William Jordan Stephens left this world Monday, September 13, 2021 after only 42 years. Jordan was the embodiment of a loving, soulful man. He was kind, giving and the best friend anyone could have. Born August 25, 1979 in Lubbock, Texas to Barbara and Don Stephens, he spent most of his life in San Antonio and graduated from Marshall High School in 1998. He attended college at Texas Lutheran University on a football scholarship and later UTSA. He married his soulmate Stacey Shykes on February 12, 2000. Jordan and Stacey were committed to build a loving family. Jordan was a licensed real estate appraiser and worked for World Savings for many years and was most recently with USAA.

Jordan was committed to giving his children the best life they could know. He was involved with Northside Suburban Little League for many years, coaching both his sons. Jordan loved coaching and found a family in all the great kids he coached over the years. Jordan also had a passion for the shotgun sports. Since he was introduced to the sport, his favorite weekend activity was going out to shoot with his family.

Jordan grew up vacationing at Lake LBJ with family since he was very young, and he always loved the area. This was Jordan’s happy place and he and his family moved to Highland Haven in 2019. The last two years of living near the lake and close to the hill country were the happiest years of his life.

Jordan is preceded in heaven by his grandparents Bernie and Cleo Streiff and Don and Emma Stephens, and nephew Shane Moeller.

Jordan leaves behind his mother Barbara Streiff, father Don Stephens, brothers Chris (Elizabeth) Stephens and Steven (Laura) Sykes, nephews Mason and Sawyer Stephens, Ethan Sykes, Kyle Moeller, and nieces Ellie Sykes and Chelsea Moeller. Jordan also leaves his wife Stacey, sons Conner and Cameron, daughter Courtney (Matthew) and new grandson Dylan Darragh.

We know that Jordan is celebrating in heaven and in the loving arms of Jesus.

A Celebration of Life service will be held at 2pm on Saturday, September 18th at the First United Methodist Church Marble Falls, internment following at Lakeland Hills Memorial Park in Burnet.

Services are being coordinated by Clements-Wilcox Funeral Home in Marble Falls. Donations may be made to the ALS Association of Texas at https://www.alstexas.org/donate/ or the Northside Suburban Little League at https://www.sanorthside.org/sponsor/sponsorship-information/

The Stephens have always been my family. I have been a part of their family since 1st grade. I have shared countless memories with Jordan, Stacey, Courtney, Conner, and Cameron. Most of our memories took place in their home. It was my second home. My favorite place to go. I would walk in and say, "Family, I'm home!" every time! I remember I would go upstairs, and Jordan would be playing video games on all his monitors. Who knew a guy needed so many? He even had a TV over his desk to watch Netflix. I remember one 4th of July I spent the week at the lake with them. I'm so happy I did! I got to meet all of Jordan's side of the family. They are all so lovely and are so welcoming. Jordan took me on my first boat ride on the lake. He and Courtney convinced me and our friend, Hanna, to go on the innertube. Bad Idea! It was a very bumpy ride, and Jordan saw the perfect opportunity to flip our tube. A boat had just passed ours, and he took the sharpest turn and flipped us over. Courtney Hanna and I flew so high in the air and landed so hard in the water.Jordan could not stop laughing and couldn't believe how perfect that was. I swore I wouldn't do another tube ride because of how painful that tube flip was, but I was willing to give it another try for Jordan if he asked me, but thankfully, he didn't. I am only sharing a few memories of Jordan because there are so many to chose from. Jordan will always be in my heart, and most importantly, he will never be forgotten. I will miss his dad jokes, his laugh, him playing video games in his room, playing in the back yard with Bailey, and I will mostly miss hanging out with the family altogether. I will always cherish the memories we all spent together. The Stephens will always be my family. I love you all. Love Always Lexi Esquibel <3

Jordan was part of the USAA Appraisal Team for just shy of 9 years. He was a licensed appraiser, Conventional Certified REVA and a SAR. To us, he was also a team player, a mentor and a friend. Jordan’s life revolved around his family and he spent many years coaching little league, baseball and softball. He recently was very excited and happy to become a grandfather. His life had changed, which allowed him and his wife Stacey to spend more time at the lake. He was finally able to buy his big red boat, but his time off still revolved around family just in a different way. Jordan was one of the nicest people you would ever want to meet and was a great guy who will be sorely missed for all his attributes that made him so great.

We got to know Jordan as a new neighbor to our area for the last two years. We were blown away by his energy. Constantly working around his new home and wow, his talent for wood work. He was so jovial and friendly. Our deepest condolences to his family.

Jordan and I were best friends at Oak Hills Terrace Elementary. We spent so much times at each others houses in those young days, and even stayed connected when he moved out of Leon Valley.

Jordan always had a smile and a kind word whenever we would run into each other over these last 20 years. So glad we got to catch up at JMHS 98 Reunion.

A true friend and genuine great human being, Jordan will be missed by all of us he connected with over the years, even if our paths drifted apart. May he rest in peace.
