Born and raised in New Albany, Ohio, Jordan first began swimming for the Plain Township Aquatic Center. He continued on swimming for New Albany Middle School & High School. Although he did not continue his swimming career in college, Jordan went on to play water polo for The Ohio State University. His passion has led him to coaching the New Albany High School water polo team, teaching private lessons, and now his second summer with the Muirfins. He plans to remain active in the swimming and water polo community as he pursues his goal of one day teaching English abroad in China.
