Karl Lawrence Jordan

Karl Lawrence Jordan, born October 18, 1965 in Pasadena, Texas, died August 2nd 2023, from diabetic complications. Karl loved world history, military and political strategy, philosophy, memorizing poetry and fantasy gaming. As an Explorer Scout he mastered canoeing and rock climbing and planning “delicious” meals from canned foods. After attending Clear Lake High school Karl graduated from University of Houston in 1990 with a Bachelor of Science in Political Science and began a 30-year career with the City of Houston department of Public Works & Engineering. A Russian language course at Rice University provided the fluency he needed for several trips to Russia in the ’90s.
