Jordan John, a 2002 graduate of Robinson Secondary School in Fairfax County who received a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from the University of Memphis in December, died Feb. 2 at his home in Burke, Va. He was 29.

The cause was complications from diabetes, said his father, Lamonte John.

Jordan Llewellyn John was born in Murray, Utah, and moved to Burke with his family in 1988. Before enrolling at the University of Memphis, he studied at Northern Virginia Community College and worked at Intersections Inc., a Chantilly-based provider of protection against identify theft.

He was a member of the Burke Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and its lay priesthood.

Survivors include his parents, Lamonte and Bonnie Lewis John of Burke; his maternal grandparents, Helen Peterson and Hyrum Peterson of North Ogden, Utah; his paternal grandmother, Eileen John of Malad City, Idaho; and three brothers.
