Jordan was born in the Bronx, where he took his first swimming lessons at two-years-old in Parent & Me classes at the local YMCA. He continued in lessons and perfected his strokes until the age of 13, when he took a break from the pool in order to force more on lacrosse -- a decision that paid off when his team won a state championship in 2015! When he was 16, Jordan obtained his lifeguarding certification and began working at the Dwight School Athletic Center as he reimmersed himself in the aquatic world. He eventually became Dwight's head swim instructor and also ran the swim program at Level Fitness, a private gym in Pelham, New York. Away from the pool, Jordan can be found playing lacrosse or cooking. He is currently pursuing his bachelor's degree in Marketing at West Chester Community College.
