Jordan Sinclair came to Oakdale in the hopes of landing a big job at
Barbara Ryan Originals. Although once a very successful company it
was now struggling, so Barbara Ryan hired the ambitious Jordan as her
assistant. Jennifer initially disliked Jordan, but it didn't take
long for him to change her mind and they became close friends.
Jordan's new neighbor at the Lakeview was Rosanna Cabot. Rosanna,
the CEO of Cabot
Motors, tried to lure him away from BRO, saying that Paul Ryan intended
to oust Barbara from BRO. Jordan stayed with BRO and soon learned
the real reason he had been hired. Barbara Ryan was going blind!
Jennifer and Jordan were growing closer, but Jennifer appeared to
have some competition in Rosanna. Rosanna even managed to keep
Jordan from a date with Jennifer one evening. Confused as to why
Rosanna was so interested in him, Jordan was shocked when Paul presented
him with a portfolio of information Rosanna had gathered about Jordan.
An angry Jordan confronted Rosanna and was shocked with what he learned.
Rosanna had been told by some unknown person that in order to get the
adopted child she had lost returned to her, she had to marry Jordan!
It made no sense to Jordan but when he saw Rosanna's despair, he agreed
to marry her.
Jennifer was not happy about the marriage but Jordan convinced her it

the baby. Jordan quickly realized he wanted to be a part of his

started a relationship with each other. Barbara was worried that
the romantic relationships would bring James into their lives and put
them in danger. Meanwhile, James was insisting that Rosanna and
Jordan consummate their marriage. Rosanna was willing to do
anything to insure that she could keep Cabot, but Jordan refused.
Instead Paul came up with a plan to get James out of their lives for
good by having him transferred to a different prison. While he was
being transferred, with Barbara's help, James escaped. James
then kidnapped Rosanna and Cabot. Paul found them and was able to
but there was an explosion before he was able to rescue Cabot.
Both Rosanna and Jordan were completely overcome with grief from the
death of Cabot. Instead of turning to Paul and Jennifer for
comfort, they turned to each other. They immediately regretted
what had happened. Sadly, Jennifer arrived the next morning in time to
discover that Rosanna and Jordan had spent the night together.
Jennifer was never able to forgive Jordan and it was the end of their

Walsh at Worldwide. He soon became friends with Lucinda's daughter

used, and refusing to spy on his friend, Jordan soon left Oakdale.
