Jordan began his coaching journey in 1994 with youth football and baseball.  Jordan returned to Jefferson and joined the football coaching staff as a varsity wide receiver coach, with four trips to the AYF National Championships in Orlando, and winning it all in 2013. It was March 2016 when Jordan’s dream coaching position became a reality as he returned to Jefferson High School as the football head coach.

Inspired by youth leadership and development, Jordan has lived out his life’s call by serving with many youth organizations for the past 23 years. Jordan founded the Portland Leadership Foundation where he serves as President. PLF is a faith-based community organization committed to bridging the gap for youth in the city of Portland.

Jordan’s life motto is, “Once this life I’ve been given has come to an end, I pray that I will have lived a life fully wrung out.”
