Born and raised in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, Jordan is no stranger to the tropical life style, or weather pattern, that Florida has to offer. As a native South Floridan, Jordan quickly developed a curiosity for weather, especially hurricanes, as early as 10 years old. In October of 2005, during the landfall of Hurricane Wilma, this curiosity became a passion.

At the young age of 10, Jordan decided he wanted to further his education in weather and become an on-air meteorologist. Jordan continued his education at Mississippi State University. During his time there, Jordan became a student meteorologist, forecasting for the Mississippi State Campus Connect weathercast, radio station, and newspaper. Jordan went on to graduate with a degree in professional meteorology.

Jordan’s greatest experience was getting to work side by side with meteorologists Betty Davis and Julie Durda in Miami. They became mentors to Jordan, teaching him the ways of TV meteorology and strengthening his forecast technique. Julie and Betty continue to be an inspiration and tremendous support team to Jordan.

When he’s not forecasting or looking at weather maps, Jordan loves to relax with a day on the beach. Health is also very important to Jordan, so if you see him at the gym, feel free to say hello! As a foodie, he loves to cook and check out local restaurants. Jordan is also a devoted fan to his Miami Heat and Mississippi State Bulldogs!
