Born in Beech Hill, he was a son of the late Robert and Cesaire (Blaney) Inness.
Jordan grew up on the family farm working long hard hours, living a simple life style. He left his young family at home and entered the Merchant Marines in WWII (1941 – 1945).

He then returned home and was employed as a hydro engineer with the Nova Scotia Power Commission for twenty two years, retiring in 1988. Jordan always had a love for horses and the outdoors, but above all else Jordan was most passionate about his family and spending time with them.
