About Jordan

Jordan was a free spirited, 22-year-old college student, award winning athlete, with a beautiful smile and generous heart. The foundation highlights his stellar athletic performance and passion for team sports, especially football and basketball. Jordan began playing football at the age of 7 for the Waterbury Knights in his hometown, Waterbury CT; he also played for the Watertown Indians. While in middle school at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, he played varsity basketball and baseball, ultimately earning the MVP award in 2014-2015.

Jordan then advanced to High School football where he played for Sacred Heart High School, Holy Cross High School, and his alma mater Cheshire Academy, class of 2020. Positions played throughout high school were Wide Receiver and Defensive Back, he was also a starter even as a freshman. While playing for Cheshire Academy he was team captain during his senior year. Whether on the field leading his team with interceptions, touchdowns or just bringing positive competitive energy, his exceptional athletic abilities were sure to impress. His stellar athletic reputation was documented in media publications such as the Waterbury Republican.

After high school, Jordan accepted a full scholarship to play football at the University of New Haven. He played wide receiver and defensive back while he studied business administration. His long-term goal was entrepreneurship, but he was also preparing to work for Dept of Corrections.

Jordan was an award-winning athlete as a youth and young adult. He was known for his boundless energy, drive, endurance, and his super competitive nature. He was also an avid Philadelphia Eagles fan. He would attend countless Eagles games with his older brothers, where he would make predictions about who would score the next touch down.

In addition to sports, Jordan was committed to spending quality time with family and friends. He was the best son, brother, uncle, grandson, nephew, and friend anyone could ask for. He showered affection toward his parents, he loved his grandmothers cooking so much that he considered her house a 5-star restaurant. His relationship with his brothers and sister is a testament to the strength of our family bond. Whether loving on his nephew and nieces or showing kindness to his aunts and friends, he radiates a love that enriches the lives of everyone in his circle. Jordan was also an active member of Christ CME Church in Waterbury CT. His favorite scripture was Psalm 23, vs 1-4. His loving nature on this earth will continue as our family’s guardian angel.
