I was cleaning out my desk today when I found Fred's phone number. I worked with Fred for 2 years from 1983-1985 at General Electric in Lynn, MA before he left to go to Tuck. We were close friends during that time and we both pondered our futures together and he decided to pursue an MBA and I left to go to law school. I was about to call him when I decided to google him and I learned of

Fred's Dad was my homeroom and Chemistry Teacher. I always admired Fred as an all around well adapted person. After reading all the comments, it seems like Fred was very active in helping others. I just found out recently about his passing and I want to reach out to all affected.

Fred was a senior at Amherst College when I was a mere freshman, but I remember him vividly when I joined the Amherst Glee Club. He had a deep resonate voice, a good sense of humor and was a born leader. He was welcoming to everyone and just struck me as someone that you should emulate and aspire to be like. He had an enthusiasm and zest for life. Reading all of these touching notes, I can see that he

I haven't seen Fred Jordan in at least 16 years. He was one of my bosses at the Forum Corporation. I just recently learned of his death - I was so shocked and so very sad as I know are so many of his friends and of course his family. I remember him to be so boistrous, full of life, funny, handsome, a real family man. I also remember he and I butt heads a little bit at the beginning

I am not certain why today I decided to go back and read the memories that so many wrote about fred. Ironically it is 6 months to the day of Fred's death, I had no idea. When you are caught up with the moment many may not take the time to read everything. For the past 45 minutes I have and it has been an enjoyable and amazing 45 minutes. The number of peole Fred influenced is remarkable. I only

Hey, Fred: Thank You for the Music

"Thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing
Thanks for all the joy they're bringing
Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty
What would life be?
Without a song or a dance what are we?
So I say thank you for the music
For giving it to me" (ABBA)

We miss you now, and always will.
Your California Jacobsen Family
