Jiordan was born Jan. 19, 1987, the son of Robert and Andre (nee Hirth) DiStasio. Jiordan was a plumbing apprentice at his parents’ company, J.R. Plumbing, and his life goal was to someday own the company with his dad. He completed his apprenticeship and was a member of the Plumbers Local #75. Jiordan enjoyed playing soccer, baseball and tennis. He graduated from Waukesha South High School where he was ranked No. 1 doubles in tennis. Jiordan was an avid reader and also enjoyed playing video games and bowling. He loved attending Brewers and Packers games, especially for tailgating. Jiordan’s happy and carefree personality brought joy to everyone around him. Because of his generosity and huge heart, he was always there to help a friend in need.
