Jordan also served for three years as the president of the school’s Catholic Student Association.

While at Mississippi State, Jordan served as the meteorologist on the school’s student-run news show, “Take 30 News” and served as a news writer for the school’s newspaper, “The Reflector”. He covered various articles, including minors in possession of alcohol to a giant inflatable baby in the middle of campus.

Jordan is a native of Atlanta and is an avid fan of the Hawks and Braves as well as 2018 MLS Cup Champions Atlanta United. He also has been an Atlanta Falcons season ticket holder since he was in high school. He is an avid soccer fan and his favorite “European” team is Manchester United. Jordan is an avid singer as well, as he is a member of his church choir and was in choirs at both Jackson State, where he won the Director’s Award his senior year, and Mississippi State.
