Jordan was born in Kampala, Uganda on October 24, 2005. He immigrated to the United States with his father, and three sisters in March of 2018. They joined his mother, who immigrated in advance of the rest of the family in order to secure a job.

Jordan’s short, joyful life was filled with his love of family, school and church. Jordan, a bright student at Chelmsford High School, was very excited to be entering his Sophomore year in the fall. Before the Coronavirus struck, he worked part-time as a bagger at Market Basket supermarket in Chelmsford. He was a devoted member of All Saints’ Episcopal Church in Chelmsford, where he worshipped with his family. He served as an assistant Sunday school teacher, patiently setting a good example for younger children. He also served on the altar, as an acolyte, with his sister, Jordana. His faith in God was deep and abiding.

Jordan was generous and kind; always helping when he was asked and considerate of others. He enjoyed drawing and photography and playing video games. He had a quiet demeanor in public, but among friends and family we knew him as funny, engaging and sometimes stubborn. Though he had strong opinions, he was always so respectful and he cared for his family deeply. When his baby sister, Eliana, was in the Christmas Pageant as the Baby Jesus, he carefully carried her up and tended to her. On the day of her Baptism, he proudly stood with his sisters and prayed for her. He took so many photographs that day! He watched over all of his sisters with such love.

Jordan is survived by his mother, Rowena Nakyejjwe, his father, Fred
Ssenteza-Kajubi, and his three younger sisters – Jordana, 10, Emmanuela, 8, and Eliana, 6 months. He was a loving son and brother. In fact, one of the last things he did, was give his baby sister a bath on the morning of the day he passed away. He will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.

Visiting hours will be held on Tuesday, June 23 from 5-8pm at the Blake Chelmsford Funeral Home.
A private funeral service and interment will be held on Wednesday, June 24th. Donations in his memory can be made to the All Saints’ Episcopal Church, RE: Rector’s Discretionary Fund.  Checks can be mailed to 10 Billerica Road, Chelmsford, MA 01824 or donations online through Realm: https://

My deepest condolences to Jordan's family and friends, his untimely passing is a sadness all who knew him are feeling. Jordan joined my classroom in 7th grade when he arrived in the U.S. and was my student again in 8th grade. He was a quiet boy, observed others but when he got comfortable, had a great sense of humor and enjoyed being competitive. He was intelligent, kind and respectful. He will truly be missed, rest in peace, Jordan.

Jordan was in my HS church school class. He was always kind, sometimes witty but usually quiet. When he did speak up his deep understanding of his faith and love for God would always come through. Watching him care for his younger sisters was always so endearing and heartwarming. Jordan was a wonderful young man, taken far too soon. He will be dearly missed at All Saints' and I will miss him in class. May God's love give you peace, strength and comfort.

I am saddened to hear about Jordan’s passing. I knew him from McCarthy. He was always so kind and a true blessing. My prayer for you is that God’s peace and love comforts you through this difficult time. Matthew 11:28-30.
