MTV’s Teen Mom Twitter account also acknowledged the young mother’s passing, posting:

“We are deeply saddened to learn about the passing of Jordan Cashmyer. Our hearts go out to her family and friends during this difficult time.”

During Jordan’s appearance on season five of the reality series, she struggled with unemployment and homelessness; she was kicked out because of her parents’ disapproval of her boyfriend, Derek Taylor. The couple broke up after the birth of their daughter Evie, and Jordan signed over custody rights to Derek’s mother on a temporary basis, according to Variety.

The Hollywood Reporter stated that she gave birth to a second daughter, Lyla, last year. The television personality had struggled with addiction in the past, but had recently commemorated one year of sobriety, per Variety.

This is such a sad story. We will be keeping Jordan and her loved ones in our thoughts.
