According to Jordan's agent, Don LeClair, the actor was driving to the Warner Bros. studio set of the Fox television series Call Me Kat when he apparently suffered from an unspecified "medical issue" while behind the wheel of his car, which caused the vehicle to collide with the side of a building.
It was determined that he had passed away at the site.

Kat owned the shop.
The show is heavily inspired by the British sitcom Miranda, and production has already begun on the third season of the show. Jordan, who was born in Tennessee, is best known to television audiences in the United States for his recurrent role on the NBC comedy series Will & Grace as Beverly Leslie.
In this role, he played the comically manipulative counterpart of the Karen character, which was played by Megan Mullally. Because of his performance in the role, he was awarded the Emmy in 2006 for best guest actor in a comedy series.
