A smile for Jordan


My heart goes out to the family of Isamu (Som) Jordan, who died Sept. 5. He was a beloved part of The Spokesman-Review newsroom when I worked there as an editorial assistant and was always polite and kind. He was not at all snooty like some of the other reporters who worked there at the time; he was always a “real” guy and was dedicated to what he did so well: writing. Whenever I saw his byline, I’d smile, as just the thought of Som brightened my day.

We have lost a wonderful man at a very young age, but I pray for peace and light for him now. I’m sure there are plenty of interesting stories and music for Som to cover in Heaven.
