In his senior year of high school, Jordan had developed ANCA vasculitis, a condition that severely affected his kidneys. After Jordan enrolled at Wake Forest in fall 2010, the condition did not improve, and by January 2011 he required a kidney transplant. Since none of Jordan's family members qualified as a donor, Walter offered to be a kidney donor for Jordan. The February 2011 operation was successful, and Jordan was able to start his baseball career for Wake Forest in spring 2012.
