Michael Wess Jordan

May 12, 1947 ~ November 23, 2020 (age 73)


Michael Wess Jordan, 73, of Mt. Vernon, Texas, passed away on November 23, 2020.

Michael is survived by his wife Janet of 49 years; son, Josh Jordan and his wife Kayce; daughter, Julianne Evans and her husband Jason; brother, Jack Dale Jordan and his wife Jo, and grandchildren, Emerson Jordan, Gillis Evans, Katherine Jordan and Jordan Evans.  Michael was preceded in death by his sister Micki Jordan and his parents, Joe and Jean Jordan.

Mike was born and raised in Mt. Vernon, Texas.  Growing up he was a great athlete, playing most every sport.  He attended East Texas State University (now Texas A&M Commerce) where he graduated with a degree in Business Administration.  Never one to shy away from hard work, Mike started out selling office equipment out of college and then soon bought his first nursing home.  From there he continued his success in the healthcare industry and eventually grew his family’s home healthcare business, Jordan Health Services, into one of the most successful home healthcare companies in Texas. 

Outside of work, Mike enjoyed spending time with his family and carrying on family traditions.  One of his favorite family traditions was cooking his fried quail breakfast every Christmas morning.  Other than his family, Mike’s other passions were hunting, fishing and shooting.  He was a competitive skeet shooter for many years and enjoyed traveling and taking hunting trips with friends.  His travels took him all over the world, eventually visiting six continents.

Visitation will be from 5:00 until 7:00 pm at Sam B. Harvey Funeral Home on Friday, November 27th. Funeral services for Mike will be at First United Methodist Church in Mt. Vernon on Saturday, November 28th at 1:00 pm.  A private funeral will be held at Pleasant Grove Cemetery in Cumby for family at 10:00 am on Saturday before the funeral services.
