NOGALES, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Nogales police officer Jesus Cordova was killed by a carjacking suspect on Friday, April 27.

On Monday, May 14, Cordova's wife Alyssa penned a letter to the community to thank everyone for the outpouring of love and support her family received.

Below is a copy of Alyssa's letter in English and Spanish.

On behalf of the Cordova and Salazar families, we would like to express our gratitude for the outpouring love and support during this time of grief and sorrow.

Jesus was very proud to serve the community he loved and its beautiful people have reciprocated his passion. Jesus gave the ultimate sacrifice to ensure his children, family, friends and fellow Nogalians would live to see another day. His daily mission was to serve and protect; Jesus completed his mission honorably and wholeheartedly.

Nogales and communities throughout the Great State of Arizona and around our Nation have joined forces in prayer, contributions, and overwhelming support and for that, we are forever grateful. Our mission as his family will continue to reflect on Jesus’ commitment and dedication to serve and protect our people.

Although too many to mention, we are at a loss for words to give thanks to the numerous organizations and individuals who have made sure that Jesus’ sacrifice does not go unnoticed.

As his family, we ask of our community that Jesus’ name and legacy never be forgotten. To our brothers and sisters in uniform, honor Jesus by protecting your badge and wearing it as proudly as he did!

God Bless You All

En nombre de las familias de Córdova y Salazar, nos gustaría expresar nuestra gratitud por el amor y el apoyo efusivos durante este momento de dolor y tristeza.

Jesús estaba muy orgulloso de servir a la comunidad que amaba y su gente hermosa ha correspondido a su pasión. Jesús dio el máximo sacrificio para asegurarse de que sus hijos, familiares, amigos y compañeros Nogalenses vivieran para ver otro día. Su misión diaria era servir y proteger; Jesús completó su misión honorablemente y de todo corazón.

Nogales y las comunidades a lo largo del Gran Estado de Arizona y alrededor de nuestra Nación han unido sus fuerzas en oración, contribuciones y apoyo abrumador y por eso, estamos eternamente agradecidos. Nuestra misión como familia seguirá reflejando el compromiso y la dedicación de Jesús para servir y proteger a nuestra gente.

Aunque son demasiados para mencionarlos, no tenemos palabras para agradecer a las numerosas organizaciones e individuos que se han asegurado de que el sacrificio de Jesús no pase desapercibido.

Como su familia, le pedimos a nuestra comunidad que el nombre y el legado de Jesús nunca sean olvidados. ¡A nuestros hermanos y hermanas de uniforme, honren a Jesús protegiendo su insignia y vistiéndola tan orgullosamente como él lo hizo!


Dios los bendiga a todos
