Jordan Cashmyer Age
She was 26 year old.
Jordan, his boyfriend Derek Taylor, and his daughter Evie appeared on MTV’s 16 & Pregnant in 2014.
The heartbreaking story of the young parents unfolded on the show as they were homeless as Jordan prepared to give birth.
Her family did not approve of her relationship with Derek, leading them to essentially disown the pregnant teen.
While the couple didn’t continue to tell their story in one of the franchise’s spin-offs, they continued to fight while raising their daughter.
Jordan and Derek broke up after their appearance on 16 & Pregnant, while failing to properly care for their young daughter.
Jordan’s father and stepmother stepped in and temporarily shared custody of her granddaughter.
Then, in 2015, Jordan finally relinquished custody rights over her to Derek’s mom.
According to TMZ, she was struggling with mental health issues, addiction, and suicidal thoughts at the time.
Jordan then dealt with legal issues while working at a strip club and was arrested for drug possession in 2017.
A SOBER YEAR
However, Jordan seemed to be working on her health and she celebrated a year sober in January 2021 after years of battling addiction.
She shared the news in a Facebook post, which revealed that a party was being thrown to celebrate her achievement.
Alongside an event page inviting others to the celebration, Jordan wrote, “My wonderful homegroup member made this amazing announcement for Friday, so for anyone who isn’t part of the Right alumni page Turn, here is my anniversary information.”
ANOTHER TRAGIC DEATH
Jordan’s passing comes years after 16 & Pregnant alum Valerie Fairman died in 2016.
The former reality star was found “unresponsive” in the bathroom of a friend’s house she was visiting in Pennsylvania, while she was later pronounced dead.
At the time, it was claimed that Valerie’s death was due to an overdose.
Her devastated mother, Janice Fairman, revealed that Valerie had checked into rehab five times over the years, but she always backed off.
The mother of the stars added that Valerie’s last stage of rehab was just a few months before her death after serving time in prison for violating her probation.
