### Answer

Justin, 29Jeff, 30

Jordan, 31

Clue 1: If this is true, so is clue 4. Therefore, it is false and Justin is not 30.

Clue 2: If this is true, so is clue 5. Therefore, it is false and Jordan is not 29.

Clue 3: This clue is true

Clue 4: If this is true, so is clue 1. Therefore, it is false.

Clue 5: If this is true, Justin would have to be 31, because we have already determined from clue # 1 that he is not 30, and clue 7 would also be true. Therefore, it is false.

Clue 6: If this is true, Jordan would be 30 and clue # 8 would also be true. Therefore it is false.
