Im so sorry for your lost.

Mrs. Jordan taught me thru the Medical Assistant Program in 1987-1989. I was one of the first graduating classes of the MA Program at Phillips Business College then name changed to Miller Motte.

She was a Great teacher/ instructor/ mentor!! I have worked in the medical field since 1990 and have never been without a job. I give much credit to Mrs. Jordan. I leaned so much under her leadership and guidance and friendship during the time that I really needed it. If it had not been for the teacher she was I don't know if I would be where i am today. I am thankful!
I always wanted to be a Mrs.
Jordan when i graduated and grew up . I did both but I haven't come close to being a Mrs. Jordan in the health care field :)

The family is in my thoughts and prayers. I know she will be missed by many.
