Born on December 24, 1990, Marcus James Jordan is a former college basketball player for the UCF Knights. He is the second oldest child of Michael Jordan, the legendary basketball player who has since retired.
Michael Jordan and his first wife Juanita Vanoy welcomed their son Marcus James Jordan on December 24, 1990. Two of his siblings are named Jeffrey and Jasmine, and he has two half-sisters named Ysabel and Victoria from Michael’s second marriage to six-time NBA champion Yvette Prieto. Marcus’ parents split up in 2017.
The son of Michael Jordan and Juanita Vanoy, Jordan was born on December 24, 1990. His older sibling is Jeffrey, and he also has a younger sister, Jasmine, and two younger half-sisters from his dad’s side named Ysabel and Victoria. Marcus’s childhood was spent in Highland Park, Illinois.
The Nevada Gaming Control Board looked into Jordan’s tweets from 2010 while he was a sophomore in college and underage, in which he claimed to have spent around $50,000 at Las Vegas nightclubs. Outside of an Omaha hotel in 2012, police arrested Jordan after he got into an altercation with two ladies while under the influence of alcohol. After being arrested for resisting arrest, obstructing justice, and disorderly conduct, he was eventually freed. Subsequently, Jordan pleaded no contest to disturbing the peace and paid a $250 fine and court fees.
In May 2016, Jordan created a luxury shoe boutique called the Trophy Room. The Disney World store, which was once located in the Disney Springs shopping district, has been shuttered for three years as the company has shifted its focus to internet sales.
At a young age, Jeffrey Jordan embarked on a career in professional sports. In 2007, while still a high school senior, he was selected to participate in the Jordan Brand Classic. Scholarships have been extended to Jeffrey from both Valparaiso University and Loyola University Chicago. Further, he was heavily pursued as a preferred walk-on by Davidson, Northwestern, Penn State, and the University of Illinois.
Like his brother, Jeffery plans to join the University of Illinois’s team as a preferred walk-on player. In addition, in 2007 he had already begun his studies at the university, majoring in psychology and supported financially by an academic scholarship. Later on, Jeffery decided to focus on school and his “life after basketball” by withdrawing from the University of Illinois basketball team.
The good news is that he has picked up where he left off in basketball and is now a member of the squad. Additionally, he was given permission to join his brother, Marcus, at the University of Central Florida. Jeffery departed the UCF squad in January 2012, citing “personal reasons.”

He told Complex years later, “one of the things they informed me on my visit is that I was going to be able to wear Jordans, and it wouldn’t be a problem.”
