Angela Jordan named Director of Development

October 10, 2022 | Angela Jordan

2022-Angela-hire

Angela Jordan has been a key volunteer at Prospect Meadows over years as a fundraiser, a member of the board of directors and a cheerful golf-cart driver for players and fans.

She’s helped steer the complex from dream to reality, and now she’ll be playing an even bigger role as the new Director of Development.

“It will be fun, I know that for sure, having been a volunteer for a number of years,” Angela said Thursday during her first day on the job. “I’m excited about it.”

Angele will be heavily involved with fundraising, grant writing, working with donors and sponsors, helping with special events and marketing. “A fun variety,” as she described it.

Angela and her husband, Dennis, have been involved at Prospect Meadows since the planning stage. They have three sons who played travel ball when they were younger, and the family traveled all over the Midwest to Omaha, Chicago, Kansas City and points in between, always wondering why Eastern Iowa did not have a complex that could host major events.

Jack Roeder, the president and CEO at Prospect Meadows, attended some of those same events in the Midwest with his grandson and got to know the Jordan family. One thing led to another and now Angela has become an even bigger part of the team.

Prospect Meadows opened in 2019 to rave reviews after years of planning and fundraising.

“It’s beautiful,” said Angela. “We get so many compliments from people who had never been to Iowa before. It’s been amazing.”

Angela was a four-sport athlete at West Branch High School in volleyball, basketball, track and softball. She worked for the American Red Cross from

1998 to 2011, including seven years as a local executive director, and she’s also been involved with private business.

Angela described “operational funding” as a big piece of her new job, along with putting the finishing touches on Phase I of the complex with the eight regulation fields and the Miracle Field.

“We need support from the community,” she said.

Now that Angela is a full-time employee at Prospect Meadows, she no longer serves on the Board of Directors to avoid a possible conflict of interest.
