The family of a “naturally gifted sportsman” from Holmer Green who was killed in a horror New Year’s Day crash last year have paid tribute to him.

Jordan Coupland, 20, was killed after his Nissan Skyline crashed into a Range Rover near the Marlow Bypass on the A404.

More than 700 people turned out to his funeral, which took place at the Chilterns Crematorium after his friends started a crowdfunding campaign to help pay for it, which raised thousands of pounds.

A man who wanted to be known only as Jim and described himself as Jordan’s parent, said: “Jordan was a gifted and natural all-round sportsman. Any sport he turned his hand to he excelled in it.

“But there was one passion for Jordan than out shone all others and that was his love as a Natural Body Building athlete and only in the weeks before he died, he won the Natural Body Building Competition for the northern regions of the UK.

“The events of the evening of January 1 will haunt me forever. Life will now never be the same; our lives have been broken and devastated by what’s happened. It is so hard to recover from such a loss.

“Jordan meant so much not to me but also to so any people. It is testament to Jordan and to his legacy that he touched so many people’s lives.

“My son Jordan was so full of life he was very intelligent, good looking, smart, he was loving, so funny and with compassion for others, he was very mischievous, and we had so many wonderful adventures together.

“My heart is totally broken and will never heal, my tears still fall because I miss Jordan so very much, each and every second of every day. To lose a child is just simply unbearable. The world moves on and I just stand still.”

“I wish I could just get to see Jordan’s smile, hear his voice, his distinctive laugh and hug him just one more time, so very tightly.”
