Donald Jordan, Jr.

Donald Jordan, Jr.

President

Donald H. Jordan, Jr. was born October 2nd in Cincinnati, Ohio to Rev. Donald H. and Katherine C. Jordan. He is the youngest of three sons.

Donald received his primary education from Bethany School in Glendale, Ohio and attended Moeller High School in Cincinnati, Ohio graduating in the spring of 1997. Upon graduation from high school, Donald attended Wright State University in Fairborn, Ohio for one year and then transferring to the University of Cincinnati. Upon his departure from the University of Cincinnati, Donald enrolled in The Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science and received his Bachelor of Mortuary Science Degree on September 22, 2001.

Donald served as the General Manager for Thompson, Hall & Jordan Funeral Homes from 2001 until the spring of 2010. As General Manager, Donald was responsible for the day to day operations of the family's ten locations spread throughout Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. In 2010, Donald felt another calling upon his life and entered law enforcement. Donald served the communities of Woodlawn, Ohio and Forest Park, Ohio as a police officer for almost seven years.

On January 2, 2017, Donald's father Rev. Donald H. Jordan, Sr. closed his eyes for the last time on this earth to wake up in Heaven. Prior to his fathers death, Donald made a promise that he would return to the business full time to build upon his father's legacy. Just over a month after his fathers death, Donald decided to step out on faith and open his own funeral home in memory of his father. He decided to name the funeral home the Donald Jordan Memorial Chapel. In just a few short months, Donald has purchased the former Emmanuel Baptist Church in Middletown, Ohio which will be a new chapel and community center and opened a brand new location in Hamilton, Ohio located at 4083 Pleasant Ave. In June of 2017, a new Middletown, Ohio location opened at 3520 Roosevelt Blvd. This location houses the business office for Middletown. Donald is currently working on opening a third location to serve the Dayton, Ohio area which is scheduled to be open by the end of 2017. Donald is determined to build upon what his father taught him, which is to provide a first class service at a price that every family can afford.

Donald is a Licensed Funeral Director and Embalmer in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana as well as a Licensed Insurance Agent in Ohio and Notary Public.

Donald holds memberships in the National Funeral Directors Association, Ohio Funeral Directors Association, Buckeye State Funeral Directors Association, National Funeral Directors and Morticians Association, Kentucky Funeral Directors Association, Indiana Funeral Directors Association, Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. and is a founding member of Street Ryderz Motorcycle Club.

Although Donald is a Funeral Director by profession, he is also an FAA Licensed Pilot, a state certified peace officer and a motorcycle enthusiast. Donald is married to the former Toni L. Headen and has three children; Amber, Blaire and Donald, III.
