Photo Credit: COURTNEY VAUGHN - Jenni Jordan.Jenni Jordan retired this week after 18 years of service with the Columbia County District Attorney's Office.

Jordan worked as a deputy district attorney and focused on cases involving children and child abuse.

Reflecting on her career, Jordan said working in the legal system was both rewarding and trying.

"I've had an amazing career," Jordan said. "I think the most stressful part of the job isn't what you do here, it's what you think about when you get home."

Jordan said working with child abuse cases can take its emotional toll, but she celebrated the progress she made.

Jordan comes from a family of lawyers. As her colleagues celebrated her career and retirement Monday, Dec. 1, Jordan said she "isn't done yet." She already has a list of projects she hopes to work on and family members she plans to visit.

"It was great fun," she said of her job at the District Attorney's Office. "I feel privileged to have had it."
