Jordan Cashmyer, who became known on the reality show ‘Pregnant at 16’, has died at the age of 26. It was her mother who confirmed the news through a message she posted on the girl’s father’s Facebook account.
“Last night I got a call that no parent would want. My beloved oldest daughter, Jordan, passed away, she was only 26 years old. Our hearts are truly broken. No parent should have to go through the loss of a child, EVER,” he begins.
“Please keep my family in your thoughts and prayers as we navigate this terrible tragedy. Please understand and respect our privacy at this time. We are surrounded by the love and support of our children, granddaughter Lyla, and members of the family. Jessica Cashmyer,” she writes.
Additionally, the Maryland Department of Health Medical Examiner’s office confirmed Jordan’s death to ‘E! News’ on January 16, although the cause of death has not been confirmed.
The medium has also collected the reaction of a representative who had Jordan Cashmyer who says: “It is an incredibly sad day. Jordan was a sweet and loving person. The last time we spoke, she was fine and seemed to be in a good place mentally and physically. I wish people had the chance to get to know her beyond her struggles. I was always supportive of her and am grateful I had the chance to know her and work with her all these years. Life wasn’t always kind to her, so now You can be at peace.”
It was in 2014 when Jordan rose to fame after appearing on the MTV reality show ‘Pregnant at 16’ where she showed her relationship with her then-boyfriend Derek Taylor and her daughter Genevieve “Evie” Shae Taylor.
The reality show reflected the complicated situation of Jordan at that time, who had to face the rejection of his parents for not approving the relationship with his boyfriend. Thus, the young woman had to fight against unemployment and homelessness.
Shortly after his daughter Jordan was born, he relinquished custody to Derek’s mother. In addition, the young woman’s problems would continue after the reality show as Cashmyer was arrested for drug possession. But, despite the problems he had with alcohol and drugs, it seems that Cashmyer managed to lead his life and, according to ‘Variety’, he celebrated a year of sobriety in 2021.
