Class of 1972
Jonathan Jordan, class of 1972 and one of the great athletes in Berry history, passed away
suddenly of an apparent heart attack while out for a run with his son in September, 2018. Jonathan
was one of four brothers and a sister who attended the academy (Jonathan ‘72, Paul ‘73, Peter
Marshall ‘75, Jamie ’76 and Jodi ’81) and their mother was the proctor in Friendship Hall for many
years. All four brothers wore basketball uniform number 44 and it is believed to be the only Berry
jersey that was ever retired.
Jonathan was a successful attorney in San Diego and had a horse farm which he loved. He was
inducted into the Berry Sports Hall of Fame in October, 2017.
