Jordan Leon DeShields

November 20, 2001 ~ May 8, 2018 (age 16)

JORDAN LEON DESHIELDS was born on November 20, 2001 to Gary A. Deshields II and Nichole Johns-Deshields in Baltimore, MD. He was the second child of four children. Jordan suddenly departed this life on May 8, 2018.

Jordan was educated in the Baltimore City Public School System, where he thrived and was often a Center for Talented Youth eligible student. Jordan loved writing songs, skating at Shake-N-Bake and smiling, while spending time with his family and friends. He had a smile as bright as the sun. Jordan had a love for outdoors, peppermint candy and life. He was truly an outside baby from the age of two. At the age of twelve, Jordan was affectionately called "Streetz" by his friends. Jordan held his first job in the summer of 2017, working for Shake-N-Bake.  

Jordan was strong minded, strong willed and had the ability to charm the soul out of anyone. Jordan was also passionate about playing basketball and rapping. He had a way with words, whether he chose to rock the mic or articulate himself in the court room.  Jordan would have excelled in any area or arena.
