We feel that the actions taken and the insensitive comments made by Jordan were way out of line with our values and beliefs.

Status Labs announces that Jordan French has resigned as Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately, and will no longer be involved in the operation of the business.

Status Labs’ employees asked French to resign after reviewing actions taken outside of his role at Status Labs that do not represent the values of the company.

Status Labs’ employees have chosen to demonstrate their commitment to the Austin community by regularly volunteering as a company at Austin nonprofits. The first volunteer outing will be serving members of Austin’s homeless community at Caritas on March 30th, 2015.

While no replacement for French has been named, Status Labs is currently reviewing candidates for the role.

In an open letter posted on the Status Labs website, the company’s employees stated that, “While our former CEO’s inexcusable actions were performed outside of his role at Status Labs, we would still like to extend our sincere regrets and apologies to the Lejarazu family and to our fellow Austinites. We feel that the actions taken and the insensitive comments made by Jordan were way out of line with our values and beliefs.”

We stand by our New York City-based president, Darius Fisher, who, as a passive investor in F&F Real Estate Ventures, was unaware of the extreme measures Jordan enacted in his effort to evict Jumpolin.”
