The actor was best known for his role in Will & Grace.
A representative for Jordan said that the world is a lot darker without her.
He provided an emotional sanctuary to the nation at one of its most difficult times, and was a mega talent and joy to work with. He made up for his small stature by being a son, brother, artist, comedian, partner, and human being. The only solace one can have is knowing that he has left the world at the top of his career and personal life.
Jordan crashed his car into the side of a building on Cahuenga Boulevard in Hollywood on Monday. He may have had a medical emergency.
The veteran actor rose to television fame in the late 1980s and early 1990s with roles in sitcoms such as Will & Grace. Jordan has appeared in a number of shows in the last few years.
Jordan was nominated for an award for his performance in Will & Grace.
He was raised in a Southern Baptist family. Jordan told Philadelphia Magazine that he had a hard time growing up in Southern Baptist. He said he wasbaptized 14 times. The preacher would tell sinners to come forward. I would say, "I was out in the woods with that boy, I better go forward"
After graduating from college, Jordan moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in show business. He was involved with drugs and alcohol by the time he was in his 20's.
Jordan said it was easier to be gay when he was loaded. I used to be a bar drinker. I began to get drunks. I can't believe it. I got three in a row. They ordered me to spend 120 days in jail.
At the age of 42, Jordan sobered up. He said that he ended up in the pokey. Try 27 days in the LA men's county jail if you want to get sober. That will make you feel better.
He became involved in the AIDS Project Los Angeles as well as a food delivery person for Project Angel Food during the AIDS crisis.
During the Pandemic, Jordan became a social media sensation due to the funny daily videos he would post of himself. He asked, "How y'all doin'?" and some of the videos had stories about his upbringing.
