A journey from a town of 800 people to an Olympic gold medalist, Jordan Larson, has made her parents & hometown proud.
She is the daughter of Kevin Larson and Kendra Kae Clough (late).
No wonder fans are eager to know how they raised the volleyball star. For sure, her dad & mom gave their best to raise such a promising athlete but her mother is no more with her.
Larson’s mother died of breast cancer to whom she often dedicates her games & achievements on the court & social media.
Born Jordan Quinn Larson (b. October 16, 1986), the American volleyball player goes by the nickname “The Governor”- thanks to her popularity in her hometown Nebraska.

She currently plays for the Italian club Vero Volley Milano (2022- present).
She’s been playing for the United States women’s national volleyball team since 2009, joining the likes of Micha Hancock, Ali Frantti & Morgan Hentz.
Not to mention, Larson is a three-time Olympic medalist- all medals (gold, medal & silver).
The US volleyball team won over Brazil to top the podium, winning the gold medal in the 2020 Summer Olympics.
Moreover, Jordan Larson represented the United States in the 2014 FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Championship and took home the gold medal.
The University of Nebraska alumna was an outside hitter for the collegiate varsity team & led them to a national title in 2006 as a sophomore.
