James Jordan

January 21, 1948 — May 31, 2021

James “Jim” Jordan, 73, of Berrien Springs, passed to his rest in Jesus at Spectrum Lakeland Hospital- Niles on May 31.

Jim was born January 21, 1948 in LaCrosse, Wisconsin to Raymond and Myrtle (Van Sickle) Jordan. He graduated from Wisconsin Academy and attended Andrews University. He married Carol Nash on June 16, 1968.

Jim worked many years for Andrews University in construction - first as part of the university construction crew and then he earned his builder’s license and hired his own crew and did many projects for the university while also building many new homes and doing commercial projects in the community. His passion though was donating his and his employees’ time with many of those projects being donated to the Village Adventist Elementary School. He really enjoyed going on a mission trip to Mexico to build a church. Jim also had a passion for caring for the fatherless through adoption and foster care and was a support to the ministry God’s Hands 4 Kids.

Sports was Jim’s thing. He loved golf and Packer football most of all.

Jim is survived by his wife, Carol Nash Jordan; his son, Michael (Darla) Jordan; his daughter, Asha Jordan; grandchildren: Karen Jordan, Gabriella Jordan, Catherine Jordan, Natalie Jordan, Antonio Jordan, David Jordan, McKenzie Jordan, Jazmine Jordan, Santez Jordan, Kaleb Jordan, Skylar Jordan, Landon Jordan; mother, Myrtle Jordan; brother, Richard (Andrea) Jordan; twin brother, John (Diana) Jordan; many nieces and nephews; daughter-in-law, Davka Aparicio; and sister-in-law, Joyce Jordan. Also survived by “like a son” to Carol and Jim, David (Sondra) Staggs and their children.

He was preceded in death by his sons, J. Nash and Todd; father, Raymond Jordan; and brother, Raymond Jordan.
