Jordan was born to Melinda and Damon Farmar, who divorced when he was only two years old, before he discovered his interest in basketball. After attending Portola Middle School, Jordan enrolled at Birmingham High School but in his second year transferred to Taft High School. During his high school basketball career, Jordan dramatically improved his skills, scoring over 2,000 points in under two years, and was honored with several accolades such as California Interscholastic Federation Los Angeles City Section High School Player of the Year as well as Los Angeles Times Player of the Year.

After matriculating from high school, Farmar enrolled at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), where he continued his streak of great performances, finishing his college career by adding All-Pac-10 First Team honors to his portfolio. Jordan Farmar turned pro when he was drafted as the pick No. 26 overall in the 2006 NBA Draft by the Los Angeles Lakers. This engagement marked the beginning of his professional basketball career, and also provided the basis for Farmar’s current net worth.

During his five-seasons-long stay with the Lakers, Farmar won two NBA Championship titles in a row – in 2009 against Orlando Magic as well as in 2010 when the Lakers beat the Boston Celtics. Jordan then signed a three-year contract with New Jersey Nets, worth $12 million, however, in 2011 Farmar moved out of the NBA and signed a one-year deal with the Israeli Basketball Super League’s Maccabi Tel Aviv. In 2012, after spending only five (yes, five!) days with NBA’s Atlanta Hawks, Farmar transferred to the Turkish League’s Anadolu Efes, with which he signed a three-year playing contract worth $15 million. It is certain that all these ventures helped Jordan Farmar to add a significant sum to the total of his wealth.

After playing 29 games for Anadolu Efes, Farmar returned to the NBA for the season 2013 when he signed with the Lakers again. After spending one season with the franchise, Farmar transferred to the Los Angeles Clippers, but after playing 36 games and not managing to quite fit in with the team, Jordan left the NBA again, relocating to Turkey again and signing with Darüşşafaka for the 2015 season. Doubtlessly, all these achievements made an impact on Jordan Farmar’s net worth.

After one season in Turkey, he moved back to Maccabi Tel Aviv in July 2015, but after only six months he left the club, relocating to the states and joining the Memphis Grizzlies, signing a ten-day contract with the franchise; since September 2016, Jordan Farmar has been playing for the Sacramento Kings. These involvements have certainly boosted the total of Farmar’s revenues.

When it comes to his personal life, Farmar has been married since 2012 to former soccer player Jill Oakes. In 2009 he appeared in one episode of CBS crime drama TV series “Numb3rs”. Apart from his professional career, Farmar is a philanthropist and has been regularly involved in several charity events, such as Chabad Telethon fundraising program, and is also a founder of the annual charity golf tournament Jordan Farmar Celebrity Golf Classic.
