I just found out that last summer, James R. Jordan passed away.
Mr. Jordan was one of my first professors at Colorado State University. I had him in my freshman year for Ancient Greek Language. He was one of the nicest professors I had there, and his good humor shone through every day of class. He was also very patient with my constant questions about the language. All of his students, at least the ones in the class I took from him, liked him a lot.
A collage in his memory has been posted here.
