Jordyn was born on September 29, 1996 in Winner, SD to Kenneth and Sandra (Olson) Hespe. She had an outgoing personality and everybody who met her was her friend. She moved to Todd County High School when she was a sophomore and found her place. She was active in many things but especially loved volleyball and basketball. She graduated from Todd County High School in 2015. Jordyn was selected to represent South Dakota and play basketball on the girls Down Under Basketball Team in Brisbane, Australia. This was a dream come true for Jordyn! Her trip included the Golden Coast of Australia, Great Barrier Reef, New Zealand, and Hawaii. She fell in love with Hawaii and was amazed by seeing Pearl Harbor. She had the time of her life. She met and made many friends and loved playing basketball.
She was a fun loving girl that enjoyed being around people and helping anybody that needed help. She enjoyed spending time with her dog KIKI who was her baby. Jordyn was taken in by the wonderful people of the Rosebud Nation. She became many peoples’ granddaughter, daughter, sister, auntie, and friend. She loved and cared about everyone she met. There wasn’t anything she wouldn’t do for people. Jordyn played on the girls slow pitch softball team in Rosebud and the COED team in Winner. She lived and loved life to the fullest.
Jordyn’s pride and joy were her family, especially her nieces Bailey, and Carley as well as her nephew Payton. Her family meant the world to her as she did to her family. If she ever needed anything her sister Brooke was always there for her. Jordyn always loved her birthday because Brooke always made her favorite enchilada supper. She loved her brother Jacob and treasured the times they would go fishing and hunting together. She was looking forward to this winter because she drew an Elk tag for the Black Hills. She was so excited to shoot her own elk. She was her daddy’s little girl and her mommas’ whole world. She was not only her daughter but as she grew up she became her mother’s best friend. Jordyn loved her boyfriend Jesse. He was also her confidant and best friend. Jesse loved her very much.
Our “Princess” will be greatly missed by all.
