A former US Marine has received a huge gift in the form of a new house in Madera.

The recipient was Lance Cpl. Jordan Cody, an Afghanistan veteran selected for the house by Operation Homefront, a nonprofit that provides homes for military families. The Majestic Court residence was provided by JPMorgan Chase, and comes mortgage-free. A full-time student, Cody is expecting to enter law school later this year. He will be living in the house with his 4-year-old daughter, Kadence.

“It’s hard to process – the fact that this is happening and that I was selected for this unreal,” Cody said. “And I’m going to be here with my daughter is something that I can barely put into words.”

Following the passing of the keys, Cody was then given a tour of the new house by Maurjon Alston, a case worker for Project Homefront, who pointed out the closet space for Kadence to play hide-and-seek in.

“Your life just changed in a matter of ten minutes,” Alston said.

Cody plans to surprise his daughter with the house, which features three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,314 square feet.
