Jordan is currently enrolled in Georgetown University's Sports Industry Management graduate program. Jordan is a graduate of Southern Illinois University at Carbondale with a B.S. degree in Sport Administration and a minor in Marketing. He is also a graduate of Sports Management World Wide's Athlete Management Program and has earned the designation of Certified Agent Advisor.
Jordan has been involved in sports since he was young. As a senior in high school, Jordan was a captain on his Varsity basketball team when they won the IL Division 3A State Basketball Championship. As a college student Jordan continued playing basketball on his school's intramural and extramural basketball teams. This experience not only gave him the opportunity to play in tournaments at different colleges across the country but it also exposed him to the administrative and business side of basketball. Through camps and AAU teams, Jordan has also had the opportunity to teach basketball skills to children ages 5 - 12.
Although he enjoys playing basketball, during his senior year of college Jordan realized that he was very interested in being a sports agent. After graduating, Jordan enrolled in Lynn Lashbrooks’s Athlete Management course. Jordan understood that he had the ability to evaluate an athlete's strengths, weaknesses and potential, as well as an innate understanding of the needs of athletes. Jordan found it easy to connect with college student athletes, as an athlete himself he understood the pressures they were under and he had the ability to make them feel comfortable confiding in him. As a result of Jordan's Sports Management major and Marketing minor, he had knowledge of and access to many educational, nutritional and counseling programs that he could tell the athletes about.
As your Agent Advisor, Jordan will get to know you in order to understand your current and future goals. He will work with you to create a plan that will allow you to meet and possibly exceed your goals. Jordan wants you to be able to focus all of your attention on your game on and off the court or field; so by partnering with Sports Management World Wide, he is able to provide assistance with all aspects of your personal and professional needs, such as financial services, marketing, endorsements and sponsorships, and post career planning.
Jordan believes that creating a true friendship with his client and family is essential for an honest, close relationship that could last a lifetime.
