Cameron Jordan is a 3x All-Pro defensive end with the New Orleans Saints known for his explosiveness and physicality on the gridiron and his unrelenting commitment to the community.

Jordan has been a cornerstone both on and off the field for the Saints since being selected by New Orleans with the 24th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft out of the University of California.

On the field, he’s been voted as a team captain for multiple seasons and has posted 639 tackles (424 solo), 115.5 sacks (in club record books), two interceptions, 58 passes defensed, 15 forced fumbles and 10 fumble recoveries through the 2022 season. Jordan was voted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame selectors 2010’s All-Decade team.

Off the field, he has been respected both regionally and nationally for his community service, which is centered on education, physical fitness and social justice causes. His service earned him two nominations for the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award in 2017 and 2021. For more than a decade, Jordan has participated in community efforts every week ranging from mentoring at local schools and organizations; serving as an ambassador for the Saints Kids Club; hosting countless shopping sprees for students, families in need and victims of domestic violence; and providing backpacks, bikes and toys to kids in the community.

In 2020, Jordan founded the God Iz Love Foundation with his wife, Nikki. The foundation began an innovative program called “Cam Jordan’s Dreambuilders Fund,” which provides underserved children with items and experiences such as sports equipment, musical instruments, tuition for camps, and even prom dresses and senior pictures. Additionally, Jordan led a campaign to raise funds for United Way’s relief efforts following Hurricane Laura in Southwest Louisiana. He also donated laptops to student participants of Pathways, a year-round workforce readiness program for system involved youth provided by the New Orleans Mayor’s Office of Youth & Families.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Jordan went even further when he and his foundation partnered with local restaurants to feed first responders. Additionally, he teamed up with United Healthcare to donate $30,000 to make sure that families affected by COVID-19 in New Orleans had access to infant formula and feminine hygiene supplies. Jordan has taken on a leadership role with social justice initiatives by advocating for an increase in voter turnout and registration, and he has committed himself to improving the relationship between police and communities of color.

In 2020, Jordan focused his community efforts on a groundbreaking partnership with local law enforcement and a local non-profit, Crescent City Corps. He donated $120,000 to fund the expansion of the program into its second class and committed to educating 80 New Orleans Police Department officers to bridge the gap between the community and the police.

To continue to bring attention to this important initiative, Jordan served as an executive producer of a four-part docuseries that was nationally televised on the NFL Network, chronicling the Crescent City Corps training process, its results, and Jordan’s engagement.

When Hurricane Ida hit the Gulf Coast in 2021, Jordan immediately stepped up to pledge a $40,000 donation to Second Harvest Food Bank that helped produce 10,000 meals, a $50,000 donation to the United Way of Southeastern Louisiana, and a $10,000 donation to Giving Hope. Jordan pledged a donation of $1,000 for every sack he or a teammate made that year to local nonprofits for Ida relief, including the Greater New Orleans Foundation. Jordan’s diversified activism extends far beyond the bounds of the Superdome, making him a hero both on and off the field to the city of New Orleans and beyond.
