Chadwick, Jordan Dean, Pewaukee, WI.

Passed suddenly  August  13, 2022 doing what he loved  the most, spending time with his wife and friends while enjoying a great cigar and scotch. Loving husband of wife Karen (nee Kaniewski).  Father of Nathan”Nate”, Kayla (Colin) Thorpe, Troy (Rebecca) .  Grandpa to Tate and Jace Chadwick and Lizzie and Cormac Thorpe.  Further survived by brothers  Kelly and Scott and sister Rebecca Stanley, step-mother Leota, mother-in-law Rita Kaniewski, aunts and uncles, nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, other relatives and friends.

Born to Leslie and Leona Chadwick on September 17, 1957 and united in marriage to his love Karen on November 22, 1980.  Jordan was an amazing husband, father, grandfather and friend.  Jordan dedicated his life to serving others, first through his careers in funeral planning and long-term financial planning, and also with his services to the Lions Club.  He was a graduate of Fort Atkinson High School and Milwaukee Area Technical College.  Jordan was employed as a Financial Advisor at Central Financial Services in West Allis, WI.

Jordan was a lifetime member of the Oak Creek Lions Club, having served in numerous leadership positions both for the Oak Creek Club, Lions District 27-A1 and the Wisconsin Lions on a state level.  He was a recipient of the Melvin Jones Fellowship, the Birch-Sturm Fellowship, Ray Hempel Fellowship and a Knight of Sight Fellowship.

Jordan was an amazing and dedicated father to his children-Nate, Kayla and Troy.  He coached countless baseball and basketball teams throughout the years.  He was most excited to finally be a grandfather to his grandchildren-Tate, Jace, Lizzie and Cormac.  He will also be missed by his beloved grand-dogs Chauncey and Maverick.

Jordan was a fixture in local parades with his baby blue classic 1966 Cadillac Deville convertible.  In his later years, Jordan became a cigar aficionado through his relationships at Lake Country Cigar.  You could find him either at the cigar shop watching Packer or Badger games or on his deck enjoying the Brewer game with a good cigar and a scotch.

He loved his wife, Karen, fiercely.  He called her Saint Karen for the patience she exhibited while he followed his many passions.  Together, they enjoyed entertaining family and friends at their home, traveling, having a nice dinner out and a cocktail on their deck.

To know Jordan was to love him and he will be forever missed by all who crossed his path.  As his last act of service, Jordan’s eye tissue and corneas were donated to the Lions Eye Bank of Wisconsin.

Visitation to be held on Sunday, August 21, 2022 from 3PM-7PM (at 6PM a short Lions ritual and Parish prayer service will be held) at Heritage Funeral Home (4800 S. 84th St.) Additional Visitation and Mass to be held on Monday, August 22, 2022 from 9AM-10AM and Mass at 10AM at Saints Peter and Paul PNCC (1308 15th Ave, South Milwaukee.) Burial to follow Mass at Chapel Hill Cemetery (4775 S 60th St, Greenfield.)

Memorials to the family appreciated.

    Karen and family,

    Mike and I are deeply sorry for your loss. Jordan will be sorely missed. We personally will miss seeing him on the deck watching the Brewers, and literally hearing him yell in celebration of a great play or a home run by the Brewers. We will really miss his bigger than life personality. We know he’s having laughs and drinks with Tom again.

    Karen and family:

    So sorry for your loss of Jordan! I met Jordan at a church retreat in Ft. Atkinson while in high school. We then surprised each other on the first day of Mortuary School at MATC.. It’s a long but funny story.

    He was always a positive guy who loved baseball and other sports.

    So sorry for your loss.

    Karen and family. I can’t tell you how saddened I was to hear about Jordan. Please accept my deepest condolences. While I only got to know Jordan in the last few years the one thing that stood out to me was character and integrity always hit the door first. He was a fine man and many have lost a great friend.

    JORDAN was like a brother to me. We met at Cigar Shop 3/4 days a week 9 AM and share stories and laughs. JORDAN was very insightful and truly sharp Business Man. Very generous was he and big Sports fan. Loved his Family. Our children are roughly same age as JORDAN and I were same age so we clicked on all Topics we covered. I loved JORDAN and sadly miss him yet I know he is on the Tee in Heaven. Love, Dougie Doug Pfaff.
