I met Jordan through the Loyola Current, which is a student run maritime blog from the Loyola University New Orleans College of Law. It is safe to say that the Loyola Current took shape and found its sea legs under Jordan’s direction. His accomplishment is no small feat considering that Jordan juggled the Loyola Current with the Loyola Maritime Law Journal, 3L classes, and working at the Coast Guard.
After law school, Jordan joined my old firm. Respected colleagues praised his character and work ethic. The praise was well-deserved. Jordan impressed me with his kind demeanor, tenacity, and skill as an attorney.
A memorial will be held for Jordan in Lake Charles, LA on August 15th from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. at the Johnson Funeral Home. All are welcomed to attend.
Family members have also started a Go Fund Me page, which can be accessed at http://www.gofundme.com/JordanMcFaull. The fund is “being organized to assist Jordan’s family with travel expenses and mostly to raise money and awareness for the Juvenile Diabetes Association in lieu of flowers.” Please make a donation in Jordan’s memory. For more information about juvenile diabetes, visit the JDRF (formerly the “Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation”).
RIP Jordan Guzzino McFaull (1988-2015).
