Hi I'm Jordan

I live in Layton Utah with Hollie & raise 3 boys & 2 dogs. I sell software from the SOC & live the Ironman life. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Layton Utah with a great childhood. My parents gave me a tremendous amount of freedom as a young boy where I would ride off on my diamond back dirt bike and rome the nearby neighborhoods, up and down hills along with the local dirt trails I felt were like HellTrack from the movie Rad. I learned to be fiercely loyal to my friends and family during those young years and had a ball getting dirty, finding trouble & having fun. I have two brothers and two sisters and find myself smack dab in the middle. I have always felt close to my siblings and even to this day I talk with all of them and love them dearly. I am married to my sweetheart Hollie going on 15 years. She puts up with a lot. Can I say anymore? I currently work from home at Genesys and I sell software. I have a ton of freedom and the upside to do well is very motivating. For 12 years commuted 35 miles to work each day and would work from 7:30 am and not get home until 6:30 pm. My current commute is walking to the basement....and am able to focus on helping my family, spend my time more wisely when it comes to my work and with the extra sleep my triathlon life is getting better and better every day. Sleep is a good thing. I am very thankful for the professional life I have and how it enables me to support the family and spend time teaching & helping my young men. I truly am blessed. I get to work from home, see my family more and train at normal hours now. Life truly is good.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon for simple reasons. When I follow the gospel principals, they make me happy. When I read the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and D&C I feel guidance and peace within. When I baptized my two older boys I knew in my heart it was right. I knew if they follow the gospel path the will always be able to find peace no matter what life throws at them. I served a mission from 1997 to 1999 in Colombia. 17 years has passed and when I think about the hard work, the love of the people and the message of Christ we were spreading my faith is always strengthened. I think about my Colombian people and experiences every single day. My sons love God and when I get to teach them something, it strengthens me. The structure the Gospel of Jesus Christ gives me and my family keeps us on track. I am lucky to have Jesus and a Heavenly Father that love and care for me and my family. I feel it while I spend time with them. I feel it when I am working. I feel it when I ride my bike. I feel it when I am running. I feel it when I get to share my testimony with others and hope that I can help others see how wonderful life can be with God's help through this great Gospel. Ever since I gained my testimony I have never wanted to leave the Church. I have had doubts like others but it is always snuffed out by the joy I know the Gospel has brought me and those around me. I know God is my Father, Jesus is the Christ and his church is on the earth.

How I live my faith

Currently I am serving in the Young Men's presidency as the first councilor. I have been able to see young men grow from the deacon age to leave on their missions. We have weekly activities where we work on scouting merit badges, camp, play basketball, flag football, running, swimming, career explorations and the list goes on and on. I feel very blessed to be associated with the young men. They are so faithful and true to our standards and values. They love the lord and want to be used for good things. Sometimes when I just don't want to go to the Wednesday night activities I think of them and how they rarely question and this helps me get up and serve. It should be me inspiring them but I feel it is in reverse. One day I when I grow up I will be as good as them! My family and 3 boys really make the biggest impact on my faith these days. I bring my two oldest boys with me each week to Young Men's activities and see their faith grow little by little. Xander is 12 and is fitting in nicely to the group. He passes the sacrament each week and Gabe is watching him... learning from him and is anxious to get that opportunity. I have already taken Xander to the temple to do baptisms for the dead and found it very faith building. Hollie and I have been married for the past 14 years. We have had our ups and downs like any couple I am sure but we love each other more and more each year. When I think about her there is no doubt she was sent to be these boys mom. They love her and look up to her in all that she does. I am lucky to be Mr. Hollie Sandberg. HA! Last of all I use the sport of Triathlon to build my faith. It is a release for me to ride, run and swim my guts out. My boys run with me or ride alongside me on their bikes as I run. I completed the Ironman in Arizona and every long run I did my boys, the neighbor kids and their cousins rode alongside me to motivate me and be a part of it. I will never forget the love they showed me to help me reach my goals and dreams.
