Emerson Alumni Featured in Bicycling Magazine

Written by Christina Trujillo


Jordan graduated from Emerson Middle School in August 2006 and from Menlo-Atherton High School in 2010.  He completed all his lower division college work at Pierce College in Woodland Hills, California, and will transfer shortly to a four-year program to finish his bachelor’s degree in engineering.

In the meantime, he has been training for both triathlon and biking competitions.  Last year, he moved up from a Class 3 rating to a Class 2 biking rating.  He has also been creating videos of major biking races, including the assembly of the official Tour de California race last spring.

He recently began work as a half-time engineering intern at a high-tech company in the San Fernando Valley.  He is also a digital marketing manager for a bike shop and cyclists’ restaurant in the valley and has thousands of followers on his biking blogs and Instagram.  GoPro is one of his sponsors.

Congrats, Jordan!
