ANAHEIM, Calif. (Sept. 30, 2023) — Former Anaheim City Council member Jordan Brandman has passed away.

Brandman, 43, was found unresponsive at his Anaheim home on Friday night, Sept. 29.

“It is with sorrow and sadness that we learned of the passing of former Council Member Brandman,” Mayor Ashleigh Aitken said. “Any loss of life in our city is a tragedy, and my heart goes out to all who knew Jordan and who are now coping with the news of his passing.”

The cause of death is pending and under investigation by the Coroner Division of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

Anaheim Police responded to Brandman’s residence at about 7:45 p.m. Friday night in response to a request for a welfare check.

There were no signs of foul play at the home. No other details are available at this time, and we ask for privacy and respect for family and friends mourning the loss of a loved one.

Brandman served on the Anaheim City Council from 2012 to 2016. He was again elected to the City Council in 2018 and stepped down before finishing his term on Aug. 5, 2021.

Brandman most recently served as director of labor relations at Irvine-based Building Industry Association of Southern California.
