|Jesus, pray for Jordan|
High school officials describe him as intelligent, having a great sense of humour and popular in school.
Jordan studied mechanical engineering at West Point and may have been only a few hours short of graduation when he entered the Army. Friends describe him as being positive and fun-loving.
Jordan's awards and decorations include the Afghanistan Campaign Medal, the National Defense Service Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, the NATO Medal, the Army Service Ribbon, the Overseas Service Ribbon and the Combat Infantryman Badge.
