SSRS sorting or SQL order by a column by another column value

Last Modified: 2016-02-25
i am looking to filter data on 2 columns but one column sort would be based on another columns value.

For example, i want to filter by Severity ASC, then by lastname but want these results not alphabetical but by the values of hours worked in another column.  So the first lastname to appear would be the one that has worked the most hours.
