Who is Jordan Gross?
This is the exact question I asked my friends the one time I ever tried a pot brownie in Amsterdam, but that is a whole different story. Who I am looks more like this. “Jordan, your smile lights up a room.” “Jordan, you just brighten my day.” “Jordan, all my troubles go away when I talk to you.” These are just a few things said about me by none other than, my grandma! But, in all seriousness, I am a 23-year old common man.
More specifically though, I graduated from Northwestern University with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics, a minor in Business, and a certificate in Civic Engagement in 2016. A year later, I earned a Master of Science in Management Studies from Kellogg School of Management. Throughout these 5 years, I was co-founder and co-contributor for a food and fitness blog called Feast Mode; I was Founder of a food delivery service called Feed My Mates and a consumer product called MomdelS. I started an Alzheimer’s Awareness group They Forget, We Remember, which gave me opportunities
to serve as a Junior Board member for Northwestern’s Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer’s Disease Center as well as for The Youth Movement Against Alzheimer’s.
I’ve worked with various startups including Pak’d a healthy meal delivery kit for elementary/middle school lunches, Chowbus, a food delivery service delivering authentic Asian cuisine, and RXBAR, which was just acquired for $600 million by Kellogg’s. I was a top soccer goalie in New York State in High School, and competed on a team that was ranked 3rd in the country. I am also a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and a Management trainee with Hillstone Restaurant Group.
I currently live in New York City and am in the process of starting a non-profit mission called FedUp that provides at-risk millennials with the opportunity to learn cooking skills so that they can find jobs in the restaurant space.
