"Jordan is an old-fashioned triple threat. When onstage his enthusiasm, passion, and talent compel you to watch him. When offstage his curious spirit and generous heart simply make you want to be around him.” Michele Pawk (Wagner College Performing Arts Faculty - 2003 Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a play - Hollywood Arms).
