Officer Jordan Jackson was killed in the line of duty after a vehicle struck his motorcycle last month. A long caravan of law enforcers, civic leaders, and his family honored his service by leading a procession in east Bellevue on Tuesday.

The line began at approximately 11:15 a.m. and made its way through Bellevue streets before arriving at the Meydenbauer Center for the service.
