    I worked with Ms Jordan for many years at Linden McKinley. She was always giving me advice and looking after me and other. Always lent a helping hand with all of my extracurricular programs. Always at the games and programs. She was the heart of Linden. She never met a stranger and always made people Feel good about themselves. She is truly a legacy. I have many fond memories of her. And remember many of our conversations. She will be missed.

    I wanted to write and let you know that you and your family are in my prayers right now. I realize that there are no words that I could write or say to make things better, but please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your loved one. Ms. Jordan was top shelf – great for students, mentor to me and many others in CCS, always someone to brighten the day. She led by example and I will continue to try to follow her work each day in my daily work with our CCS students.
