DAVIS COUNTY ROOTS
Jordan Hess was born, raised, and currently lives in Utah’s 2nd District. He’s uniquely prepared to represent the District from north to south.
Growing up, Jordan lived in Davis County, the heart of the northern part of the District. He has deep roots in this area. His 6th great-grandfather, John W. Hess, helped settle Farmington. Jordan fell in love with America studying US History in Mrs. Welling’s 5th grade class at Reading Elementary in Centerville! With its proximity to Hill Air Force Base, Davis County is home to patriotism and an economy that supports our United States Military. Jordan shares a deep respect for our servicemen and women with so many good people in Davis County. And he looks forward to representing the people who have meant so much to him throughout his life.
In 2012 Jordan moved to Washington DC to work on Senator Mike Lee’s legislative team. He also worked as a policy adviser to Senators Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Tom Cotton, Marco Rubio and others. America’s conservative champions have been his tutors and mentors. Once he established his own conservative credentials, Jordan went to work for the highly-respected Heritage Foundation as their Director of Coalition Relations. In this capacity, he built consensus across the country around innovative, conservative policies. His work in DC advanced common-sense education policy like school choice, parental rights, combatting government control of healthcare, defending life, and helping people get off government welfare and back on their feet.
Jordan holds a Master’s Degree in legislative affairs from The George Washington University where he was a bold conservative voice at a very liberal institution. Defending conservative values has been a way of life for Jordan. He’s uniquely positioned to go to Congress with a deep understanding of policy, a commitment to conservative values, and a determination to identify and create real solutions to our nation’s problems.
At home in Utah's Dixie
Jordan now resides in the southern heart of Utah’s 2nd District, Washington County. As Vice President at the St George Area Chamber of Commerce, Jordan considered it an honor to serve the resilient people of southern Utah who have transformed the desert into a thriving community and economy. Jordan championed small business owners and fought overregulation that damaged their businesses. Relying on his experience in Congress, Jordan crafted and implemented the Chamber’s successful legislative strategy.
After recognizing Jordan’s talent, the leaders of Washington City recruited him to work for them. He’s now one of the city’s key strategists and continues to be deeply invested in the success of southern Utah communities. In 2022, Jordan received Southern Utah’s 30 in their Thirties Award for his passionate service to the community he now hopes to represent in Congress.
A LEader in
Jordan was in his second term as Vice Chairman of the Utah Republican Party when he decided to run for Congress. As a member of the Board of Directors of the Republican Women Lead PAC, he has personally recruited, trained, and raised money to help Republican women run for (and win!) public office. He also serves on the Board of Directors for the Washington Area Chamber of Commerce and he’s an active Rotarian. Jordan is committed to serving Utah.
