  • Such a beautiful and touching tribute

  • I have recently lost my brother and I totally agree that Jordan will always be by your side. You will never forget him. And I too get through my day not knowing how the hell I got here. Jordan is proud for f you and so am I. Thank you so very much for this film. I am not alone 😭🥺😓🤗

  • Beautiful. Thank you so much for posting this here.

  • Great job your brother is proud

  • The coach scene they made was super funny. Definitely a team player, made back when adults were still expected to be adults and not this every adult is a kid forever to get popular on social media...

  • Thank you for sharing your wonderful brother with all of us.

  • A nurse who took care of Jordan was actually slowly poisoning him to end his suffering.

  • For a second I thought it was Maluma. This made me cry man. especially when he told his mom to help him. I am inspired to make a film like this for my uncle because he also died of cancer

  • God Bless You and your family the pain of loosing this Angel must be unbearable... Thank you so very much for sharing his light with us... I laughed, cried and am better for watching this documentary. Much Love and Respect from Canada

  • Scrolling through the comments trying to hold the tears back

  • Rest In Paradise Angel On Earth

  • I came here, not knowing what to expect, and ended up crying for a stranger I have never known. I may have never known Jordan personally, but I felt like he was an amazing friend and brother. This documentary was beautiful, and Jordan would be so proud of you. Thank you for sharing his story and legacy Justin

  • What an amazingly, beautiful testimony of true "storge" love between family members, and especially two blood brothers in the same family! Your openness (all of you) is beyond words! My heart truly goes out to you because you've grieved/and still, are grieving for sooo long!! Justin, I am confident that not only Abba Father, (can & wants to heal you totally) but your brother Jordan, if he could, would also like to see you healed, whole, and move on in life! You've forgotten/failed to "not emulate" this other unique, special gift & aspect of his amazing life and legacy to you. JUSTIN: Please, please, please "choose" LIFE; let go/deny that pining spirit's dominion over your soul, spirit and life, in Jesus name! It's making your soul/body/spirit sick inside! Abba Father (nor Jordan) do not want for you or anyone to "continue idolizing Jordan; He is a jealous God!" And I am not saying, "forget," but contrary--keep loving Jordan--and let go "of the pain, pining, sadness of heart, spirit, and soul In Jesus name! You deserve better, Abba Father wants and can heal you (your thinking in this area Must be renewed!). Seek qualified Christian professional psychologist. If Jordan could speak, he would agree! There is a special lady (perhaps, you even know her now among your female friends), with whom God can help you spend the rest of your life! Not to mention, birth some children of your own to father! Jordan is surely not happy with sooo much dependance and responsibility on him past his earthly life (it's too much to bear for any human being) belongs "only to God the Father, Jesus, and Holy Spirit". Really give them the opportunity/chance to "help" you, precious Justin. You, too, "are a testimony for His Glory!" Jesus is waiting for you to agree and make it happen!" With much, much love, grace and compassion. Your sister in Christ Jesus.

  • Beautiful simply beautiful.... time does not heal we just learn to live with it ... You touched my soul God bless you ...

  • I feel this guy’s pain. Ironically, my sister (she raised me) died August 19th of this year. My brother committed suicide when I was 16 as well. It never gets any easier. This was a great documentary full of love.

    • I'm so sorry for your loss. My condolences to you and your family, may your siblings watch over you from above

  • I blubbered like a baby

  • “jordan was my best man.” man that got me 😢

  • I'm so sorry you lost your brother ❤️. He sounds like an AMAZING man. I lost my brother to cancer October 5, 2018. The kindest man I've ever known. He was an amazing artist, composer, and author and I miss him dearly. Rest peacefully to your brother and I hope somehow he meets my brother Walter on the other side ❤️

  • I held it together until the "I want to wear his number" I lost both my parents, my mum passed from cancer and my family fell apart, seen my brother once since. Here's to one day finding a cure. Great doc and a great brother god bless ya

  • I never spoke to my husband about his dying. Age 46 triple black belt in Judo ,the tall handsome athlete he had the all clear and when it came back it was like a thief in the night. I understand, my heart is with you. Jordan sounded amazing Bless.

  • This will forever change my head set on basketball and my head in life. Thank you

  • What an incredible documentary that made me feel like I was family and brought me in, where I feel like I've known them both as long as they've been alive. I know the documentary is meant to honor Jordan's life and it does this so very well but it also demonstrates what an amazing man and loving brother that Justin has become and probably always was. Thank you Justin, for telling your brother's story. What an honor it is to experience this with you, to feel joy and to feel pain and to just feel cleansed when it is all said and done. I can't thank you enough.

  • I know that sound he described,its called a death rattle and once you hear it it never leaves you. This was heart breaking to watch


  • I think of this beautiful story as affirming of a wonderful family rather than something sad It shows how precious love is how we treasure the ones we love The deep love respect between brothers is never ending🙏🙏❤️❤️

  • A beautiful tribute to your brother and your coach. The world is a better place because they were in it. You have a beautiful family and the love that it displays is a reflection of Christ. Thank you for sharing this very moving tribute.

