Jordan and Rebecca were on a cruise ship to Mexico attending separate family vacations. They met in the hot tub. “We spent much of the duration of the cruise watching shows in the theater and talking in the buffet for hours on end,” reflected Jordan Evans. With three young children and four pets, the Evans family moved to Rancho Santalina over a year ago. They’ve lived in and out of the community. “We sold our house in Temecula and wanted to be closer to the business and family, so we moved back,” added Jordan.
“We like to have family dance parties in the family room.”
Jordan is the managing partner at The UPS Store in Encinitas, a career he started when he joined the company at age 16. He holds a bachelor’s degree in business management from University of Phoenix. The Encinitas location is the number one store for sales volume in the county, and the second UPS store to offer onsite 3D printing.
Rebecca published Handmade Hostess two years ago, a book she co-wrote with her sister about hosting memorable parties. She reveals their passions for do-it-yourself decorating, baking, and sewing. With the family’s fondness for entertaining, they stay active – family trips to Disneyland, the beach, and camping are their favorite activities together. The Evans’ are also committed to the Ronald McDonald House, which focuses on the needs of critically ill children and their families. They volunteer wherever help is needed. Jordan is on several committees and is on the board of the Red Shoe Society. He’s planning Red Shoe Day and co-chairing Red Shoes and Brews.
Kaden and Taylor will attend La Costa Meadows Elementary this fall. Kaden is involved with competitive saber fencing, while Taylor is exploring various interests. They both love reading and playing with their little sister Dillon. “We like to have family dance parties in the family room,” expressed Jordan. Sometimes the kids have pretty good moves, or they get silly and let loose. “It’s super important to be able to laugh and have fun together. With three kids, a dog, three cats, and a rabbit, we find ourselves constantly laughing at the chaos.” It’s the celebration of all the little moments that makes life more joyful for the Evans family.
