Jordan Andrew Nelson, died unexpectedly in Provo, Utah on March 3, 2020, at the young age of 51. Jordan lived with health problems related to diabetes for many years and we feel at peace knowing he is now free from his physical ailments. \n\nJordan was born on June 30, 1968, in Provo, Utah to Marvin Nels Nelson and Renee Cheney Nelson. He was the youngest of 5 handsome Nelson brothers who spent many years making wonderful memories together in the foothills of Provo. Jordan graduated from Timpview High School in 1986 and then furthered his education at Utah State, where he graduated with a Bachelor’s in Business Administration. \nAt a young age, Jordan assisted his brothers in maintaining and managing the grounds and tram of Bridal Veil Falls in Provo Canyon. It was at Bridal Veil, in 1989, that he met his sweetheart, Stephanie Odle. They married in 1992 and just recently divorced in 2019. \n\nJordan’s greatest pride and joy arrived in 1999 when his beautiful miracle daughter was born. McKenzie was his life and he made it his priority to love and protect her. He could most often be found watching movies or playing video games with McKenzie and their time together meant everything to him. Jordan will be remembered for the amazing father he was and his dedication to his “Angel.” \n\nJordan was preceded in death by his parents, Marvin and Renee and niece, Alexis Nelson.
