Good Morning Texas, at WFAA Channel 8, interviewed Heather & Andrew Santiago, and Jocelyn Phillips (STA) to share the importance of BIPOC organ donors and Jordan’s legacy gift.
Jordan’s story was highlighted by Donate Life Texas at Texas Monthly. The article shares about Jordan’s achievements and how he saved lives through organ donation.
Last Saturday, a group of Jordan’s friends represented the Jordan Santiago iCare Foundation at the annual Hope Starts Here 5K. This event was created to honor families impacted by organ, eye, and tissue donation while raising support for Southwest Transplant Alliance’s programs.
The TV channel interviewed Ernest Wright – the man who received Jordan`s heart – and the Santiagos. Andrew and Heather had the opportunity to hear their son’s heart beating in Ernest’s chest.
On April 1st, 2022 the Santiagos attended a special event at Baylor Scott & White in Dallas as the hospital kicked off National Donate Life Month by honoring Jordan Santiago. The family raised a ‘Donate Life’ flag, met some of the organ recipients and some of the hospital staff who took care of Jordan.
