Daniel Robert JORDAN
1957 - 2020
BORN
1957
DIED
2020
Past peacefully at his home in River Falls, WI on December 24th 2020 after a 3 year battle with A.L.S. He was 63 years old. Born in Saint Paul, MN September 4th, 1957 to Jacob and Patrica Jordan. Dan was preceded in death by parents, grandparents Edward & Alice Mossong and Jacob & Elizabeth Jordan. Dan graduated Tartan High school. Growing up working on the farm, Dan managed to remain an exemplary student and star athlete throughout high school. He remembered his sports years very fondly, as did anyone who played on or coached any of his teams. He will always be remembered for his work ethic, ability to connect and his unmatched sense of humor, no matter what life threw at him. As the disease progressed, Dan lost his ability to move. Despite this, he remained at work up until 3 weeks before passing. Special thanks to Dan's high school friends, Faith Jasperson and Tom Uleland were his "hands" at Jordan Seeds, which is what allowed him to work as long as he did AND David Lewis, who was Dan's "personal driver" once he was unable to drive. Dan never failed to convey his unconditional love for his family. His abundant joy, laughter and love will be missed by all that knew this great man. He is survived by his loving wife of 35 years, Vicki; children Brandon Jordan, Breanna (Ricky) Hampton, Brady Jordan, grandchildren Kali and Kendrick; brother Jacob Jordan, Jr (Joan), sisters Kathy Deschler (Joe), and Nancy Jordan; mother-in-law Patricia Smith; Sister-in-law Lori Bottolfson (Scott), brother-in-law Tim Smith and 5 nephews. The family is planning to host a celebration in the spring of 2021 at Dan's place of residence. In lieu of flowers, please consider memorial donations directed to The ALS Association Wisconsin Chapter, 3333 N. Mayfair Rd, Ste 104, Wauwatosa, WI 53222 or als.org/wisconsin. Email: [email protected] if you would like to be notified of the celebration details or if you have any fun photos/memories of Dan.

So many amazing memories of the Jordan Ranch and Danny's crazy sense of humor and roguish nature. We neighborhood kids learned many valuable lessons on that farm. Baling hay, detasseling corn, cleaning stalls, staying away from JoJo's teeth, not always successfully. The many hay and sleigh rides. Hiding from Jake in the hay barn. And Danny saving a little girl, who loved horses so much, but froze when the entire herd was racing down the path right at her. Danny jumped in front of me, and started screaming and yelling, the horses rushed past either side of me. He was forever a hero to me. Be safe and pain free, Dannny. Carole Chambers Hitt

My heart is broken over the loss of another member of the dynasty of the Jordan clan in Woodbury, where we all grew up. The Jordan's were my neighbors from 6 months old until we sold my parents Woodbury home in 2016. We neighborhood kids learned many valuable life lessons on the farm. Hard work, baling hay, detassling corn, cleaning stalls, how to ride on tubes behind snowmobiles while Danny went in circles trying to shuck us off. He saved this little girl once, who was frozen as the herd of horses came flying down the path. He jumped in front of me and waved them off, I would have been trampled substantially. So many sleigh and hay rides.
Danny your family legacy will live on and you will be dearly missed by all those who grew up with you.
With love and sadness

Dan was one of the nicest guys in our class of `75 at Tartan High school. Haven´t seen him in many years but I am not surprised that he left a legacy of love and family. Blessings and peace to his family and friends.
