Jordan Ells

Ells, John “Jordan” –


It is with broken hearts that the family of Jordan Ells announce his unexpected passing on June 8, 2022, at his home. Born on March 25, 1987, in Saint John, he was a son of Tom and Heather (Ells) Dorey.


Jordan had a big heart and would give you the shirt off his back. He loved joking around and making people laugh. He had a soft side to him as well. He enjoyed setting an ambiance of peacefulness by having Christmas lights strung throughout his home all through the year with Scentsy warmers to complete the atmosphere! Most of all Jordan loved his family. His children were his pride and joy. He was a man of faith and, when his children were younger, always took time to say bedtime prayers with them. He will be greatly missed by his family and many friends.


Jordan will be lovingly remembered by his parents, Heather, and Tom; sons, Brandon Garnett and Lucas Purdy both of Saint John; daughter Aaliyah Garnett of Saint John; brothers, Ben Dorey (Katelyn Bourgoin), Derrick Tyler, Terrance Moses and Darnell Moses all of Saint John; sisters, Hannah Milljour (Séan) of Oromocto and Kelly Moses of Saint John, girlfriend, Krista Osborne;  as well as many cousins, aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews.


Jordan was predeceased by his father, Derrick Moses; his paternal grandmother and maternal grandparents.
