Jordan Robert McKinnon was born on November 12, 1991, in Roseau, Minnesota, to Patti
(Hanson) McKinnon and Timothy McKinnon. Jordan was born with a rare disorder called
Pallister Killian Syndrome which made his life very challenging however, he proved to be strong,
resilient and touched many lives with his sweet ways and beautiful smile.
Jordan attended Warroad Public School’s Special Education Program where he enjoyed the
company of wonderful staff, therapists and friends. He lived at home with his family for many
years until his care required professional assistance at which time Jordan became a resident of
the Elkwood Group Home in Warroad.
While living at Elkwood, Jordan enjoyed many visits from his family members and the caring
and compassionate staff who always went above and beyond. He enjoyed music, walks in the
wind, SpongeBob and The Price is Right, as well as toys and books. His smiles and corresponding
giggles would light up a room and in doing so would change people’s lives.
Jordan went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, March 21, 2021 at the age of 29 years. He is
survived by his parents Patti (Hanson) McKinnon – Roseau; Timothy (Lori) McKinnon – Warroad;
sister Kala (Matt) McKinnon Gleason and niece, Johanna Joy – Andover; as well as his
Grandmother, Elouise McKinnon – Warroad – and many loving Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and
