Meet the 2016 Gold Rush Squad: Danielle L. and Jordan

Posted Dec 23, 2016

Throughout the season we will introduce you to all 40 members of the 2016 Gold Rush Squad. Today meet Danielle L., a rookie member from Cupertino, Calif. and Jordan a second-year member from Petaluma, Calif.


Each week, 49ers.com gets to know two members of the 49ers Gold Rush. This week, we meet rookie member Danielle L. from Cupertino, Calif. and Jordan, a second-year member from Petaluma, Calif.



What do you like most about being a member of the Gold Rush?

DANIELLE

DANIELLE L.: I like that I get to be a part of history. At mini camp we learned so much about Gold Rush and the history behind this team, which makes me feel honored to be a part of it.

JORDAN: I have been blessed with the opportunity to perform in front of the 49ers Faithful, but performing is just a small aspect of the job. Throughout the season, we’re lucky to be a part of many different appearances, events and charities. It’s an extremely rewarding experience.

What's something our fans would be surprised to learn about you?

DANIELLE L.: On my third season as an NBA dancer for the Golden State Warriors, I got to experience the 2015 Championship!

JORDAN: I am a volunteer with Mentor Me Petaluma. This local organization pairs adults with at risk children. Once a week, I meet with a young girl who brightens my day. Our weekly meetings consist of trips to the park, fun treats like frozen yogurt, or manicures and pedicures! The small amount of time that I spend with her each week makes such a huge difference in not only her life, but mine as well.

Who is the most inspirational person in your life?

DANIELLE L.: My mother. She has taught me how to be a strong independent woman and to always pursue everything I want in life.

JORDAN

JORDAN: My two older sisters are both extremely successful young women. They motivate me in every aspect of life. Without them, I wouldn’t be the person I am today.


What is your biggest goal this season?

JORDAN: I valued the experience and knowledge passed down to me from the veterans during my first year. My goal this season as a veteran is to help guide the first year members through one of the most unique and exciting experiences of their lives.

What is your biggest fear?

DANIELLE L.: Heights! I hate roller coasters and being on planes.


What is your most embarrassing moment?

JORDAN: When I fell while running up the aisle in a movie theater. I had a bag of popcorn in my hands and everything went flying, including me! Luckily, it was before the movie had started and I laughed it off with a friend.


What is your dream job?

DANIELLE L.: Owning my own dance studio! That’s been my dream ever since I was a little girl.


What have you learned from being a member of the Gold Rush?

DANIELLE L.: The value in sisterhood. The women that I’m surrounded by on this team are independent and driven and those are qualities I always strive to achieve.
