Jordan Westley Burkhart
1989 -2021


A Man who was always destined to change the world. From birth to death, he lived his life, his way.
He was born in Boise, Idaho, May 8, 1989 -8:00am. Raised in Boise and Meridian, Idaho. He attended Meridian elementary schools, Meridian Middle, graduated from Meridian High School, May 2007. He received his Bachelors of Fine Arts degree from the Academy of Art Institute. May 2012.


Jordan came into this world loud and clear about his plan. Curious and alert from birth, he carried through his 32 years of life.
He asked all the questions, researched and debated all the answers.
He needed to be heard, with tenacity to keep going until we listened.
His creativity was inside him every moment. His love language to communicate through, drawing, painting, sketching, sculpting, building, sharing.

Every text, card he gave, message he sent was from his heart and what the person receiving needed to know and hear.
Jordan’s words on Linkedin:
“After growing up in the open fields of Idaho with plenty of room for thoughts, I became obsessed with translating those thoughts into reality. I love having the ability to concept, create, and design the world around me. In these recent times of major global changes, I plan to create, and design businesses that will have strong influences in this new world that we are entering.”
Jordan would not bend on doing something that was not best for the Planet.
He identified the most with Native American’s who understood the sacredness of loving the Earth. His Dad shared his love of searching and collecting arrowheads. Jordan loved the Warrior heart of Native American people.

He led with heart, he taught us to live and not judge, he healed the broken hearted.
Jesus our Lord, called him home. Our Blessed Mother Mary will teach me how to live without my Son, who also changed the world. The Holy Spirit will hold me tight in my sadness. He is at peace now.
From his Bonus Mom, Noella:

“When Jordan was called to heaven, Jesus said, my Father wants to see you. God said, my child you were not made to save the world, that’s my job. Welcome to your new home, where nothing but joy and happiness will surround you.”
