    Dear family,
    I am saddened to hear of Mr. Jordan’s passing. I have fond memories of him from my time as a student at Willingboro Memorial JHS from 1971-1973.
    He was a great teacher and just a really nice person. My thoughts and prayers are with his entire family during this difficult time. May God bless and comfort you.
