He went to Pleasant Valley High School in his hometown and was good in every sport that he trained.
He finally started playing football more seriously and became a quarterback for his school team.
He was also great in basketball and athletics so he made a few achievements in this area too.
He finished high school and enrolled the Butte College, a community college in the north of California.
He was a backup quarterback for the college team and in 2008 the school his team won the national title the same year. He was one of the reasons why the team succeeded.
In 2009 he broke the school’s record as the best offensive player and he also got his academic records.
His great play brought him a scholarship at Vanderbilt University. He turned away proposals from Kansas and Kentucky who also offered him great chances of development.
He began playing for their team in 2011, and in 2012 he was already a co-captain of offense. His game improved rapidly and Jason began to be irreplaceable.
Rodgerses stats were among the best in the history of Vanderbilt Commodores. His achievements are posted on the college walls.

He continued his career in Miami Dolphins but he was cut after only one month. He couldn’t contribute to the team properly.
At the end of 2014 he joined the BC Lions but he quit himself in 2015. He realized that his time in football has passed.
In 2015 started a whole new period of his career, the one in the media: he appeared in a film called “Pitch Perfect 2” ( which is a musical comedy) with a minor role, and in 2016 he was the winner of “The Bachelorette” show where he dated Joelle Fletcher and they became engaged.
In 2016 he also started his career as a college football analyst on the SEC Network. He mainly analyses NFL games because of his past.
Aaron Rodgers is a quarterback for the Green Bay Packers and he also happens to be Jordan’s brother. During the last season of the show “The Bachelorette” the viewers found out about a well hid family feud going on for quite some time.
As the members of the family say it started when Aaron began his relationship with an actress Olivia Munn. It seems like she is the reason of all this tensions.
Jordan said in the show that he hasn’t seen his brother for almost two years and that Aaron doesn’t contact with the family nor the family has his cell number.
Aaron missed his grandfather’s funeral on purpose and stopped showing up on his friend’s weddings just to avoid his family.
That upsets Jordan very much because for him the family is very important.
Jordan himself was in relationship with Brittany Farrar in 2014, before he entered the show. She attacked him on Twitter calling him a cheater after he coupled up with JoJo in the first episode of TV reality show called “The Bachelorette”.
