The 29-year-old man with an "infectious smile" and "heart of gold" died in a car crash on Saturday.

"My chest feels heavy and my heart feels broken," Ms Ginns wrote in a tribute to Jordan on Sunday.

"Walking through the front door last night to receive the horrible news that you were gone.

"I still refuse to believe this is true."

The Ranger caught on fire and Mr Swift died at the scene.

Ms Ginns said the impact Mr Swift had on those around him was clear when his friends and family spent Sunday night around a fire, reminiscing on their favourite memories.

"You have a heart of gold," Ms Ginns said.

"I feel so privileged you moved in when you did, you made everyday that little better."

"You loved everyone with your whole heart the world has lost the most amazing human.

"You sure lived your life to the fullest."

The Forensic Crash Unit is investigating.
