Meet Jordan Lopez

A native Charlottean can feel like a rare breed in our city nowadays, but Jordan Lopez was proudly born and raised in East Charlotte and will bring his lifelong passion for his home to the legislature as the Representative for District 112. Jordan and his sister were raised by a mother who taught them to value compassion, honesty, and hard work for the things they care about most.

Jordan is a proud product of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, where educators and community members alike helped shape him into the man he is today, fostering a passion for service that he still carries with him. With the lessons he learned at home and at school in mind, he pursued an undergraduate degree in Political Science from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and a Masters of Public Administration from North Carolina Central University, from which he graduated Magna Cum Laude.

After receiving his graduate degree, Jordan has spent the last few years working to help ensure that North Carolina is a strong community that is welcoming and accessible to all. He has served on the Board of Directors for community advocacy group CharlotteEAST, is a member of the Eastland Park stakeholder group, has served as the Chair of the Black Political Caucus of Charlotte-Mecklenburg’s Get-Out-The-Vote (GOTV) Committee, was a recipient of Elevate Lifestyle’s 2023 30 Under 30 “Future Leaders of Charlotte” Award, serves as a member of the Andrea Harris Task Force for Racial Equity appointed by Gov. Cooper, and is a former member of the Charlotte Community Relations Committee appointed by Mayor Lyles.
