“Jordan brought his big brain and strong heart to everything and everybody he touched. And he made them better. He was never too busy to give good advice and encouragement to young people. And he never gave up on his friends or his country,” the Clintons said in a joint statement.

They called Jordan “a wonderful friend… in good times and bad. We worked and played, laughed and cried, won and lost together. We loved him very much and always will.”
