Indian Time - A Voice from the Eastern Door



AKWESASNE – Jordan E. Reese "Aténha", 15, of Helena Road, sadly and unexpectedly passed away late Saturday evening, August 7, 2021 in the emergency room at Samaritan Medical Center.

Jordan was born on January 12, 2006 in Syracuse, the daughter of Pamela Ann Pierce and Scott Robert Reese. She was currently a high honor student at Salmon River Central School, where she was an excelling athlete in 3 sports – lacrosse, basketball, soccer and also played volleyball. Her exceptional skills in both the classroom and field awarded her a full scholarship to Northfield – Mount Hermon Prep School, where she was going to be attending in the fall. This school was the first step of Jordan's education process to become a pediatric cardiologist, so she could one day help others like the physician's that helped her. Jordan was the typical teenager who loved dancing, singing, Tic Tok, and was continuously working out to improve her skills.
