SPOKANE, Wash. — An Army sergeant from suburban Spokane has died of non-combat injuries in Iraq, the Department of Defense says.

Sgt. Curt E. Jordan, Jr., 25, of Greenacres, died near Bayji, Iraq.

Jordan was involved in a minesweeping operation and fumes from a chemical he encountered apparently triggered a lethal reaction, perhaps from allergies, according to his stepmother, Tina Jordan.

He was married and had a 6-year-old daughter and 1"-year-old son, Tina Jordan said. The family lived at Fort Lewis

Jordan graduated from an alternative high school in the Spokane Valley and entered the Army a few years later. He had been in Iraq since March, Tina Jordan said.

He was scheduled to return home in February.

“He loved working on old cars, always Dodges,” his stepmother said. “He was a really, really nice kid.”
