  3. Jordan you always had such a great sense of humor and were always so smart. Saddens me that you finally found true happiness in your life and it was cut so short. You will be missed my friend.

  4. I grieve and weep over Jordan, as he was Will’s best friend, like a brother. Their connection goes back about 28 years. I have so many memories:sleepovers, school antics, wrestling team, living together in NC, and many others. I am so thankful he has had turned his life around and found the woman he wanted to marry. May you receive the peace and comfort only God can give and eventually inner joy at the memories of a smart, loyal, funny young man. I will always love you. Rest In Peace and Godspeed.

  5. I also thought you of more like a brother than like a cousin. I always looked up to you, wanted to be as cool as you and always wanted to have a Lexus like you. You had come so far from where you were and your were FINALLY happy in life. I hate that I haven’t seen you in so long. I think that’s what’s making this so hard. I love you Jordan, I’m so thankful for all the memories that I have!

  6. Jordan. Where do I start? So many GREAT memories with this guy. From playing video games to going to casinos or just holding a conversation. There was never a dull moment. He will be missed deeply. Gone to soon. Prayers for peace & comfort for the family and all those who knew Jordan.

  7. Jordan, You were one of my brothers always. I am happy that you were happy. You meant more to me than you probably knew. We did so much growing up together and I have so many great memories with you. You were a true and loyal friend. You are missed by so many but your touch on all those people will remain. You were one of a kind. I wish your Family all my deepest regrets. I know God has a special place for Jordan.

  8. Jordan was a great guy, always friendly and loved Eun so much. I have only known him for a short while, I met him when he moved in with Mike. He was a kind soul and the world was a better place when he was here. Love to his family and Eun.

  9. The Proctor, Lucas and Johnson families would like to bestow condolences in the lost of your Son, Brother, and our Family Friend, Jordon.
