08 March 2019
Vale Ron Jordan OAM - Swimming NSW Life Member

It is with great sadness that Swimming NSW advises the passing of Life Member Ronald Jordan OAM.

Ron was involved in the sport of swimming for well over 50 years and was up until recently working at swim meets providing timing equipment to various Club and School meets.

He was President of Swimming NSW from 1991 to 2001, served as Chair of the Swimming NSW Education and Competitions Committees for many years and was also involved in the Technical and Learn to Swim Committees. In 1998, Ron was awarded Life Membership of Swimming NSW for his outstanding service to Swimming in the State.

A current member of the Peakhurst Swim Club, Ron served as Patron of the Club, had been the Technical Adviser to Masters Swimming New South Wales since 2002 and was awarded the Australian Sports Medal in 2000.

Ron was also the New South Wales Team Organiser for the Pacific School Games in 1982, 1984, 1988, 1992, 1996 and 2000.

His contribution to the sport would be rivalled by very few and he will be sorely missed.

All are welcome to attend Ron's funeral which will be held:

Friday 15th March 2019
Woronora Crematorium
South Chapel

Ron's funeral will be followed by lunch at the Coffee Shop on site.
