My heart was sadden to read about the the sudden loss of Jordan. As a mother having a daughter fighting cancer I wanted to give my warmest condolences to the family. To lose someone so well loved can bring such sadness but the God of all comfort tells us at 2 Kings 20:5 He feels our pain, that really helps me. At we can read in the Bible John 5:28,29 that not only does God care but it will move him to remove all the suffering he sees and gives assurance that you will have him in your life once again. May all the beautiful memories you have give you calm and peace until God’s promises come true. Again so very sorry for your heartache. 💐

Jordan was a member of my driver education class in the summer of 2018. In the short period of time that I got to know Jordan I found him to be a wonderful human being; the kind there are too few of in this world today, Along with Jacob Bogacz and Jayson Clarke, we had an enjoyable few weeks together. Those three boys were great friends and great representatives of their families, school and community. They were what friendship is all about. Life often takes us down many different paths and my life became more complete and rewarded for watching and listening to these boys interact and for having met Jordan. Jordan made this teacher have renewed faith in the youth of our great country. My hope is that other young people will try to be more like Jordan and be kind and caring and respectful of all they come into contact with. May God be with Jordan and may his family be comforted by knowing what a decent human being this young man was and how many hearts he touched.