  • Hi Justin, You did a great job on this documentery! it made me cry. It is also very Nice tot see all the homevideo's from the 90's. I see that all the boys are raised with a lot of love❤️

  • Before watching, I'm really sensing this will be similar to: Dear Zachary For those who also couldn't remember why this seemed familiar in a way

  • Greetings From Florida and Thank You for Sharing ❤️ He’s Gone to Glory 🌈 living in God’s House Now 👑 Your Video shows Your Pain into Purpose serving Sooo many , is Awesome and a Beautiful Testimonial ! Please keep shooting hoops and loving life ❤️

  • What an amazing story, I laughed and cried throughout the whole thing....not only was Jordan an amazing brother, friend and son but your whole family was a whole complete unit.... I guess what I’m trying to say is you guys made so many people better for knowing you guys! I also want to say I completely feel the same way when you said time doesn’t heal because I believe that as well... I had 4 sisters no brothers in 2015 I lost my oldest sister 2 years older than me to cancer and 2 months later I lost my other sister 2 years younger than me, the pain never goes away it’s as painful today as the day I lost them but I know I will be with them again when I walk through the gates of heaven to meet our Heavenly Father, they will be there waiting for me. I want to thank you for sharing your beautiful story , stay strong and always talk about him and know by you sharing your story you are helping someone that has just lost a loved one. God bless you and your family 🙏❤️ later I lost my

  • Ayy Oklahoma!!! This is like I just met him haha this is a masterpiece

  • Thank you Justin for introducing your brother Jordan to me, it was a pleasure meeting him. 🙏🏻

  • You accomplished what you set out to do with this amazing film tribute to your brother Jordan. You are a very talented filmmaker. I feel the pain, love, loss and joy that you and your family and friends expressed in your words. I am a stranger. I have never met your brother. Thank you for sharing his beautiful life story.

  • Beautiful 🏵️ Most if us will never experience that closeness with a sibling

  • This was legit one of the best, pure, emotional things I have ever seen. Your brother would be so proud of you all. Thank you on behalf of all of us watching, for letting us in to a very personal set of moments.

  • This most definitely deserves every view it gets. So simple yet so in-depth and heart felt. I feel your pain brother I’ve also had to experience what cancer does to a family and loved ones. I was blessed to see my brother pull through, but it’s terrifying to know you could lose them any day. RIP J

  • I have no words to say how I feel about this extraordinary, beautiful documentary and about the love you have for your brother. What a great treasure you and your family had/ have, because in YOU your brother will continue to live. Because of you your children will know him and feel his presence by your examples, because of you he will always be remembered. What a great example you are to pass down the love you have for another human being. Grief has no time limit. I am proud you were able to express your love in this documentary. Many blessings to your family and those who you love.

  • I have my theories about the 2.7K thumbs down! However, I will not give it the time or the energy, it pales in comparison to the significance of the love story on the screen. This family and their extended 'family' are a powerful testimony of the power of the Almighty in our world. Revelation 7:12 HalaluYAH, Amein!!!!

  • Thank you!

  • Thank you Justin for sharing this! Thank you Jordan for living life how it should be!

  • i usually don’t watch documentaries bc they are long and boring but this one kept my attention and wasn’t boring at all and your family is in my prayers

  • LOVE never leaves, may you remember always and honor those memories as you have with this work. I'm heartbroken, but in all the right ways and honored to have watched your story.....He will live on in all of you who loved him so truly, as truly as he taught you to love. Be blessed and joyful 🙏

  • It's been many, many years that anything has made me cry like this. RIP Jordan - Peace & Love to his Family & Friends

  • Thanks for sharing a great story about your brother...👍

  • This was beautiful

  • ❤️❤️❤️❤️💔💔 xx

  • I don't know how I stumbled on this,sitting here balling my eyes out,yet I'm so glad. What a beautiful tribute. "You bleed out for the rest of your life" so true.

  • OMG i have cried and i understand your loss he will be proud off you take care from belgium

  • Wow! What a brilliant Tribute!!! Justin, I pray that God shines His light on you and your family and that He eases your pain, and that you know that even though Jordan is not here, know that God and Jordan are still on the "wing of life" waiting to shoot that 3 ball off your assist brother. Continue to touch lives wherever you go, just like Jordan did when he was here, and may you continue to penetrate in the paint of trials and tribulations and score every time! Sending you love from New Zealand and Australia brother! God Bless : )

  • when the chain is broken life is never the same.

  • I think he summed it up so perfectly, when you love someone so much, when they're gone, all you are really doing for the rest of your life is " hopping on one foot" god bless xxxx

  • Wow! What a human Being. Anyone who Passes through this world And leaves witnesses to His unique personhood & Kindness has enriched The world. Your story telling & Love for your brother Are remarkable.

