Karen Christensen

Karen Christensen, our beloved sister passed away peacefully on May 24, after a courageous lifetime of health complications. Despite all of this she earned multiple bachelor’s degrees and a master’s from DePaul University. She inspired us all with her faith, love, support, and kindness. She loved her family dearly. She was a great Santa’s helper. Her artistic talents and creativity were shared with every card, note and invitation. We will so miss receiving them. She reminded us of the importance of education and continuous reading. We thank her for the yearly gift of Reader’s Digest continuing our father’s tradition. She cherished her beautiful garden that she knew was a gift from God with all who saw it. She is survived by her sister Diane (Dennis) Schultz and Donna (Scott) Sutcliffe, the late James (Sandy) Christensen, Eileen (the late Joseph) Yankee and the Deane/Devitt families.

Jordan, Jack Jordan, Elizabeth Mattas, Liam Jordan, Caroline Jordan, Martin Jordan, Jr., Jackson Mattas and Fallon Lowes; cherished  friend, nephew and cousin to many.


David grew up on the West Side of Chicago, the 7th of 10 children who all attended St. Angela School.  David went on to St. Patrick High School and then Loyola University of Chicago where he earned degrees in English and Communications and was an editor on the school’s newspaper, The Phoenix. David then earned a masters degree in journalism from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism. He worked as a reporter and editor for Lerner News Publications.


David was handsome, funny, gentle and had a brilliant mind. He was witty, with an oddball, offbeat sense of humor but was never mean spirited. He was a terrific writer and read everything. 

He loved his daughter, Kima, with his whole heart. He loved his friends and his crazy, loud, big, fun family, including his Swiss cousins, having had the opportunity to make two trips to Switzerland along with other travels across Europe.


He was an inspiration to many, fighting through 32 years of various serious health problems and physical limitations that started with a brain tumor at age 31. David worked tirelessly and bravely to get through each day. He had help from many angels, in his last 5 years on earth. 

He will be greatly missed by those who loved him.

Donations in memory of David Jordan may be made to: Jack and Marty Jordan Fund supporting athletics at St. Angela School.
