Jordan attended Olympia High School and Heartland Community College. He was employed at Eaton Corp. in Lincoln. He was a self-taught musician who never found an instrument he couldn't learn to play, and he also had a keen interest in cars. Jordan was a devoted father. He took care of his son every day.
Memorials may be made to the Atlanta National Bank for an education fund for his son, Abel.
In this tragedy, his family has taken comfort in the knowledge that his life will continue through the gift of organ donation to multiple recipients.
Final arrangements are entrusted with Quiram-Peasley Funeral Home of Atlanta.
