Jackson County Officials comment on the passing of Albert Riederer
December 27, 2012
Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker released the following statement today on the passing of former Jackson County Prosecutor, Albert Riederer.
“Personally and professionally this is a loss. Albert Riederer served as a mentor to me and helped shape the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office.
Albert left an indelible imprint on the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office. Albert’s legacy encouraged the upmost in ethics, honestly, fair dealing and compassion.
Albert was a true leader who faithfully served the citizens of Jackson County for decades. An award was established in his name for the assistant prosecutor who exemplifies those same qualities and high standards that Albert exhibited in his practice of law.
He is irreplaceable, and to this day, the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office remembers the spirit, honesty and integrity of Albert Riederer and strives to maintain the standards that he left behind.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.”
Jackson County Executive Mike Sanders said, “Today, we lost a truly great human being. Albert dedicated much of his life and career to helping improve the lives of others. His contributions as an elected official, civic leader, and mentor are still felt today. As Jackson County Prosecutor, he set an example for all other prosecutors to follow. Although he is no longer with us, Albert’s spirit will live on, both in the people he touched and in the community that he cared so deeply about.”
The flags at all county buildings are being flown at half-staff in honor of Riederer.
