Donald J. Jordan age 85 of Trumbull passed away peacefully on Tuesday, September 3, 2019 with his family by his side three days prior to his 60th Wedding Anniversary to his devoted wife Shirley Atanas Jordan. Born in Bridgeport, he was the son of the late Edward and Jessie Palsak Jordan. A former resident of Easton where he held a position on the Easton Zoning Board of Appeals for 26 years and was the chairman for 14 years. He was a Justice of the Peace for the Town of Easton and a member of the Republican Town Committee. He graduated Warren Harding High School in Bridgeport and the Lee Institute of real estate. Donald was the former printing manager of the Bridgeport Post for 39 years and had also worked for Southern CT Newspaper Inc. for 7 ½ years retiring in August 2000. A religious and devoted parishioner of St. George Albanian Orthodox Church, he founded the Men’s League of St. George Orthodox Church in Trumbull and was instrumental in raising over $65,000 for the church building fund. In 1990, he was named a Standard Bearer of the Holy Illria for devoted service to St. George Church. This was presented by His Holiness Theodoius, Archbishop of Washington and Metropolitan of North and South America. Donald loved spending time with his family, especially the Jordan Family reunions.
