 Jordan was born in Taber on June 12, 1995. He was a spirited, charming, handsome young man. Jordan always had a smile on his face that was infectious. As a child he was full of energy. He loved being a prankster, keeping mom, dad and big brothers Joel and Jarid on their toes. Jordan was a master of charming his way out of trouble with a smile and a twinkle in his eye. He loved building things with any material he could find, earning a “MacGyver” nickname as a child. As a young adult, Jordan became an avid snowboarder and would hit the slopes with friends any chance he could get. His friends describe him as the rock that would lend an ear, always willing to listen or lend a hand. Jordan did everything with a full heart and with all the effort he had. He made friends easily and was cherished by all. Until we meet again dear Jordan, our son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend. We will miss your life spark, generosity, kind spirit and laughter.
