Our husband, son, father, brother, nephew, uncle, cousin, friend and warrior Jordan J. Hill lived a life of love, hope and kindness. Jordan passed away peacefully on August 9th, 2019 after a long, courageous fight crushing cancer. He had one last Seahawks win and one last Hill family pizza party in the hospital! Jordan was #6 of 13 kids and grew up in Columbia City. He loved to tell stories about Seafair, St. Edwards school, playing football and wrestling at Ingraham High School, playing in the Kingdome and winning state, fishing in Alaska, and coaching his brother’s little league team. Even through personal tragedies Jordan chose to have hope, to live life, to be happy, and to love. He had a smile that would light up a room and people’s hearts. Jordan loved the Seahawks and loved going to games. He loved to adventure and go on road trips to the Oregon coast, Orcas Island, Vegas, Huntington Beach and Disneyland. Jordan loved WWE wrestling, pizza, hot links, teriyaki, Elvis, playing music, getting his hair cut, Mariners’ games, Nike shoes, comic book T-shirts, and his mom’s cooking. He especially loved his mom Melva’s lasagna, spaghetti, and famous ice cream Jello. Jordan loved talking on the phone and messaging his Ingraham High family and all the other friends he met along his journey. Jordan loved his St. Mary’s family. He loved taking his mom to church, volunteering at coffee hour and the St. Mary’s Food Bank, celebrating at the Italian Festival, Mardi Gras, and the Irish breakfast, and visiting with people. Jordan was the guy who would go over to the person who was new, sitting alone at coffee hour, and make them feel welcome and at home. Jordan was the guy who would call you or write you a card and make you feel so loved and important. Jordan was the guy who remembered the little things and asked about your loved ones, even if he hadn’t met them. Jordan loved his dogs Bruno and Jackson and taking them for walks. Jordan loved his wife Liana. When he met her, he said, “hey tall girl” and they loved each other deeply for 22 years. Through happiness and heartache, adventure and the little everyday things, they walked through life together hand in hand. After the loss of their son Henry, Jordan found comfort, love, friendship, understanding, and healing from his amazing P.S Parent Support group family. Jordan loved his family and he was happiest when he was with them. Jordan loved all the Hill family parties, BBQ’s, going to the beach cottage, watching the Seahawks and teaching us about the game, the annual family reunion camping trip, going to the movies, the pumpkin toss at Thanksgiving, going to Starbucks for coffee, birthdays at the Old Spaghetti Factory, the Swedish club for pancake breakfast, Bumbershoot, going for walks at Seward, going out for pizza and to IHOP and Azteca, ski trips, camping at Peach Beach, swimming at Madison, chilling on the back porch, going to the Silver Fork with his dad Frank, sitting around playing music, and just talking on the phone. Jordan was a protector to all his sisters. They took care of him and his brothers gave him strength when he was weak. Jordan experienced life and had fun with his cousins. He loved his Aunties dearly and learned from his Uncles. As an Uncle, Jordan gave his time, attention and love to all his nieces and nephews. He loved spending time with them, he cared about them, and if you saw a kid with a pack of gum it probably came from Uncle Jordan. Jordan’s mom Melva, his dad Frank, and his granny Sylvia created a foundation of love, family and helping others. They all helped him grow to be the man he was. Jordan is survived by his wife Liana, his mom Melva, Liana’s parents Carol, Frank, and Ursula, his brothers and sisters Mark and Dimana, Allen, Frankie, Carol and Mark, Jody and Bethany, Susan, Crystal, Christian, Keren, Jake and Desire, Julie, Deanna and Ruben, Theresa and Pete, and Barb and Cyn, his aunts and uncles Walt and Esther, Larry, Dan and Chris, John and Diane, Mike, and Sharon, his nieces and nephews Doraya and Jason, Addie and Brandi, Sophia and Rachel, Danica and Ryan, Justin and Christian, Legion, Naima and Kane, Francesca, and Clara, Dimpal, Diamond, and Steven Jr., Mykel, Angel and Jacob, his Godson Julian, Lucas, Zack, and Wattson, Alex, and Sammy, his great-niece Nami, and his cousins Brian, Heather and Rebecca, Jeff, Karen, Gina and Renee, Teresa and Anastasia, Christina, Cynthia, and Keri, Richie, Brandyn, Ross, and Sean.
When you remember Jordan, remember the way he made you feel, his smile, his laugh, and the love he had for all of us!
