Born in 1988, Jeffrey M. Jordan witnessed the peak of the Chicago Bulls legend. During that time, there wasn’t a more popular star in all sports. As a result, Jeffrey too had a natural inclination toward the sport.

But his career did not pan out ideally. While he did get college scholarships, eventually choosing Loyola Academy in Illinois, his career did not lift off. He did not give up, though. Instead, he found a different avenue to pursue.

Eventually, he found his way over to Nike, where he worked as an intern as recently as 2009. However, in 2021, is when his business career truly took off. Now 35, Jeffrey can comfortably enjoy life. In a post celebrating his 35th, he had a bunch of gratitude and exercise emojis.

Brother Marcus had to pay homage to his elder brother as well. With a short but simple, “That dude”, and a salute, the 32-year-old gave a brotherly tribute to the eldest Jordan son. And that dude Jeffrey certainly is.

His cycle of reinvention gives credence to that fact. His first major move came in 2021 with Heir Inc. The platform was a bridge between athletes and fans and has been a joint venture between the two brothers. While that continued to grow, he didn’t grow complacent. Instead, his focus was on another idea.

Teaming up with Nike, he came up with Aktiiv. A unique foray, Aktiiv is a clothing brand for women. However, what separates it from others is its plant-based, carbon-neutral, and biodegradable activewear. Primarily, the materials in their product are eucalyptus, seaweed, and microalgae.

Worth $24 million now, Jeffrey has found a steady way to contribute for himself and his wife Radina Aneva, whom he married in 2019. Marcus and beau Larsa Pippen could soon be joining the couple in marital bliss.

As he continues to grow his business portfolio, it seems that he did borrow that talent from the former owner of the Charlotte Hornets, Michael Jordan.

My earliest memories of a connection to basketball was through its popularity in my school. Eventually, that gave way to a genuine passion for the sport and the rest, is history. Whether it be gameplay, the tactics, the narratives, or the sheer art on display, the game speaks to me in a way few other things can.
