Jordan Preston

One of Jordan’s best memories about his time enrolled in Firestone Park’s YMCA Summer Camp involved an inspirational counselor named Mr. Michael.  Jordan recalls this man’s leadership some 15 years later as he is now a Summer Camp leader and after-care Lead Teacher.  “He wasn’t just watching us, he was teaching us, having fun, and building relationships with us.”  Jordan is definitely doing the same.  A graduate of The Ohio State University, Jordan came to work at that very same Y to further his goals to one day be a counselor for at-risk youth.

“I look at my job as really coming full circle,” said Jordan who says he is 100% committed to work  every day to be a positive role model and mentor to kids who grew up in the community with the same challenges that he did.

 “I want to make a difference in my community.” - Jordan Preston
