Jordan Daniel Baker, 31, of Mesa passed away suddenly on Thursday, January 13th, 2022. He was the beloved son of Mark and Cindy Baker, from Queen Creek and big brother to Evan, 29, and Emma, 25.

Jordan was born in Arlington Heights, Illinois and lived his childhood and early adult life in Cary IL and then Elgin IL. He moved to Arizona in 2015 with his family where he began his education and training to become a radiology tech.  Within the last few months, he also obtained his CT certification in Computed Tomography. He was employed at Mayo Clinic in Phoenix and took great joy in working within that hospital and CT department. He loved his work and felt as though this was his life passion and calling.

Jordan was a recovering Alcoholic, having obtained his sobriety on 11/1/11 at the age of 21. He remained faithful to his recovery and sobriety, being actively involved in AA meetings both in Illinois and Arizona. He felt most fulfilled when he was helping a fellow brother or sister with the steps and he did this countless times with people. His last meeting was the night before he passed.

Jordan had a close personal relationship with his Heavenly Father, and his Savior Jesus Christ. He fully accepted the grace gift of Salvation that is only given through Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. He attended Central Christian Church in Mesa and used God’s grace, love, peace, and mercy daily and maintained his sobriety one day at a time.

Jordan loved Hard Rock music and Marvel movies. He was a sports enthusiast and passionately followed NBA basketball and UFC fights. Fight nights at the Baker home were a routine date whenever they occurred.

Jordan was also a quiet, reflective man, who understood that the most important responsibility to a person on earth was to bring Glory to God and to reach out to his fellow men, both in faith and in recovery. He lived this daily and put aside as many earthly obstacles as possible to focus on his mission. His smile would light up a room and his humor and laugh were infectious to those who witnessed it. He was especially close with his family and our family gatherings were always appreciated and never taken for granted.

His family will have a private service for him on Tuesday, Jan 18th.

  12. Chris Villanueva says:

    I say this with a heavy heart….I got to know Jordan very well working along side him in Radiology. He was the hardest working man I know! I admired that about him, and made me respect him even more. I was one of his coworkers that talked about UFC with something we had in common. Every Friday he would bring in treats for the Radiology staff. I was always amazed on how many candy bars he could eat lol His presence will be missed in Radiology. Gone but will never be forgotten

  13. Charles Utecht says:

    My deepest sympathies to your family with the loss of Jordan. He was a very dedicated employee and delivered great care to all his patients. His work ethic and his dedication to the team were what stood out to me. Jordan was funny, empathetic, a good listener, and was a man who you could rely on. He will surely be missed here at Mayo Clinic by the radiology team.

  14. Clint Jokerst says:

    I deeply lament that I didn’t get a chance to know Jordan better, especially after reading these heart-warming and heart-wrenching condolences. Having lost many loved ones, often suddenly, in my relatively short life I know there is little that words can do to add or detract to the legacy Jordan leaves behind. Reflecting on his actions in life, and how those actions influenced, and continue to influence, those he loved and cared for must bring solace now that he is no longer with us here on earth. I gather from the actions I observed during my short time with Jordan that he was a good man and a hard worker who made a positive impact on the world and especially on his coworkers and his patients at Mayo Clinic Radiology. He will be dearly missed by those who knew him, what more can be said of a good human being? My deepest sympathy is yours and my family’s thoughts and prayers are with the Baker Family tonight.

  15. Donna Winters and Family says:

    Mark, Cindy and Family, I am so sorry to hear of Jordan’s passing. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you at this difficult time. I will be thinking of you all. Love and prayers

  16. Darci Rossiter says:

    I did not know Jordan closely, but as a co-worker. I also did not know he was a Christian, but that makes every bit of sense to me now as I think of his sunny attitude. Jordan was ALWAYS smiling! He always greeted me in the hallway, even when I didn’t see him first. He had such a great demeanor and such patience and respect in all aspects of his job. His spirit will definitely be missed around Mayo. My heart is breaking for his family and all who grieve his passing and all are in my prayers. Rest in peace Jordan, you are free.

  17. Patricia Richards says:

    He made work life and all the choas a lot more enjoyable. Full of life and energy while at work. He will be missed a lot by his Mayo team.

  18. jeanne leifheit says:

    I am so very sorry for your loss. To lose a child is never easy. Even though he was an adult, he is always your child. May God be with you holding you close as you grieve through this difficult time. Sending you much love and Prayers!

  19. Alaskan Princess says:

    I did not knw your son … I just came across his obituary. I am so sorry for your loss .. so sad to lose such a productive young person.

  20. Mark Baker says:

    This was our Jobie! A video tribute! ❤️🙏
