Paulette Jordan Bio: Family, Education, Early Life

Born on 7th December 1979, Paulette Jordan is an American politician who is a candidate for the Democratic nomination for Governor of Idaho in the 2018 election. She was born to a farming and ranching family in northern Idaho to father Michael Jordan and her mother. Paulette hasn’t revealed much information about her parents but has gushed about her mother saying she is the source of inspiration to her.

My mother brings the greatest lesson and inspiration of all through her love, support, and prayer. She walks this life with beautiful humility, having overcome many challenges. She has proven to me the sky has no limits and that anything can be achieved if we truly believe with love and passion in our heart to overcome any fear.

Her grandparents and great-grandparents are all great leaders. Her grandfathers are Chief Kamiakin of the Palus, and Chief Moses of the Columbia and her grandmothers are Lucy Covington, Emily Friedlander-Peone, and Justine Vincent. Jordan’s grandmothers were strong leaders, protectors, and caregivers of strength in women. Belonging from such a great family, her ancestors have been a potent source of guidance and wisdom for me. Her family grows bluegrass and timothy hay.
