Jason Morris Jordan, 47, of Pierce County, passed away early Monday morning, September 13, 2021, at his residence following a courageous battle with cancer.
Born in Waycross March 2, 1974, he had lived in Pierce County in the Forks of the Hurricane all of his life. He was a 1993 graduate of Pierce County High School. He had worked for CSX Transportation for over 17 years but left it to pursue his life-long passion, farming, which he had done basically all of his life. He was a big history buff, enjoyed using his metal detector, going camping and just being outdoors. His main hobby was farming but he did find time to go to the mountains with his family on vacations. Dollywood was a favorite of his but riding the rollercoasters there were not. He also enjoyed going to Disney World with his girls and felt the same about their rollercoasters as he did about Dollywood’s. He was extremely proud of his girls and loved them dearly. He was a member of Emmanuel Baptist Church where he was in the Young Adult Sunday school class. He loved going to church and leading others to Christ.
He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, E.W. and Ethel Sweat Jordan Jr. and maternal grandparents, Frances Lake McIntosh and Marie Lackey McIntosh.
