On Tuesday January 16, 2018 Jordan was moving cattle on a ranch near Crescent Junction Utah. Something he has done many times before without problem, but this time as he went to dismount the horse, the horse spooked and he ended up underneath the horse's front legs and the horse's leg hit Jordan in the front part of his face. Many miracles happened to save his life and his cowboy guradian angels were watching over him. The EMS crews did an amazing job to preserve his life and he was eventually stablized and airlifted to St. Mary's Medical Center in Grand Junction, Colorado. The doctors and nurses have been amazed by his grit and toughness that come so naturally to him. Although he has made amazing progress, he is going to need some time to heal and will be unable to work for an extended time. Although he works very hard doing what he loves, he doesn't have medical insurance. The road to recovery is going to be a long and an expensive one. He has already had one surgery to repair the broken bones in his face and will require at least an additional surgery in the future as well as some dental work.
From a very young age Jordan has always been a cowboy and has had a love and respect for horses. For those of you who know Jordan, you know that he is an amazing horseman. He is well known for his rodeo skills and breaking in horses and is well respected in the profession. Our family has felt the overwhelming support that everybody has given him. Many prayers have been said in his behalf and they have helped lift him. Many friends and family have asked how they can help so I have set this up to give people a direction to help if they would like to. Our family appreciates all the love and support we have felt and Jordan also wishes to express his most heart-felt thank you!
