CATONSVILLE, Md. — A large tribute to a man committed to helping others.

On Sunday, The "Y" in Catonsville dedicated their climbing wall to Jordan Taylor, affectionately known as Coach Jordan.

Jordan was an associate of the "Y" for 10 years. The 31-year-old died following a home invasion last November.

The plaque next to the wall says he will be remembered for being full of grace, modesty, kindness, deep intelligence, a dry wit and selflessness.

He filled many roles at the "Y" including supervising the climbing wall.

The plaque goes on to say that in Jordan’s honor, we strive to climb a little higher and go a little further to bring comfort and joy to all those we encounter.

There's a $20,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in his murder.
