Jordan, born and raised in Mickleton, was involved in team sports.  He also helped his grandfather on his farm during his early years which fostered his interest in the land, gardening, and the environment.  Later he was a resident of Swedesboro where he coached baseball and served as president of Swedesboro Parks & Recreation.

After graduating from Kingsway Regional High School in the Class of 1971, Jordan immediately secured a job at Mobil Oil Refinery in Paulsboro where he remained until his retirement in 2009.

After his marriage in 1985, Jordan and his wife Maria moved out of the area.  After retirement, they decided to return to their roots in the Kingsway sending district and moved into Four Seasons @ Weatherby in Woolwich in 2013.  Soon thereafter, Jordan started attending the bi-monthly meetings of the Woolwich Township Committee, became involved with the Swedesboro& Woolwich Community Garden, and served on the Swedesboro/Woolwich Environmental Commission before deciding to get more involved by running for a seat on the Committee.  He eagerly started his three-year term as Committeeman Schlump in January 2016. 

Jordan is the proud father of Jordan Jr. and daughters Jennifer and Jamie and has ten grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

My family has lived in Woolwich Township for generations.  I was fortunate to have been raised in this community and after marrying my wife, she and I chose to raise our three sons here because of our rich family history and strong community ties.  

My father, Chief Russell Marino, retired after 38 years in law enforcement, having served the residents of Woolwich Township as their Chief of Police for 18 years. Following in my father’s footsteps, I chose public service and have proudly served the residents of Paulsboro as their Chief of Police for the past 3 years.  As an accomplished police officer, I have been in law enforcement for 30 years, a decade of which was spent with the Swedesboro Police Department.  Prior to my father’s retirement, we had the distinct honor of becoming the first father/son chiefs of police to serve at the same time in New Jersey.  

 I am a proven leader and possess expert training and education. I am a proud graduate of the FBI National Academy where less than 1% of all law enforcement personnel are chosen to attend this globally-recognized program.  I’m also a graduate of the New Jersey State Chiefs of Police West Point Command and Leadership Program and received the New Jersey State Chiefs of Police ACE Certification, Accredited Chiefs Executive.  In addition, I also completed the Certified Public Manager Program provided by Fairleigh Dickinson University and was awarded the distinction of C.P.M. 

I actively volunteered in Woolwich Township for many years serving as an assistant coach for the Swedesboro/Woolwich Little League Baseball program, AAU Travel Baseball and as a head coach for the youth flag football program.  

I believe my upbringing, proven leadership skills and experience has provided me with tools to help provide exceptional service to you, the residents of Woolwich Township and make it the best place to live and to do business.
