Jordan was born in September 1987 in Gulfport, Mississippi to Ronald and Angie Jones and graduated from Harrison County Public Schools.  He enjoyed target shooting and was accomplished in both marksmanship and archery.  In addition to deer hunting and fishing, Jordan enjoyed growing a summer garden and maintaining a small orchard.  He was a generous, loving person and is deeply missed by his family and and large circle of friends.

He is survived by his maternal grandmother, Nancy Callihan Northup, Natchez; father, Ronald Jones, Gulfport; sister Jenna (Jaret) Upton, Florence; brother, Jared (Katie), Nashville, TN; and a host of loving aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.  His mother, Angie Northup Jones, passed away approximately seven weeks after his death, and he was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Dwight Lowell Northup; paternal grandparents, Rev. Robert and Mable Pittman Jones; and beloved aunt Merle Pittman.

The family would like to thank the Gulfport Memorial Hospital COVID unit doctors, nurses and other staff and caregivers for their efforts and dedication.

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, a righteous Judge, will reward to me on that day and not only to me but also to all who have longed for his appearing.  2 Timothy 4:7-8 NIV
