He is the child of Walter and Beverley Peterson and he also has two siblings. His father worked as a librarian at the Fairview campus of Grande Prairie Regional College whereas his mother worked as a school teacher.

Personal Life

In 1989, Jordan tied the knot with Tammy Roberts 1989 and the pair welcomed their first child together, a daughter, Mikhaila, and they also have a son, Julian.

Beginning in 2000, he started to collect Soviet-era paintings that are displayed in his house as a reminder of the relationship between totalitarian propaganda and art, and as instances of how optimistic arrays can be totalitarian oppression and horror.

He became an honorary member of the extended family of Charles Joseph, a Kwakwakaʼwakw artist, and was provided with the name Alestalagie back in 2016.

Jordan had an extreme autoimmune reaction to food in 2016 and was prescribed clonazepam, a benzodiazepine. Later, in order to control his severe depression and the impacts of an autoimmune disorder along with psoriasis and uveitis, he followed a strict diet including just meat and some vegetables advised by his daughter who is a “nutrition ‘influencer’ with no medical credentials”.

In the middle of 2018, he completely cut down on eating vegetables and went on eating just beef, salt, and water.

His prescribed dosage of clonazepam was raised in April 2019 to help him in coping up with anxiety which was because of his wife’s cancer treatment. Later, after a few months, he tried to reduce his intake or avoid the drug consumption entirely which led him to experience “horrific” benzodiazepine withdrawal syndrome.

As per his daughter, the family wasn’t able to find doctors in North America who were ready to adapt their diagnosis preference, and thus, in January 2020, Jordan, his daughter, and her husband headed off to Moscow, Russia, for diagnosis where doctors diagnosed Jordan with pneumonia in both lungs after arrival, and he was put into a medically induced coma for 8 days.
