A Powerful History
Jordan Low prepared for the likes of the U.S Naval Academy and West Point, ready to take the path of a military college followed by a career as an officer in the U.S. military. However, this would ultimately end up not being his calling. He chose to join the Israeli military, where he felt he could make a more significant contribution. Jordan became a sharpshooter in Israel's prestigious Golani Brigade, where he served for three years and deployed for tours in Lebanon and Gaza.
In the summer of 2014, his unit engaged in Operation Protective Edge. During this summer war, Israel fought the Hamas in Gaza with the mission of locating and destroying tunnels that the Hamas had built from Gaza into civilian areas in Israel. Hamas operatives have infiltrated Israeli civilian communities numerous times, committing unspeakable acts of violence. During this operation, a Hamas anti-tank missile hit a building occupied by Jordan’s squadron. The building went up in flames, but he was able to guide his team to safety. However, while helping his squad escape, he suffered severe smoke inhalation from the missile's strike. Jordan was the last person to leave the building and was immediately evacuated. His injury resulted in a 6-week stay in ICU and an additional 10.5 months of recovery after his release. Following his rehabilitation, he returned to service to finish his contract, despite attempts by IDF to give him an early honorable discharge.
After his service, Jordan enrolled at the world-renowned Hebrew University of Jerusalem, where he began his Bachelor of Arts in International Relations. Despite being early in his school career, he recognized two things by 2018. Firstly, Jordan wanted to start a business in the defense industry, and secondly, he wanted to work with his family. It was then that Jordan and his father decided to start a business together. They named the nascent company ‘First Breach’. In Hebrew, the name of Jordan’s unit in Golani, Unit 51, translates to "The First Breachers." Golani is known for being on the front lines and breaching enemy lines or compounds ahead of other units. It was then, in 2018, that the company was born from those deep-rooted foundations.
