On May 12, 2016 Jordan and her boyfriend Benji Piechoczek were going to spend the day at Springs State Park enjoying nature and each other's company before Jordan headed to London for a summer internship. As they waited to make a turn, their car was struck from behind and pushed into oncoming traffic. Both Jordan and Benji died at the scene of the accident and left this earth much too soon. This is why Driver Safety is so important to the Gutheim Family. The Foundation is pleased to announce that funding in the area of DRIVER SAFETY for 2023 has been awarded to the Lee County Sheriff's Teen Driver Challenge Program.

Jordan's Blessings were used to completely fund Two Additional Teen Driver Challenge Classes per year for 5 Years.  In 2023, an additional 4-year grant totaling $20,000 was provided.  Teens in these classes learn defensive driving skills such as threshold/emergency braking, backing, cornering, figure 8, off-road recovery, skid control and much more. This program combines classroom time and driving exercises to create a safe learning environment.
