NCCF's board and staff are saddened by the death of John R. Jordan, Jr., a former member of NCCF's statewide board, who served our organization and so many others throughout our state with distinction. Jordan joined NCCF's board in 1990 and was also a fundholder. A link to his obituary from Raleigh's News & Observer is here, where his accomplishments as a lawyer, champion of education and former state senator are detailed. A private family burial was planned. The family suggests that memorial gifts can be made to several organizations and causes, including the Winton N.C. Jordan Family Heritage Fund in care of NCCF. Gifts to the fund can be made online or mailed to NCCF at 4601 Six Forks Road, Raleigh 27609.
