Abstract: Let $ J$ be a Jordan ring with involution $ \ast $ in which $ 2x = 0$ implies $ x = 0$ and in which $ 2J = J$. Let the set $ S$ of symmetric elements of $ J$ be periodic and let $ N$ be the Jacobson radical of $ J$. Then $ {N^2} = 0$ and $ J/N$ is a subdirect sum of $ \ast $-simple Jordan rings of the following types (1) a periodic field, (2) a direct sum of two simple periodic Jordan rings with exchange involution, (3) a $ 3 \times 3$ or $ 4 \times 4$ Jordan matrix algebra over a periodic field, (4) a Jordan algebra of a nondegenerate symmetric bilinear form on a vector space over a periodic field.
