Principal Technical Training Consultant
Mark Jordan (a.k.a. SAS Jedi) grew up in northeast Brazil as the son of Baptist missionaries. He served 20 years as a US Navy submariner, pursuing his passion for programming as a hobby. Upon retiring from the Navy in 1994, he turned his hobby into a dream job and has been a SAS programmer ever since.
Mark writes and teaches a broad spectrum of SAS Foundation programming classes, and is proud to announce his first book, “Mastering the SAS® DS2 Procedure: Advanced Data Wrangling Techniques” published by SAS Press and available on Amazon.
When he isn’t writing, teaching, or posting “Jedi SAS Tricks” here on the SAS Learning Post, Mark enjoys playing with his grand and great-grandchildren, hanging out at the beach and reading science fiction novels. His secret obsession is flying toys – kites, rockets, drones – and though he cunningly tries to convince Lori that they are for the grandkids, she isn’t buying it. Mark lives in Toano, VA with his wife, Lori, and their cat, the amazing Tiger Man. You can follow him on Twitter @SASJedi or connect on Facebook or LinkedIn
