To build on Nic's answer; the forum is full of people asking how to recover a deleted issue. It WILL come back to bite you. I suggest having a resolution of 'Deleted' and close the issue to that with a comment as to why it was deleted. JIRA WILL NOT REUSE the issue number so there will be a missing number in the project that may raise questions simply by being missing.