  • I'm not so good at Englisch.. what happend to him?

  • This was beautiful. I have two sons who are 2.5 years apart and I hope that they love each other like you do... This meant so much to so many who loved him I am sure.

  • Beautiful

  • I'm so sorry for your loss Justin.

  • Justin this is a beautiful dedication to your brother. I know the pain😢😢😭😭😭. God bless you and your family sweetheart.

  • It’s the dislikes for me. People are genuinely evil. This was beautiful, May he rest in peace 🤍

  • Your soulmate isn't always your spouse, boy or girlfriend, your souls were connected on an unimaginable level, your brother was your soulmate ❤️98.99999999% of the people in the world will NEVER experience love on this level! How ABSOLUTELY lucky were you!! ☺️As short as his life was, he "DID" life right. Leaving this world a little bit better than how he found it. And he's still doing it! Through you!!!!! With everything in me, I thank you!❤️❤️❤️❤️

  • This was a really beautiful tribute; I'm sorry for your loss, but grateful you could channel that pain into something like this. I didn't realize how much my own grief (I lost the closest thing I had to a Mother 5 years ago, My best friend died 2 years ago, and my 3 other closest friends had passed over the previous 6 years.) had become a barrier in so much of my life. You're right about bleeding on everything you touch being the price of love in the context of grief; and the pain has closed me off more than I acknowledged. Somehow it seemed less painful to disconnect. Thank you for sharing your story too.

  • Definitely glad I watched ❤️

  • This was so beautiful and well put together💚💚R.I.P.Jordan so sorry for your loss.

  • The best ones die young😓

  • I don’t feel right being here 😐

  • I am so glad I took the time to watch this video I laughed a lot I cried a lot wow his was such a powerful. Life

  • What a beautiful story of love and loss of someone that was apparently an amazing person!

  • This deserves to be on Netflix.

  • My only son was murdered last year at 44 years. I’m awake right now. For the last 18 months. 😣😓 most horrible thing in the world.

  • This shit hurted

  • I cried...a lot....thank you for letting us know Jordan

  • R.I.P Jordan.

  • Exquisitely beautiful and tragically heartbreaking. What an amazing family you have. What immense love you all have for each other. What a gift

  • God bless youz from mexico

  • That was beautiful!

  • Rip Jordan 💜💜💜💜

  • Thank you Justin for sharing beautiful Jordan with us. God bless you and we love you.

  • Being his brother, you give him the greatest gift of all. What a wonderful memory you shared with the world! 💗✝️🙏

  • Thank you so much for sharing this love♥️

  • I know I don’t fully know him but I know that he would be a great person ❤️

  • This documentary absolutely broke my heart. I wept so much over the incredible loss I could see in each of the faces of the family and dear friends of Jordan. The part that absolutely floored me and made me have to just pause the show and weep is when Jordan's mother told of when he was in the car with her and he suddenly exclaimed, "MOM! PLEASE HELP ME!" That just gutted me. I can't even think of that without tearing up and feel my heart ache for the whole family. My heart goes out to each and every one of those that knew and loved Jordan. After watching this wonderful documentary I feel like I know Jordan a tiny bit, or at least know what kind of person he really was. I suddenly lost my wife in January of 2008, so that year just wasn't a good year. My wife died suddenly of a heart defect that was unknown to everyone until it took her life. It's amazing how something can suddenly develop and take us into God's care. I learned to be more in tune with people and love them as if our lives depend on it, and they do. Im so happy Justin has found the things in him and in others to continue to live life to the fullest. I pray he continues in that. The wonderful quality of this documentary is as good as or better than anything on Netflix and most networks. I sincerely mean that. Its pacing, videography, graphics content, compilation order, and everything else is as professional as I've ever seen. It really should be put on Netflix. I pray that each and every family member of Jordan can find enjoyable and full lives as all of you move forward through the years. Take care and God bless each of you.

  • A thank you somehow does not suffice when expressing one's appreciation in cinematically glimpsing such a profound love. Such a beautiful life and love to behold. Warm hugs to all who may be stumbling on this earthly walk x

  • a geat documentary tho

  • I’m floored by the way you chose to tell this story. Captivated. What a gorgeous love letter to your brother. Thank you for sharing it with us.

  • Very Very Sweet!!!Youre not so bad yourself Justin!!! Awsome Documentary! God Bless YOU all!

  • ❤️❤️❤️

  • Wow. I’m beyond moved. I’m sorry for your lost. But I’m thankful for your strength to introduce us all with your big brother Jordan. Thank you so much.

  • Anyone know the song at the end?


  • So sorry that you lost your brother and it’s true siblings normally knows without speaking exactly what the other one is thinking 🤔 my sisters are that way with me I pray for you and your family hope your grief gets easier but like you said when they are gone how can you ever forget about that person who was with you always . RIP brother, and I pray for you .
