Cordes was born and raised a Sun Devil! Ask his father, he was inconsolable after witnessing the 1997 Rose Bowl loss to Ohio State. He is a 2004 graduate of Arizona State University where he earned a degree in Business and Communications. Most recently, he drove development at both the Banner Health Foundation and Valley of the Sun United Way.
Cordes enjoys spending time with his wife Colleen, their twin boys, and their daughter. A native and fifth generation Arizonan, he also enjoys tennis, golf, fly-fishing, and exploring the outdoors. Go Devils!
