It is with great sadness that I announce that Lions’ player, Jordan Jones, passed away yesterday (16 July). Jordan was the eldest of five children and his grandfather, Dennis Jones, played a big part in both his upbringing and introducing him to ice hockey. Dennis was a short-track speed skating coach and started taking Jordan skating when he was only three years old. Jordan loved hockey very much and the family have been touched by people’s kind words.
Jordan was in Cyprus when he died, so his funeral arrangements have not yet been made. The family have said, however, that everyone who knew Jordan will be welcome to come along. As soon as I’ve been forwarded the details I shall post them on the site.
On behalf of everyone involved with Lee Valley Lions, we send our sincere condolences to Jordan’s family, friends and girlfriend.
