Jordan had a heart of gold and a smile that could light up the room on the darkest days. He cared deeply for his friends and family. Jordan had many passions throughout his life but his true passion came when he was a teenager; MUSIC. He spent many nights teaching himself how to play by listening to music with a simple pair of headphones, sometimes we wished we were wearing the headphones during this stage. Jordan, a phenomenal drummer, played in various garage bands over the years with his beloved friends. Jordan, like his dad, also had a huge passion for the kitchen; always cooking up a storm and baking bread. He spent several years working in various grocery stores in the meat department, even when he moved he always found his way back to the meat department. His love for preparing, cooking, and sharing food with everyone was prominent. Food was definitely his love language. Jordan joined his mom and Norm in the NWT where he made numerous friends and his passion for fishing grew, spending everyday on the river in the summertime. He was a hard-working man and took pride in everything he did.
Jordan, we will miss your smile, your laugh, the taste of your cooking and the sweet sounds of your music.
