Robert Jeffery Jordan, Jr.

Jeff Jordan passed away on Friday, January 31, 2020 in Ennis, Texas.

Jeff was born in Fort Worth, Texas on August 11, 1968 to Pamela and Robert Jordan. Jeff grew up in Fort Worth and attended high school at Carter Riverside. Jeff started working at Winn-Dixie grocery store at age 16 for 18 years and continued his career with H-E-B in Ennis after Winn-Dixie left Texas until his passing at age 51.

Jeff was a big kid at heart. He liked to have fun and was always looking for a good laugh. One thing he loved most was to tell stories. You could tell he was very aware of his surroundings in the way he could tell a story so good because he could see things most of us couldn’t see. His stories were so detailed that you knew he appreciated every moment of his life. He always had a good story to tell because he lived a life worth telling, and if you know Jeff you know he is creating new stories for us now in Heaven and will be waiting to tell us all about them when we meet again. He paid attention to people and liked to hear their stories as well; he really could make you feel special.

Jeff was always known as a hard worker; his co-workers and customers could always rely on him to be there. He earned the title of Signature Partner at HEB and received awards such as the Because People Matter award because he treated his customers so well. According to HEB a signature partner “is someone who a Customer will drive past multiple competitors to see. They connect with customers because it fills their bucket, not because it’s expected.” Jeff would tell his family all about his customers and how they would come in every day to see him. He was very proud of these relationships he made.

Jeff was a natural born hunter. He loved to hunt and fish, not only the act of hunting but the time spent in nature or on the lake. As much as he loved to hunt in nature, he loved to hunt for opportunities to make someone happy. He would go above and beyond to create a unique, memorable experience. This was apparent in all the vacations he would take his family on. From crab fishing to digging for gold to late night poker games to staying in the most haunted room at a haunted hotel, it was never a dull moment on one of Jeff’s trips.

While Jeff did love to hunt game, he also had a love for animals like no one you’ve ever seen. He had quite a few dogs over the years that he loved more than his own children, as they liked to jokingly say. He had many other pets that he cared for throughout his lifetime as well; cats, horses, pigs, chickens, birds, rabbits… he was like a reallife Dr. Dolittle in the way he would communicate with animals.

Jeff and Marie loved going to antique shops and were always working on new, creative projects for their house. He loved to show off their findings and creations whenever people came to visit. His granddaughters especially loved this, they said Papa’s house was the best house because he always had the neatest things to show them. Jeff also enjoyed anything connected to cowboy culture. Whether it was a gunslinging, horseback riding, whiskey drinking cowboy, or his favorite team the Dallas Cowboys. He had loyalty as well, so much loyalty that he always said Tony Romo would be the one to take the Cowboys to the Superbowl.

Jeff is survived by his loving wife of 20 years, Sylvia Marie Jordan; daughter, Jessica Davis and husband Jerod Davis; son, Spencer Bailey; two grand-daughters Jocelyn and Jordan Davis; Mother, Pam Gerland; Sisters, Denise Jordan and Tina Belcher; Grandfather, Curtis Bollier and his 12 nieces and nephews.

Jeff is preceded in death by his father Robert Jordan Sr.

A memorial service was held at the Avenue Church, 906 S. Kaufman St. Ennis, TX 75119 on Wednesday, February 12, 2020 at 10:00 a.m.

Jeff was cremated; his family will have a private interment in Granbury, TX at the Holly Hill Memorial Park Cemetery at a later time.

Instead of flowers the family requests that memorials be made to the Avenue Church in Jeff’s name.
