I’ve known Jordan for just over a year now. I invited him to come stay with my family and I to see if he could handle leaving Louisiana. Out of all of the friends I’ve helped out over the years, he has impressed me the most. He leaves a great impression on everyone he meets. Also, if you get a chance to meet Jordan, ask him about his hoarder house experience. You’ll be glad you did.-Justin Williams
