Jordan was born in Shepherd’s Bush London and grew up in Northolt until he was 15. His first taste of rugby was as an 8-year old at primary school. He also played basketball, was the school football team captain and was keen on his athletics in the summer months. His favourite event was shot put.

He played for Wasps amateurs and Middlesex county at number 8. He then transitioned to tighthead prop when he joined Wasps academy at age 15.

In 2020, as part of his rugby development, Jordan went to play in New Zealand for Whangamata. Unfortunately in his last game before he travelled home to the UK he sustained a freak injury to his eye. He was then advised to stop playing rugby.

He started working in construction in Buckinghamshire and then began his training to become a Personal Trainer. He got his PT certificate in July 2021 and moved to Leeds for a job opportunity at Bannatyne Health Club.

When Jordan moved to Leeds he was in touch with his ex-Wasps teammate Alex Pleasants who had just signed for the Tykes. One thing led to another and Jordan began training with the Tykes, initially just to reconnect with the rugby environment and enjoy the training.

Throughout the 22/23 season Jordan got more involved in the different aspects of Tykes training and came to the realisation that he wanted to return to play. Throughout this period he had been continuing his rehabilitation for his eye injury. Former Director of Rugby, Jon Callard, put Jordan in touch with an old England colleague, Simon Falk, who is an eye specialist in Leeds. Simon provided Jordan with some eye protection goggles that Jordan uses to train and play.
