Born in rural Ohio, Jordan showed a natural talent for athletics at an early age.
He won four state titles in high school wrestling and proceeded to win back-to-back NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships in 1985 and 1986.
Jordan worked as an assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State University before going into politics.
Recent reports falsely claim that Jordan was warned about the predatory behavior of Richard Strauss, the team’s now-deceased doctor, only to look the other way.
The media’s eagerness to report these claims stands in stark contrast to the Jeffrey Epstein cover-up at ABC News.
In reality, interviews with former wrestlers reveal that locker room jokes about Dr. Strauss were common, but multiple wrestlers have stated that there was nothing at the time – including no allegations of sexual abuse – to suggest Jordan and the coaching staff should have taken action.
