Mr. Schexnider died Saturday, June 1, 2019 in Jackson, Ohio.

He was a lifelong resident of Lake Arthur and was a pipeline inspector. Jordan absolutely adored his wife and three children and if you ever found yourself in his presence, surely you witnessed him telling you how proud he was of one or all of his “kiddos.” Waking them up with a British accent for the sole purpose of seeing a smile on their faces first thing in the morning, Jordan often mimicked other accents for many people he loved because it was sure to make them laugh. He loved making us laugh and was never too proud to even laugh at himself. Yes ma’am, no ma’am, please and thank you - he was extremely polite with a gentle nature. Those manners filtered over into the workplace, too. As a general inspector for TC Energy, Jordan went above and beyond what was asked of him and continuously asked lots of questions and offered his services on special projects to learn more and leverage his skills professionally. In his spare time, you’d likely find him tinkering with vehicles in some fashion or another; a love, we’re sure, that came from countless hours hanging around with his dad at the shop during his teenage years.

He is survived by his wife, Ashley Melancon Schexnider of Lake Arthur; his parents, Jonathan (Ramona) Schexnider of Lake Arthur and Nicole Bonin of Lake Arthur; two daughters, McKinsey and Alayna Schexnider and one son, Kaysen Schexnider, all of Lake Arthur; paternal grandparents, Ludrick and Thelma Schexnider; maternal grandmother, Madeline Bonin; his in-laws, Raedonna and Keith Melancon; sisters, Alix, Claire, Cayna, Olivia and Julieonna; brothers, Corey, Nicholas, Coi and Daniel; Godparents, Tina Nowacin and Eric Gagneaux; and Godchildren, Jayden Melancon and Cohen Schexnider.

Special thanks to all the individuals who took part in raising Jordan to be the fine young man that he became.

Jordan was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, “Tubby” Bonin.
