The 22-year-old man was reported to have gone underwater near the Kingfisher area on June 2.

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. — The Jefferson County Coroner’s Office on Monday identified a man who drowned a week ago at Chatfield Reservoir.

Alan Ordonez, 22, was reported to have gone underwater on June 2 near the Kingfisher area of the south end of the reservoir and never resurfaced, South Metro Fire Rescue said. The water rescue call came in just after 4:30 p.m.

Ordonez was removed from the water about 5:30 p.m. and taken to the hospital. He was underwater for about 50 minutes, South Metro Fire said.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office said it “appears to be nothing more than a tragic accident.”

“Alan was an amazing son, brother, uncle, and great friend and he will be surely missed,” said a statement from his family on a GoFundMe to help pay for funeral services. “During this difficult time, we ask our family and friends to join us in helping us lay our son to rest. We kindly thank you for your support, love, and prayers.”
