No words can describe the loss we all shared when Jordan was taken from us on August 13th. She was greeted into Heaven by her grandfather and Hammer, her pet cat. Our beautiful baby girl and cherished friend to so many will be missed so, so much. Those who knew Jordan would describe her as a compassionate, talented, very intelligent, spirited athlete who lived life to the fullest and had a work ethic way beyond her very short 19 years of life on this earth. Jordan was born January 14, 1997. She had the dream of one day becoming a neurologist and working with children. Everyone who knew Jordan feels she would have changed the world. Jordan is survived by her mother, father, two sisters, two nieces, two grandmothers and one grandfather, as well as numerous relatives, mentors, friends and a soulmate.
Jordan's body will be laid to rest at 11 a.m. Saturday, August 20. The memorial service will be held at the New Covenant United Methodist Church of Edmond, 2700 South Blvd., under the direction of Matthews Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you give to a trust that has been set up in Jordan's name. The trust will be used to create a scholarship foundation to assist medical students in their final years of education. Donations can be given at any Bank of Oklahoma, mention that the donation is for the Jordan DeShazer Memorial Fund.
