  • The first time I saw Jordie it was love at first sight. He was the most lovable person I’ve ever known. Making him laugh and putting a smile on his face always made me feel like the luckiest girl ever. He truly did love his family with all of his heart and has so many people that care for him with some amazing memories to remember him by. I will miss him with every ounce of my being every minute of every single day. But I will also smile for him, laugh for him and live for him. He will share his eternal life with our sweet Pumba and watch over us. My Jordie, my world, I will count the blue cars. Rest in peace.

  • I remember meeting him for the first time in middle school at the playground at the Pointe in Ballwin,mo. He was so funny. Made me laugh constantly. Then finding out he lived down the street from my friend a couple years later, and saw him almost every day. He always knew how to make us smile and laugh. I’ll never forget those days. He was such a great person with such an aspiring personality. He will forever be loved. My heart and prayers go out to his family and friends. All my love.

  • I met Jordie in 4th grade and he was so fun and we actually were in the same 5th grade class together and his mom sometimes substitute teached our class, then starting middle school we rode the same bus and hung out often and he was the nicest person, he used to come to my house almost everyday after school and also in high school. I remembered when he moved away and then came back and he got to meet my baby while he was working at chevys and said how cute and how much he looked like me, I will never forget an instince of the memories we had, he was one of the coolest down to earth kind of guy, this is so sad and such a loss, I give hugs and prayers to his whole family I couldn’t imagine what your going through! With all my love, Angie
