Jordan L. Tucker, age 18 years and 5 days, of Cloquet, passed away unexpectedly in his sleep early Saturday, November 15, 2008. He was born November 10, 1990 in Duluth. Jordan attended Churchill Elementary School, Cloquet Middle School, and would have graduated next spring from Esko High School. He was an honor student with a passion for fishing and hunting especially around Lake Vermilion where he had many “secret” walleye spots. Jordan loved soccer and was named all-conferences goalie and played in the all star game this fall. He also was an excellent youth soccer referee. Jordan is dearly loved and greatly missed by his mother and step-father, Barbara and Mike Krzenski; father and step-mother, Jeff and Kathi Tucker; sisters Amanda and Breanna Tucker; grandparents, Bob and Danielle Stevens, Karen Tucker, Ron and Jean Tucker;great-grandparents, Mary and Stanley Hill; uncles Brad (Toni) Stevens, Rick (Maureen) Tucker, and aunt Julie (Lowell) Fermenich; step-sister, Amber (Ben) Ward; step-brothers, Jake (Kristy) Krzenski and Jesse Krzenski; numerous cousins; and a multitude of very good friends. Jordan had a great sense of humor, and a deep baritone voice that rumbled when he spoke. He was a tough man, a good friend, a great son, and the best brother. He will always be remembered, never forgotten, and his memories will be honored as well as treasured. In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to a memorial fund in Jordan’s name at U.S. Bank.
