The family did not reveal Jordan's cause of death.

Jordan appeared in the MTV reality series in 2014 alongside his then-girlfriend, Derek Taylor, and their daughter, Genevieve "Evie" Shae Taylor.

Jordan's episode followed her as she struggled with unemployment, homelessness and being denied by her family after she pursued a relationship with Taylor that her parents did not approve of.

Her personal life continued to revolt outside the camera when she had to sign the temporary custody of Evie to Taylor's mother in 2015. Jordan was arrested for possession of drugs two years later, Deadline reported.

Before her sudden death, Jordan turned her life around when she had recently celebrated a year of sobriety.

"This is an incredibly sad day. Jordan was a sweet and caring person," Jordan's representative told E! News. "Last time we spoke, she was fine and looked like a good place both mentally and physically. I wish "that people had the opportunity to know her beyond her struggles. I have always been rooted in her and am grateful that I had the chance to know and work with her all these years."

He added: "Life was not always kind to her, so now she is able to be at peace."
