Jordan Cashmyer, who appeared in Season 5 of the MTV reality television series 16 and pregnant, has died. She is 26 years old.
The news has been confirmed by her family over Facebook post. “Last night I got a call that no parent wanted,” her mother, Jessica Cashmyer, wrote. “Our hearts are truly broken. No parent has to go through the loss of a child, EVER. Please keep my family in your thoughts and prayers as we get through this terrible tragedy. Please understand and respect our privacy at this time.”
The cause of death has not yet been revealed.
Jordan Cashmyer’s 16 and pregnant appeared to air in June 2014. The episode follows her and then-boyfriend Derek Taylor’s struggles with homelessness and unemployment while the couple are expecting daughter Genevieve. Her family, at the time, disapproved of the relationship and kicked her out when she refused to see him. After the birth of the girl, whom they called Evie, the family continued to experience financial stress and homelessness.
Jordan was arrested for drug possession in 2017, but celebrated one year of sobriety in January 2021.
16 and pregnant ran over and over for six seasons on MTV from 2009 to 2021. Some of the spin-off spins included Teen Mom, Teen Mom 2, Teen Mom: Young & Pregnant, Teen Mom 3, and 16 and recover.
