16 And Pregnant alum Jordan Cashmyer, who appeared on season 5 of the reality television show, has passed away aged 26, her father and stepmother, Dennis and Jessica, announced via Facebook yesterday. Who are Jordan Cashmyer’s parents?

Who are Jordan Cashmyer’s parents?

Jordan Cashmyer’s father, with whom she went to live when she was ten years old, is Dennis Cashmyer Jr. He confirmed his daughter’s passing in a Facebook post on Sunday, 16 January 2022.

In the post, he wrote he and his wife Jessica Cashmyer – Jordan’s stepmother – were “surrounded by the love and support of our children, granddaughter Lyla and family members”.

Dennis runs Cashmyer Management Company. He and Jessica recently celebrated their 18th wedding anniversary. He marked the occasion with a social media post on 17 November 2021.

Jessica Cashmyer is Jordan’s stepmother. She and Dennis shared custody of Jordan’s first daughter, Genevieve, with Derek, the father, following the filming of Jordan’s appearance on 16 And Pregnant.

What about her biological mother?

According to a Radar Online exclusive in August 2017, Jordan Cashmyer’s biological mother is Kari Burchill. 

Radar wrote in 2017 that Burchill had reached out to the outlet in a “desperate plea”.

“I hadn’t heard from her or seen her in a week,” the outlet quotes her as saying. Burchill was apparently in and out of court in an effort to “regain custody of Cashmyer throughout her teens (although) she was unsuccessful”.

When she turned 18, Radar adds, Jordan Cashmyer decided to live with her biological mother again. 

“She wants to be a good mom, but she needs to find herself,” Burchill told the outlet. “Jordan is going to make it. A part of her wants to get help.”

How old are Jordan Cashmyer’s daughters Evie and Lyla?

Jordan Cashmyer has two daughters.

She gave birth to Genevieve “Evie” Shae Taylor on 7 March 2014 but she and her daughter’s father (Derek Taylor) separated shortly after their episode of 16 And Pregnant aired on MTV, as reported by Distractify.

In January 2021, Jordan celebrated one year of sobriety. She gave birth to her second daughter, Lyla – whose father was Jordan’s fiancé, Michael Schaffer – the following June. Shaffer sadly passed away, age 30, in September last year.

Jordan’s daughters, Evie and Lyla, are seven years old and seven months old respectively.

We send our condolences to the family and friends of Jordan Cashmyer.
