Bennington, Nebraska Officer Dies After Short Illness
Officer Louden used to work with my brother at a air-rescue dispatch center, and according to him, Louden admitted himself into the hospital while on duty and later died from a "short illness" which is believed to have been a heart attack. None of us are sure what actually happened because nothing has been officially released as of yet.
LOUDEN-James Jay, age 44yrs, of Omaha, died March 19, 2007, in Omaha, NE, after a short illness. James (Jim) was born on September 12, 1962 in Inglewood, CA. He moved from Redondo Beach, CA to Fremont, NE in 1970. He grew up and attended school in Fremont, graduating from Fremont High school in 1980. Jim attended the Nebraska Law Enforcement Academy in Grand Island, Nebraska in 1985/86. He went on to become a law enforcement officer in Yutan, Saunders County Sheriffs Department, Schuyler, Madison, Valley, Waterloo, and at the time of his passing was an officer on the Bennington Police Department, Jim was also an EMT with the Valley Volunteer Fire Department. Jim is survived by son, Nicholas Louden of Omaha; his parents, Lloyd and Linda Louden of Fremont; sister, Laurie (Stacey) Smith, of Houston, TX; brothers, Scott Louden of Fremont, and Steven Louden of Arlington, TX; nephew, Jared Louden of Fremont. Jim is also survived by his fiancee, Christy Rothermund and her three children Brian, Christine, and Mary Rothermund, all of Omaha. Also his very best friend and brother since childhood, KC Bang. Jim also leaves behind many aunts, uncles and cousins, friends and fellow officers and firefighters. Jim was preceded in death by his paternal and maternal grandparents, Ben and Sally Louden, and Harvey and Viola Widgren, and one Aunt, Jackie Louden. Jim was a member of the North American Search Dog Network-Disaster Response. He loved training and caring for his bloodhounds. Also a member of United States Marshals Service Fugitive Apprehension Team-Central U.S. and the Nebraska Police Officers Assoc.

Nebraska Officer Dies After Short Illness
I am responding to the message which was posted by Emily about the death of Officer James J. Louden.
Please bare with me as I have never used one of these sites before, but was not able to contact this person to make corrections.
I am James J. Louden's mother, and I would like the correct facts posted. My son was not on duty at the time he became ill, he did not admit himself to the hospital, and he did not die of a heart attack.
Jim was at home when he suddenly became violently ill and his son drove him to the hospital.
His cause of death has been ruled undetermined at this time, and the family is still looking into it.
Our name and town are listed in the posting by Emily and we are in the telephone book, so please if you have questions or information feel free to contact us.

I was just passing along the information I was given from my brother's co-worker. I figured the members on this board would like to know that a brother had passed, whether on duty or not. Mods can delete it if they wish.

I don't believe Linda was posting a reply requesting a deletion of the thread, it appears that she wishes to provide more accurate information. Such is appreciated.
Please accept our sympathies for your loss, and our sincere wishes that the matter is resolved to provide for necessary closure for the family.
Whether an on-duty death or not, the loss of one of our brothers is always saddening. Please allow me to express our deepest thanks for his service, and our warmest wishes for his surviving friends and family members.

Well first we need to ask oursleves what "short illness" would result in a fatal heart attack? You don't need an MD to figure out that in the WHOLE HISTORY OF MANKIND there has never been an illness, virus, or bug that would have a fatal result in less than 24 hours. Not even the historic "Black Plague" killed a person in 24 hours. My father died in the ICU in less than 19 hours with teams of doctors trying to figure out the cause for what some people want to believe was an illness. Maybe it was maybe it wasn't but it DEEPLY saddens me that a man of 24 years in law enforcement just up an dies one day with no warning signs and in about as perfect health that one can be in at his age of 44 and people accept that. This is truely ridiculous and to me really defines what our "brother in arms" really means. I appreciate the condolences but there should be alot more questions being asked of everyone if you truely care and have compassion for those that serve for peace, justice, honor, courage, and freedom.........but what do I know right.

Officer James Jay Louden was married to a distant cousin of mine. For some reason I have not seen this tribute to him - for that I apologize. When he passed, I sent condolences to his wife and family. Nick, I hope that you will always honor the memory of your father and what his life represented. May he serve St Michael with the dignity and honor he served his community.
Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.
