“Dr Jordaan will be remembered as an outstanding and dedicated medical professional and a remarkable individual. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Jennifer, children, family and friends at this most difficult time,” says Dr Billyy van der Merwe, managing director of Netcare’s Primary Care Division, of which Medicross is a subsidiary.

“His colleagues at Medicross Boksburg describe Dr Jordaan as ‘a doctor, a father and a friend’, and his kind and caring nature will not be forgotten. His presence was a joy and comfort to many, and memories of Dr Jordaan will forever be treasured by those who knew him.”

The doctors, dentists and staff of Medicross Boksburg sent personal messages of condolence to Dr Jordaan’s family, recalling their special memories of him.

“He became a treasured colleague and a dear friend. Doctors, staff and patients of Medicross Boksburg all grew to love him for his special personality,” adds Dr Frans Coetsee, who worked with Dr Jordaan for some 20 years.

He was passionate about his medical career and expertly assisted on innumerable medical procedures. When he was not busy with his patients, Dr Jordaan was especially fond of gardening. 

 

“We are immensely grateful for Dr Jordaan’s contribution over the past 21 years, and he will be sorely missed,” Dr Van der Merwe concludes.
