Jordan is one of the most inspiring people I know. Not only is he the most amazing father to our 7 month old baby boy, he goes to school at Mohawk college and works at the boys abs girls club of Hamilton. He has dedicated his life to helping the kids in low income areas get equal opportunities through the organization "D Team" he started five years ago. He has held free basketball tournaments , taught new skills to these kids and given them an outlet from the stresses of there daily struggles. He has given out school supplies sports equipment and much more. He recently started a new movement in which he got a group of 45 kids together to go around Hamilton and fix up our parks by cleaning, painting and fixing basketball nets. After the parks fixed Jordan and the kids will hold fundraisers at the parks. Jordan gets local talent to perform at these fundraisers so that they have more opportunities to get there names out. Jordan will use the money raised to help pay for these kids to join organized sports. He is so dedicated to helping these struggling communities. These kids look up to him and often learn valuable lessons that they do not learn at home. I truly believe Jordan is saving some of these kids lives. Jordan does not take an income from this and through dedication and hard work he is keeping the momentum going by involving more kids, more communities, and many more events. He inspiring leadership into these young individuals so that they can grow up to inspire others. I have seen so many positive changes in these kids that he works with. Thank you for your consideration !
