Remembering Portland’s Charles Jordan
"You were either his friend, or you simply hadn’t met him yet."
—Larry Selzer, President and CEO
The Conservation Fund lost one of its most prominent leaders with the passing of Charles Jordan on April 4, 2014. Mr. Jordan served as the Chairman of The Conservation Fund’s board, and as a Director for 20 years.
Among his many accomplishments was his leadership of Portland, Oregon’s Park and Recreation Bureau, following his service as a City Commissioner. He was renowned for his leadership as the architect of the city’s nationally acclaimed parks system.
And in appreciation:
All of us at the Fund extend our sympathy and gratitude to his wife, Esther, and to his children and grandchildren.
Larry Selzer, President and CEO of The Conservation Fund, and Pat Noonan, Chairman Emeritus, remember Charles Jordan:
