During his summer breaks he loved to work on nearby farms and ranches.
He attended Shadow Lake Community Church. He was a fun loving guy. He almost always had a smile on his face which would light up any room. He had a great sense of humor and always tried to see the good in everyone and every situation. Spending time with friends was very important to Jordan. His group of friends was large, as he made friends with everyone he came in contact with. He knew no strangers. He often would have friends over for supper and they would spend the night playing X-box or just talking. Sometimes these visits would turn into multiple night events. He was the life of any get-together, always making jokes or playing pranks his friends. He always wanted to do stunts, just to see if he could accomplish them without getting hurt.
Family was very important to Jordan and he enjoyed the time he could spend with them playing games or just goofing off. He did not like to spend time alone so he always found family or friends to surround him. He loved his God and knew that he was going to heaven.
