16 & PREGNANT GoFundMe for Jordan Cashmyer’s daughter and funeral started by her dad

16 and Pregnant Jordan Cashmyer GoFundMe for her funeral and orphaned daughter Lyla

16 and Pregnant mom Jordan Cashmyer passed away on January 15, just months after the father of her six-month-old daughter Lyla died in September. Jordan’s dad, Dennis Cashmyer, has since organized a GoFundMe campaign in hopes of raising money to “cover the costs of Jordan’s memorial and start a fund for [her daughter] Lyla’s future.”

“I am asking for the community that has surrounded myself, Jordan and my family to help us through this horrific chapter in our lives,” Dennis wrote on Facebook to announce the fundraising campaign. “Please if you are able to help, we would forever be grateful. If you are unable to donate, I would ask of you just to share this and how Jordan, Lyla, or myself have touched your individual lives, I would greatly appreciate it.”

Dennis then reveals that their anguish has been amplified due to the fact that they still hadn’t been able to claim Jordan’s body.

“We are navigating uncharted territory, and each step has been extremely challenging and painful,” he wrote. “Our daughter is still being held at the State Medical Examiners. It’s been nine days now, so we have not been able to finalize her final resting, and let her go In peace. We pray that we soon will be able to do so and finally properly mourn the loss of our daughter Jordan Cashmyer. Rest In Peace my baby girl.”

Dennis also shared a link to Jordan’s obituary. Here it is in full:

Jordans Final Arrangements & Lylas Future Care

Our daughter Jordan tragically lost her life on January 15, 2022, at the age of 26. Leaving behind a sweet little 6-month-old girl.
Addiction plagues many families, and our family was not immune to it.
Jordan was always so full of life and full of personality. She had a way of always making those around her laugh and smile, and her smile was truly contagious. Our family is heartbroken, and we will forever miss Jordan.
We are now faced with the grim outcome that our grandaughter that we have been raising will never get to make memories with her mother or father, never getting to know them. Lyla lost her father to addiction at two months & now her mother at six months. Our family has to now not only put our daughter to rest but navigate through starting over with an infant who has lost both her parents in her six months of life.
Please help our family cover the costs of Jordan’s memorial and start a fund for Lyla’s future. We did not foresee starting back over, and all that comes along with that. Lyla has been our family’s greatest joy and addition; she has been our saving grace during this difficult time.
Myself, my wife, our kids, and sweet little Lyla have been shown so much love and words of kindness in the past nine days since Jordan’s passing. Our hearts are grateful. We pray Jordan is finally at peace.
Lots of Love, The Cashmyers.
