Live on Everest

Team Jordan Summits Mt. Everest

The team just called in and confirmed that they are standing on top of Mt. Everest - the highest peak in the world.  Their dreams have now come true.  Everyone sounded unbelievably happy.  They also thanked everyone who supported them and encouraged them throughout their journey. 

I’m sure we’ll hear more from them soon!

    Félicitations, Jordan,

    C’est un grand exploit, et je suis heureux que tu y soit parvenus. Je suis sur que tu n’en ai que à tes débuts d’exploit. Un seul conseil, ne dépasse jamais (hors cas de survie) les 80% de tes capacités. Les engagements hors de ces règles de sécurités finissent parfois mal.
    Je n’oublie pas de féliciter tes parents qui ont su te faire confiance et t’accompagner.

    Bien amicalement

    Congratulations Jordan. They said you were to young to handle it. You proved them wrong. We are all proud of you. My 13 year old is doing a 50 mile bike ride to raise money for Livestrong. Not quite the same league, but if all kids your age were more focused on health and athletic accomplishments, the world would be a better place.

    Going to make a Livestrong contribution in your name.

    Congratulations from North Carolina (USA)! What an incredible & inspiring feat! Praying safety for Team Jordan on their descent…

  • Nikki B

    Fantastic news – well done all of you! My daughters aged 5 & 8 have been following your progress from England and think Jordan is even cooler than the Jonas brothers :0)

  • Meg

    CONGRATULATIONS! That’s fabulous! Come down safely!

  • Jenny R

    Wow! Congratulations Jordan and your wonderfully supportive family and friends. What a great feat you have accomplished! You should be so very proud of yourselves. Have a safe trip back down -thoughts and best wishes from Western Australia!

  • Cassy and Rich Benson

    Jordan: Congratulations!!! During the Amgen bike race that finished in Big Bear Friday, we heard the call from your mom saying you had a window of opportunity to summit and were going for it. Lots of nerves, prayers, and excitement for you all last night. Well done!!! We’ll be glad to welcome you back home. Lots of love!

    Jordan, Paul and Karen,
    Congrats for accomplishing this righteous and spectacular feat.
    We are lovingly proud of you Jordan!! We were awakened by family in Arizona today to hear the great news and saw you on HLN.
    Can’t wait to see more pictures and to hear more about the TOP of Mount Everest.
    Have a safe journey back home xo (Gramma) Rose and (aunt) Diane

  • Teri Smith

    Well, well, very well done! Congratulations to all three of you and Leigh Anne, too… great team both on the mountain and at home! Loves and hugs to you all!!! xoxo

  • Bakhos Family

    I was just thinking what a neat coincidence it is that you’re at the top of Mt. Everest during the same weekend that the Jewish people celebrate the giving of the torah to Moses on Mount Sinai. Your accomplishment is deeply inspiring for all of us in Big Bear. We look forward to hearing all about your trip when you return. Godspeed, from the Bakhos family.

    Congratulation depuis la Suisse. Nous t’avons vu sur la BBC TV.
    Et voici, nous avons recu les nouvelles de Gloria et Steve Romero Howey.

    PSAUME 121 1 Cantique des degrés. Je lève mes yeux vers les montagnes… D’où me viendra le secours?

    2 Le secours me vient de l’Éternel, Qui a fait les cieux et la terre.

    3 Il ne permettra point que ton pied chancelle; Celui qui te garde ne sommeillera point.

    4 Voici, il ne sommeille ni ne dort, Celui qui garde Israël.

    5 L’Éternel est celui qui te garde, L’Éternel est ton ombre à ta main droite.

    6 Pendant le jour le soleil ne te frappera point, Ni la lune pendant la nuit.

    7 L’Éternel te gardera de tout mal, Il gardera ton âme;

    8 L’Éternel gardera ton départ et ton arrivée, Dès maintenant et à jamais.

    Salutations, Yves Ana Yosef Lilia Yisrael et Rachel

  • Soleil & Family Olsen

    Great Accomplishment! We are all thrilled for you and your team. We will pray for your safe journey home all the way to Big Bear Lake.

  • Jenny RRR

    The d-bag factor on this is off the charts. Unqualified parents again exploiting their children for 15 minutes of fame. This is not an accomplishment; it is a choreographed slap in the face to legitimate climbers and an embarrassment to Everest.

  • Congratulations, Jordan and parents. Our family (11yo, 9yo and parents) has been following your progress for many weeks. We are so very excited for your achievement! Take care trekking down. Best wishes from Wisconsin.

  • ljt

    Woo Hoo! Congrats to Jordan, Paul, and Karen and the rest of the team. I’ve been following this for the last month and I’m stoked for you all in a huge way.

    I remember years ago when this was being chatted about at Paul and Karen’s house when I visited and I thought “wow, thats crazy”. Then I lost contact, then all of a sudden I saw the article in Outside and recognized Jordan’s name and thought “no way”. Way!
    You guys really pulled it of. Congrats on your successes. Enjoy the afterglow.

    Steve Fitz.

  • Jeff
