Hello, I have never posted but I am Danjor's older sister.
I know Jordan would talk about this site alot. He said that you helped him with dealing with his epilepsy and even when he wouldn't post, he was always reading. It is, however, with a heavy heart, that I must inform that last week Jordan went to be with the Lord. He went into status epilepticus on thursday night while trying to go to sleep and passed away from what they said is Sudden Unexplained Death in Epilepsy that night at the hospital. It hurts me so much that this thing he had to deal with for a year, has taken his life. I'm sure he would want me to let you all know. You were all an inspiration to him to walk with his head high even when things didn't turn out the way he planned. Thank you..

Awwwwwww, ****


Jen, I am sooooooo VERY sorry to hear of Jordan's passing. As a matter of fact, I was just scrolling through a posting that had something with one of his posts in it!!

Please accept my deepest condolences. Jordan was, by all that anyone could tell here, such a sweet young man. We will miss him dearly.





Many hugs to you and your family.

Meetz

OH MY!
Me and jordan would have some great talks! especially how he wanted to be a better boyfriend for his girl! I'm in a bit of shock. He was so young! and such a bright star to this site. He will be missed. I will light a candle for him tonight
<--- He would have liked this.

Jen, my heart goes out to you and your family. Jordan was a great part of the CWE community, full of compassion and generosity. He shared insights that were amazing coming from anyone, but especially so in a guy so young. I will miss him.

I am sorry for your family's loss. He always seemed full of hope, always yearning to move forward and beyond what he was going through.

He will be missed.

I agree with Bernard, Jordan was a bright spirit here at CWE.
He came with his struggles, but he always worked at being supportive to others. I was beginning to wonder where Jordan had been, figuring that his studies had taken much of his time.
I have a heavy heart hearing this news.
May your family be blessed, and supported during the coming difficult days.

Rest in Peace, Jordan

I am so sorry for your loss. I really felt an amazing connection to your brother. My own 16 year old son has a brain tumor and Jordan and I spoke of it. He was a lovely boy. One of his last posts seemed so hopeful and I'd heard such good things about vimpat. Is there anything he'd like us to do in his memory?

Jen and family... please accept my sincerest condolences on the tragic and sudden loss of such a wonderful young man. Even though I never got the privilege to converse with him on the forums, I do remember reading his posts and the support he gave to others.

He will be sadly missed but never forgotten

Thinking of you all xxx

It's sad when a young person dies.
I knew form his posts that he wanted to drive, and be an average kid.
He wound up being above average.
