LAKE STEVENS, WA, U.S.A.
STUDENT, EVERETT COMMUNITY COLLEGE
07/30/2016, MUKILTEO, WA, U.S.A.
Three teenage friends were killed in a shooting at a Mukilteo house party. Anna Bui, Jake Long and Jordan Ebner – all 19 years old – died in an early Saturday morning shooting.
“He was my first boy,” said Jordan’s father, Brad Ebner. “I would do anything for him.”
Mr. Ebner and Jordan moved to Lake Stevens several years ago. Jordan spent most of his life in Mukilteo, where he graduated from Kamiak High School.
“I asked him if there was anywhere you can live, anywhere in the world (and) he said Mukilteo; he had so many friends who he loved,” Brian Ebner said.
It’s also where Jordan spent the last moments of his life, with those friends. Brian Ebner said of his son Jordan: “He was the best kid, he got good grades, never got into trouble.” Every minute is a struggle for Jordan’s parents. “It’s overwhelming how the community has come together,” Brian Ebner said.
“I would give my life right now, I just want him to come home,” added Mr. Ebner.
Jordan was a student at Everett Community College; a professor there described Jordan as disciplined, respectful, friendly and on track to pursue aviation. I just miss him every day,” his father Brad Ebner said. “I wish I could be with him.” Brad Ebner remembers his son as a quiet kid who came out of his shell in Junior High School. He coached Jordan in Little League, and called it “the best time in my life.” Jordan’s father wears a wristband with the words “Live Love For Jordan.”
“That’s what I want to come out of this. Just live and love for Jordan,” he said.
