Obituary for James "Jim" Even Jorde

James (Jim) Even Jorde went home to his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on June 26th, 2019 at the age of 83 after an extended illness with cancer. He passed on in his home and was surrounded by family at the time of his passing. Jim was a devoted husband, father, brother, and friend to many. He came to the Lord in 1978 and loved to share his faith in Jesus with all who would listen. His favorite bible verse was Hebrews 13:5b in the Amplified version, “For He (God) Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. I will not, I will not, I will not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let you down (relax My hold on you)! Assuredly not!” He also loved to go fishing. He was quite the tease and loved to get his wife’s goat, much to her chagrin. He was a very bright and creative man and invented a chainsaw sharpener that many in the logging community lauded as the best they had ever seen. Jim moved his family from Massachusetts to Idaho in 1973 to begin work at the INL. He later decided to again start up a business he had while still in Massachusetts with air-conditioning and refrigeration. Jim was very mechanically inclined and could fix anything. The biggest highlight of his life was when he accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior in 1978. He never looked back from that point and grew ever closer in his relationship with his Lord. He was confident and never doubted that he was going to his eternal home once his journey in this life came to a close. We will miss him terribly, but we know we will see him again.
Jim was born on September 17th, 1935 in Drayton, North Dakota to Ford and Marie Jorde. He is survived by his wife, Beverly Jorde; seven children Linda, David, Ronald, Steven, Phillip, James (Kristal), and Michael (Didi); seven grandchildren Hillary, Drew, Rayce, Taylor, Brooke, Mathias, and Chayce; one great-grandchild, Laila; siblings Michael Jorde (Beverly), Sandy Ebertowski (Gary), Caroline Bosh (George), and Daniel Horski. He is preceded in death by his parents, Ford and Marie Jorde; his daughter, Julie Jorde Jenkins; and his brother, Bobby John Horski.
There will be a celebration of life service at a later date yet to be determined.
Jim’s family is very appreciative of the outpouring of love expressed to them during this time.
