Jordan Fowles of San Jose, California tragically died in a single vehicle car accident on July 9, 2014.
He leaves behind six children whom he adored, Peter, Leah, Hannah, Matthew, Emmeline and Elizabeth, and their mother Andrea Clavin Fowles. He is also survived by parents Carl Steven and Martha Fellows Fowles, younger siblings and their spouses John and Allison Fowles, Jenna and Corey King, Aaron and Kaori Fowles, Adam and Eve Fowles, and Austin and Paige Fowles, as well as 25 nieces and nephews.
Jordan was born in Mesa, Arizona and grew up primarily in Richardson, Texas. He was studious from an early age, excelling in school and collecting experience and knowledge around the world as he served a two-year LDS mission in Leipzig, Germany, studied at Ricks College in Idaho, Brigham Young University in Utah, the University of Vilnius in Lithuania, and obtained Master's Degrees at both Oxford University in England and the University of Michigan, where he also graduated with his law degree in 2004, and, most recently, as a Pilgrim walking The Way of St. James in Spain. He became a passionate lawyer, practicing as a patent litigator first at Fish & Richardson P.C. in Dallas and Austin, Texas, then at Duane Morris LLP in Houston, Texas. At the time of his death, he was corporate counsel focusing on patent litigation at Google.
Throughout the many stages of his life experiences he became a friend and mentor to many, both professionally and personally. He was a loving and devoted father, thinking constantly of his children. He enthusiastically helped others and loved engaging in social and civic endeavors, including Alumni associations, the J. Reuben Clark Law Society, and serving in his Church. He loved the Gospel of Jesus Christ and provided an example of Christian discipleship to those around him.
Jordan will be buried in the Salt Lake City Cemetery. A Celebration of Life will be held on July 18, 2014 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the LDS Church at 700 South 500 East, in Salt Lake City.
