Jordan Ely, Ashland School District's Business Services Director, was born and raised in Grants Pass, OR by parents that both serve in the Grants Pass School District. His passions for education and finance are borne out of an enculturation that included influences from family members in both education and private enterprise. He married his wife, Bonnie in 2010 and they have two children, Liam and Kinley. They are grateful for the myriad unique opportunities that will be afforded to their children as they grow up in this community.
Jordan joined the Ashland School District in July of 2016. Prior to his current role, he worked in corporate supply chain management in the great state of Alaska. Jordan hopes to utilize the skills and experience gained in that industry in order to steward resources in a way that maximizes educational benefit for all of our students. Jordan holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Studies with concentrations in Operations and Project Management.
