It was revealed in April that Jordan had saved seven lives (all between the ages of 20 to 50) after his organs were donated following his death. Soldiers and other burns victims also benefitted from skin grafts that were created following his donation.
In a career tragically cut short, Jordan played for Huddersfield Town, Altrincham, Bury, FC Halifax Town, Chesterfield and Alfreton Town before his career ended with the Gladiators. While his time at Matlock Town was brief, Jordan Sinnott will always be remembered by everyone associated with the club.
Jordan was also known as Jord by his family, Sin by his friends.
From the moment Jord could walk he wanted to kick a football and it became his world. Everyday he was either playing football, watching football, or talking about football.
Right from an early age Jord’s dream was to become a professional footballer and through sheer determination his dream came true.
Jord was a cheeky, funny, loving young man with a smile and laugh that would light up any room. You only had to meet him once and you felt you had known him all your life.
Jord had time for those who needed him and anyone who knew and spent time with him would say “They were a better person for knowing him.” He loved giving a hug and telling the special people in his life how much he loved them. Jord was so easy to love in return.
Losing Jord so young was heartbreaking for us all and what better way to pay tribute to an exceptional young man by creating his charity in his name. Keeping Jord’s legacy alive by doing what Jord would have wanted; ‘Giving to others and helping people less fortunate.’
His memory will live on, not only through his charity but the gift he gave to Kelly, his fiancée, their beautiful daughter Maisie Jordan Sinnott.
Always in our heart xxx
