Obituary: Jordan David Lauger
Jordan David Lauger, age 33, of McCook, Neb., died on Jan. 7, near Wellfleet, Neb.
Jordan was born on Dec. 1, 1989, in Jackson, Wyo., to parents Matthew E. and Gail E. (Irwin) Lauger. He lived in his hometown of Pinedale, Wyo., and graduated from Penn Foster in 2007. He relocated to McCook in 2009, after having met his future bride while volunteering in the door-to-door ministry. Jordan was united in marriage to Amber Marie Meissner on June 2, 2012, in McCook, and to this union two children, Evelyn Sage and Delilah May, were born.
Jordan was employed at the Pepsi Distribution Center until it closed in 2019. He then worked as a trucker for JP Logistics and most recently was promoted to warehouse manager at Van Diest Supply in McCook.
He was a lifelong Jehovah’s Witness and a devoted, loving father and husband who loved spending time with his family. Jordan had his own podcast, The Only Clash Podcast, and enjoyed listening to other podcasts as well as playing video games. Jordan loved the outdoors, Frolfing, playing softball, and any snow sport, especially snowmobiling. He was mild mannered, made people laugh and was a best friend to anyone who was fortunate enough to be his acquaintance.
Jordan was preceded in death by his paternal grandfathers, Mike Lauger and Owen Irwin, both from Pinedale, Wyo.
