Jordan lived a very full, adventurous, abundant and joyful life. He was honored to serve his country and was a patriot to the core. He loved God deeply and attended Grace Fellowship Pickerington. Jordan’s favorite verse was James 1:12. He enjoyed hiking, fishing, history, playing and watching every sport, driving his lifted F350, listening to country music, taking care of his newly purchased home on Buckeye Lake, antiquing, traveling, watching movies with his sister late into the night, napping, lifting weights, drinking hot tea and eating home cooked meals with his momma, cheering on the Buckeyes and Browns with his dad, shooting hoops and long talks with his brother in law, sitting around the bonfire with his family and friends, snuggling with his dog Scruffy, but most of all he was inseparable from the love of his life, his niece, his little “rat”, the light of his life, Fiammetta. He was a cherished and loved “Uncle JJ” by Kristian and Fiammetta.
Jordan is survived by his mother, Cara Miller of Pickerington; father, Robert (Rebecca) Miller of Blacklick, sister Brooke (Miller) Nappo and brother-in-law Francis Nappo of Pickerington; niece, Fiammetta Nappo; grandmother, Barbara Heckathorn of Dublin; numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
