How to I custom sort multiple fields in SalesForce Apex

In a Salesforce Apex class how can we sort a list of custom objects by multiple fields asc or desc?  I have a need to sort based on certain conditions from within an apex trigger.  I cannot re-query the data to sort using a soql query because it hits a query limit.
 
I know half the answer to this question.  Create a wrapper class http://salesforce.stackexchange.com/questions/8370/how-to-sort-wrapper-list .  Just have to figure out how to do it for multiple fields.  Also, I’m hoping there is an easier way.

First of all I would establish your sorting rules.
Then rewrite something like this:

public class jobsWrapper implements Comparable
{
    public Integer compareTo(Object compareTo)
    {
        jobsWrapper jobsWrapper = (jobsWrapper) compareTo;
        if (job.Name == jobsWrapper.job.Name && job.Custom__c == jobsWrapper.job.Custom__c) return 0;
        if (job.Name == jobsWrapper.job.Name && job.Custom__c > jobsWrapper.job.Custom__c) return 1;
        if (job.Name == jobsWrapper.job.Name && job.Custom__c < jobsWrapper.job.Custom__c) return -1;
        if (job.Name > jobsWrapper.job.Name) return 1;
        return -1;        
    }
}
The Same as the code provided but has additional levels of Logic.
Not sure what limits you were previously hitting but this may at least give you a start.
To add further fields use the same pattern I have applied with and && logical and and further == , > , < expressions.

I hope this helps.
I can provide more if you need.
