Jordan learned at a very young age the importance of giving back but he never imagined that he would be giving back to a cause near and dear to his heart. At the age of 12, Jordan’s father, Dr. Reginald “Doc” Howard passed away at the age of 52 from complications with Pulmonary Fibrosis. As soon as Jordan entered the NFL, he began working with the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation in Chicago, Illinois to help increase awareness of Pulmonary Fibrosis. Jordan is using his platform to raise awareness and hopefully soon find a cure for Pulmonary Fibrosis.

Faith Without Works
Jordan was taught at a very early age that he is not responsible for how people treat him but he is responsible for how he treats others. With that philosophy being instilled in him at a very young age, he can be found giving back to those in need whether as a public servant or as an anonymous giver, he finds joy in helping other.
