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.

Jordan is using his platform to raise awareness and hopefully soon find a cure for Pulmonary Fibrosis.
