Ben Jordan
Ben Jordan, 16 years of age and a student at Belton-Honea Path High School, boy scout and football player died Thursday night, Sept. 6th,  after year-long battle with blood clots.

Ben was known as "Gentle Ben" by his friends not only because of his big size but because of his manner. The BHP Bear Football team and coaches considered Ben not only a team player but a very good friend.  He had great spirit and constitution.

About 14 months ago, Jordan began feeling a shortness of breath at football camp. BHP Head Coach Blackston said something happened in Jordan's body.   Ben was hospitalized and treated for blood clots in his lungs.  Ben came back strong and earned the starting right guard position this summer, but his determination wasn't a cure for the condition that would eventually claim his life.

Ben was hospitalized at Greenville Hospital and was admitted to intensive care where he stayed until just days before his death.  On Thursday, he began suffering shortness of breath while at the hospital, collapsed and went to be with the Lord.

Eagle Scout Ben Jordan was loved and will be missed not only by his football Bear teammates and coaches but by his fellow scouts and leaders. Ben was a Honea Path Boy Scout in Troop 5.  Ben's brother Jacob is also a very active in Boy Scout in Troop 5. He had one of the kindest spirits of any young person. He loved and was loved by all.  He was a Christian and enjoyed sharing with others the love of  Jesus Christ.  His father, Ken Jordan, is Scout Master of Honea Path Troop 5. Ben attended all scouting events possible when he didn't have a commitment with the Bears. Ben always didn't let Jacob know it, but he always looked after him just making sure he was doing what he was suppose to be doing and was OK.  That's was "Gentle Ben's" way of brotherly love. Ben was blessed to have Ken and Michelle as parents. They expected the best possible of him and only wanted God's love to be shown though his life., which it was.

We will miss him and always will keep him in our hearts.    Honea Path Boy Scout Troop 5
