Honor your hero with thoughts, memories, images and stories.
As a family, we would like to announce the loss of our son and brother Jordan P. Thibeault to the cause of liberty in Iraq. While we feel enormous grief and loss, we want to explain why our son's passing should be heralded by each and every one of us. Mankind today is faced with terrible calamities. Only a select few are willing to forgo comforts of home, indeed the very promise of a bright future, to place themselves between the forces of hate and oppression and the human spirit yearning for peace and safety. Jordan did not go to Iraq to protect America but to protect mankind. Young and eager to answer the cause of Liberty, Jordan followed his inner core of beliefs, taught by loving parents and family members, to ensure the peoples of Iraq were assured a chance of achieving peace and prosperity. His passing should give hope to all that there are still those among us who are willing to give the ultimate sacrifice to keep mankind safe and free. We honor all men and women in uniform and will continue to pray for each and every one of them as well as their families. Jordan is survived by his parents, John and Celeste Poulin Thibeault and sister, Denise. Preceded in death by all of his grandparents, Theodore N. and Denise Paquet Thibeault and Lawrence G. and Virginia Bolduc Poulin. Interment South Jordan City Cemetery.
I never met your loved one, Jordan, but I knew him. I knew him because they are the sons and daughters of every American. I prayed for him and still do. My nephew, Nathan, and my grandson, Mark fought in Iraq and Afghanistan. Your son went home on wings of eagles and will never be forgotten in the hearts of grateful Americans and freed Iraqis.
My darling son, Jordan was a real man with a heart of gold. I love him with all my heart and mind and soul. I am comforted by the knowledge that he returns that love to me and that even though we are apart for a little season that our love bridges the gap between heaven and earth. I am so very proud of him, not just because of his service to our country, but also because of his goodness, his tenderness and his compassion. He was a darling child and a brave man, a loving and caring son and brother. Sweetheart, enjoy the special place that you are in now, continue to take care of family and friends there until we are all together again. I love you and carry you in my heart looking forward to the day that we will be reunited...Eternally yours, Mom
