Jordan Aaberg

September 28, 1990 - September 08, 2020


Jordan Tyler Aaberg, age 29, of Fargo, ND passed away unexpectedly on September 8, 2020. He was born September 28, 1990 to Janice Aaberg and Rodney Jensen, in Fergus Falls, MN.
Jordan grew up in rural Rothsay, MN attending Rothsay High School until his graduation in 2009.

Jordan attended North Dakota State University (NDSU) in Fargo majoring in Management Information Systems with minors in Business and Computer Science. He played for the Bison basketball team from 2009-2014. The highlight of Jordan’s basketball career was playing in the NCAA March Madness Tournament in Spokane. He treasured his Bison family friendships with teammates, coaches, and fans. After his time at NDSU, Jordan continued his passion for basketball by playing in city leagues and coaching the West Fargo Mustangs youth team.
Jordan was a part of the Information Technology (IT) community in Fargo. First working at Border States Electric and most recently Nexus Innovations, a job he thoroughly enjoyed. He loved the challenge of the profession and used his analytical mind to help others along the way.

Jordan married Courtney Brenden on September 2, 2017 at Hope Lutheran Church in Fargo. They were blessed with a daughter, Delia, born in 2019. Family life was important to Jordan and being a father and husband were the greatest joys of his life.

Jordan will be remembered as a gentle giant with a competitive spirit. Everyone he encountered loved his smile and sense of humor. He was a man of faith, family, and friendships. Many people looked to Jordan as a leader both literally and figuratively. He never spoke harshly of others and had a way of making everyone feel important. His legacy will live on through his family and friends. What an example for us all.

Jordan is survived by his wife, Courtney, and daughter, Delia, Fargo, ND; mother, Janice Aaberg, Rothsay, MN; father, Rodney Jensen (Jodi Beck), Fergus Falls, MN; brother Dexter Aaberg, Rothsay, MN. Grandfather, Obert Aaberg, Rothsay, MN; uncles: Paul Aaberg, John Aaberg, Rothsay, MN and Mark Aaberg (Karen Backes), St. Cloud, MN; Ron (Diane) Jensen, Pelican Rapids, MN, and Rick (Jenny) Jensen, West Fargo, ND, aunt Colleen Jensen, Billings, MT. Father-in-law, Lynn (Faye) Brenden, Rothsay, MN; sister-in-law, Hailey Brenden, Nepal; brother-in-law, Noah (Caryn) Brenden, Breckenridge, MN.

    I only ever met Jordan for the briefest of moments when Courtney and I worked at West Acres Mall.

    I met Jordan as a freshman at NDSU and a lot of time had passed in between conversations. Last fall I was home for an NDSU football game and I ran into Jordan. Long story short I ran into him before the game and the next thing I knew, we were chatting for 30 minutes and it was like a day hadn’t passed. The world needs more Jordan Aabergs and I consider myself lucky to call him a friend.

  65. Steve Hartman says:

    Courtney, Delia, Janice, Dexter, Rod and all who knew Jordan,

    My condolences and deepest sympathies. Jordan was an amazing young man. His legacy will live on forever. His kindness, heart, compassion, work ethic, perseverance shined throughout his life. I was privileged to coach him and feel as though I learned more from him than he did from myself. His success on the court, however, will always be outshined by his kindness off it. My greatest coaching memories were from his senior season. When his star was rising as a player his personality and selflessness never changed. His dedication to his family, school, and friends was most important. That will be his legacy.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  66. Pam and Steve Reed says:

  74. Lisa Kugler says:

    Janice and Rodney,
    When I heard of the death of Jordon a piece of my heart broke for the two of you. I can’t imagine the pain you are going through~no parent should have to bury a child. I have no doubt you are dealing with the “why’s”, “if only” “it just can’t be true” and the list goes on and on.I wish I had magical words that would take your pain away, but sadly I don’t. Please know that you are in my thoughts and I pray that God will give you the strength you need to get through the loss of Jordan until you meet again where you will never have to say good~bye again!
