Jordan wasn’t all work and no play in college, he found his wonderful girlfriend, Kat Coatley, who he shares an apartment with. They adopted three black cats together: Itsy, Bitsy, and Rolin Roscoe James. They are all from the same litter, Itsy and Bitsy do not have tails, but James does. When Jordan isn’t walking his cats or spending time with Kat, he likes to play chess, go on nature hikes, and care for his many succulents.
