CLEMSON, S.C. – IPTAY and Clemson Athletics have announced the Jordan Family as an Athletic Cornerstone Partner following their incredible commitment to support Clemson student-athletes with a gift of $2.5 million. The contribution from Robert “Bob” and Patricia “Pat” Jordan will be commemorated with a ribbon cutting at the new practice fields on Friday, November 10 prior to their in-game recognition on Saturday, November 11 as Clemson Football takes on Georgia Tech. The practice fields at the facility will be formally known as the Jordan Family Practice Fields.
The Allen N. Reeves Football Complex serves as one of the largest and most advanced training centers in the country, and the facility has become a 178,000-square-foot sanctuary for its athletes. Designed to support the day-to-day activities of the players, coaches, and staff, the complex was created to further elevate the Clemson Football program in all facets of the operation from the training and development of current student-athletes to recruitment and beyond.
Currently residing in Greenville, S.C., Bob and Pat serve as Order of the Oak Ambassadors for the Clemson University Foundation. Order of the Oak Ambassadors are a group of Clemson’s most trusted supporters and advocates created to provide wisdom, guidance, and momentum to meet the changes and challenges of the future while fulfilling the university’s land-grant mission.
Bob’s pursuit of a career in engineering led him to work for companies like Daniel Construction, Fluor Daniel, and Rust Engineering & Construction prior to being recruited to serve as Chief of Staff and Chief Operating Officer for Chicago Bridge & Iron. Following his success throughout his engineering career, Bob and Pat purchased the Tennessee Electric Company in 2007, which was renamed in 2010 to TEC Industrial Maintenance & Construction and purchased in 2020 by Comfort Systems USA, Inc. The Jordans also own Caroland Farms, a full-blood Wagyu beef cattle farm located in Landrum, S.C. and in Roaring River, N.C.
Bob and Pat have two sons, Aaron and Eric. Aaron Jordan, alongside his wife, Jennie, reside in Greenville with their two children, Taylor and Jenna. He currently serves as Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of TEC Industrial Maintenance & Construction. Eric Jordan graduated from Clemson in 1998 and currently serves as Executive Director, Commercial and Government Accounts for Supernus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Eric and his wife, Tressa, also a graduate of Clemson, reside in Greenville with their two children, Hunter and Anne Asbury.
Through their leadership and philanthropic generosity, Bob and Pat Jordan now serve as champions for the mission and vision of Clemson University. Their most recent support toward IPTAY and Clemson Athletics will serve to further cement their legacy of generosity toward the Clemson community and will continue fostering the culture of maintaining the highest possible standard for the Clemson student-athlete experience.
