Vernon Jordan net worth: Vernon Jordan is an American lawyer and civil rights activist who has a net worth of $12 million dollars. Born in Georgia, Vernon Jordan excelled in school, and went on to graduate from DePauw University in 1957. He then went on to earn his law degree from the Howard University School of Law. He returned to Georgia after graduating in order to work for Donald L. Hollowell, a lawyer devoted to civil rights. As a lawyer at Mr. Hollowell's firm, he was instrumental in winning a lawsuit against the University of Georgia for racial discrimination in their admission policies. From there, he went on to work as a field director for the NAACP, worked for the Voter Education Project, served as Executive Director of the United Negro College Fund, and was the President of the National Urban League for ten years. In 1980, he was shot while standing outside a hotel, but survived. He served as an advisor to Bill Clinton while he was a governor and then President. He continues to work as a managing director and counselor for multiple companies and politicians.
Vernon Eulion Jordan, Jr. (born August 15, 1935) is an African-American lawyer, business executive and civil rights activist in the United States. A leading figure in the civil rights movement, he was chosen by President Bill Clinton as a close adviser. Jordan has become known as an influential figure in American politics.
Vernon Jordan was born in Georgia to Mary Jordan and Vernon E. Jordan Sr; he has a brother Windsor. He is the cousin of James Shaw, a musician who is professionally billed as "The Mighty Hannibal."
Jordan grew up with his family in Atlanta's segregated society during the 1950s. He was an honor graduate of David Tobias Howard High School. Rejected for a summer intern's job with an insurance company because of his race after his sophomore year in college, he earned money for a few summers for college by working as a chauffeur to the former city mayor Robert Maddox, then a banker. Jordan graduated from DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana, in 1957. He earned a law degree at Howard University School of Law in 1960. He is a member of the Omega Psi Phi and Sigma Pi Phi fraternities.
Jordan returned to Atlanta to join the law office of Donald L. Hollowell, a civil rights activist. The firm, including Constance Motley, sued the University of Georgia for racial discrimination in its admission policies. The suit ended in 1961 with a Federal Court order demanding the admission of two African Americans, Charlayne Hunter and Hamilton E. Holmes. Jordan personally escorted Hunter past a group of angry white protesters to the university admissions office.
After leaving private law practice in the early 1960s, Jordan became directly involved in activism in the field, serving as the Georgia field director for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. From the NAACP, he moved to the Southern Regional Council and then to the Voter Education Project.
In 1970, Jordan became executive director of the United Negro College Fund. H
