Jordan was born on December 29, 1988 to Judi and Scott Steelman in New Providence, IA.
Jordan is survived by his mother Judi Steffenson, and father Scott Steelman. He is also survived by his grandfather Gene Steelman; brothers: Scott Endriss, Joshua Tolbert, Justin Steelman, Nick Steelman, Dusty Steelman; sister Andrea Sharkey; stepbrother Travis Steffenson; stepsister Tracy Steffenson; and his many nieces and nephews. Jordan was also blessed to have Dave Davidson in his life as well as his loving, faithful service dog Domino.
He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, paternal grandmother, step-great-grandmother, step-grandmother, and his stepfather John Steffenson (whom he was very close to).
Jordan had a great sense of humor and his laugh was infectious! He was an avid gamer, loved music, watching movies, hanging out with family and friends, driving his car, fishing, and cooking (especially smoking meat on his Traeger). In his younger years, he enjoyed skateboarding and riding his dirt bike (not horses)!
Jordan’s friends and family meant the world to him. If you were his friend, you were his friend for life whether you met him in Iowa, Arizona, or South Dakota. A close childhood friend summed Jordan up well, "Jordan was an old school soul in a young man’s body and if you broke through his hard exterior you found an absolute heart of gold!"
Jordan fought more battles and demons than most will ever see, but he went out a Superman with eight months of sobriety thanks to Avera treatment program (Wentworth) in Aberdeen, SD.
