Zachary businessman C. Jordan Charlet was recently appointed by the East Baton Rouge Parish Metro Council to a four-year term on the Board of Commissioners at Lane Regional Medical Center.

A native of Clinton, Charlet is co-owner of Charlet Funeral Home in Zachary and has more than 20 years of experience as a licensed funeral director and embalmer in Louisiana.

Charlet serves as public information officer for the Clinton Volunteer Fire Department and as a captain with the Zachary Volunteer Fire Department. He also is a member of the Louisiana Funeral Directors Association and a member of the Disaster Mortuary Operational Response Team, a federal program of the National Disaster Management System for identifying and assisting families in the identification of decedents in disaster situations, such as 9/11 and hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

He and his wife of 15 years, Aimee Mouch, live in Zachary and have two sons, Jude, 13, and Colin, 10.

“Lane has served my family for many, many years and is a valuable resource for our community,” Charlet said. “I look forward to serving on the board and being part of the organization’s progressive plans.”

The Lane board has nine members in addition to Charlet: Chairwoman Dell Guerra, Vice Chairwoman Joan Lansing and members at large Dr. Keith Elbourne, Patricia Gauthier, Jimmy Jackson, Mayor Harold Rideau, Mark Thompson and Gaynell Young.
