked marked the center of a heap of debris. Those killed are: Eva M. Walker, aged 12, Westford, Massachusetts; Eugenie B. Judkins, aged 12, Spokane, Washington; Addie F. Judkins, aged 10, Spokane, Washington; George H. Judkins, aged 6, Spokane, Washington; Merville Wills, aged about 10, son of Mrs. Effie Wills, who was fatally injured, Los Angeles, California; F. Salter, manager of the excursion, Boston. The anguish of parents bereaved of their children was distressing to see. So great was the force of the collision that the boiler of the big passenger engine formed a coat for that of the smaller engine. The day coach was jammed back into the middle sleeper nearly half its length, and cars loaded with ore are piled up in a mass of ruins. The tender of 574, the freight engine, lies across the track with one end resting on a box car. The disaster occurred on the identical spot where a similar though less serious collision happened last winter. The track passed under a high bluff, which forms one bank of the river.

Julen, Nels
Nels Julen – Leadville Carbonate Chronicle – April 28, 1913 – From Thursday's Daily – Death of Nels Julen – Death claimed Nels Julen, of 501 East Third street, a miner in this district for many years, yesterday after he had been sick with pneumonia only three days. Mrs. Julen, his wife, is critically sick in a hospital in Pueblo. Her condition is so grave that it was thought inadvisable to notify her of her husband's death by telegraph, and she did not learn of it till her sister, Mrs. Charles Anderson, of this city, went to Pueblo last night and informed her in person. Julen realized that death was near at hand Tuesday when, to forestall it, he had a quit claim deed filed with the county clerk by which all his property at 501 East Third street was made over to his wife. He was taken sick last Saturday, but not until Monday was he forced to take to bed. His sickness developed complications and became rapidly more serious until the end at 12:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon. It was pointed out last night as a strange coincidence that a week ago on the same day and at the same minute, 12:30, Julen's brother-in-law, William T. Sundstedt died of the same disease at 517 East Third street. Julen's death made the sixth in the family within four years. Julen was 55 years old. He is survived by a wife, a daughter, Miss Ada Julen, one son, four brothers, one sister and a mother. His brothers, sisters and mother live at Gypsum. One brother, Gus Julen, arrived in the city yesterday morning in time to see his brother before he died. Others of the family living at Gypsum are expected to come for the funeral services, which have not yet been completely arranged.

She was 47 years old. Two sisters, Mrs. Lottie Thelin, of 521 East Third street, and Mrs. Charles Anderson, survive her here. A son and daughter – Edna and Henry – survive in Pueblo, and had lived with the mother during her residence there. Dick Sundstedt, a brother, lives in Nevada. Mrs. Julen was well known in Leadville through a long residence here before her forced removal to Pueblo. Two years after she went to Pueblo her husband, Nels Julen, a miner and leaser, died here in April, 1913. Her remains will be brought to Leadville this evening for burial. Mrs. Julen was a member of the Violet Circle No. 1 Women of Woodcraft.
