|John Olerud's daughter Jordan dies at 19 after battling rare disease
Former MLB All-Star John Olerud’s daughter has died after battling a rare disease since birth.
Olerud’s daughter Jordan was born with a rare chromosomal disease. The Olerud family announced on Sunday that Jordan has died. She was 19.
So sad to hear about the passing of Jordan Olerud. To honor John, Kelly and Jordan you can contribute at http://JordanFund.org . Services for Jordan will be this Saturday.

Olerud and his wife Kelly have dedicated much of their lives to helping families of children with special needs. Jordan was born in August 2000, and John and Kelly launched the Jordan Fund in 2003.
Olerud was an extremely popular player during his MLB career both on and off the diamond. He batted .295 and piled up more than 2,000 hits from 1989 to 2005. Our thoughts are with him and his family during this difficult time.
