Syerra Gordon Obituary

Syerra Esther Gordon


Syerra was born to parents June (Phifer) Burgos and Darrell Gordon on August 24, 2000. She was known to all her friends and family as “CeCe.” She was loving, funny, and had the cutest infectious
smile that lit up a room. Jaylin Cherazard and Syerra adored their baby boy, Symir Cherazard, who was born on June 16, 2021. Everyone who knew Syerra knew she was an introvert, however, she prided herself in participating in the Prince Charmless production at the Ocala Civic Center Theater in 2013. Some of Syerra’s loves were taking videos and pictures. She loved turtles, butterflies, family, and of course, Jaylin.

Syerra was intelligent, funny, and kind to anyone she came into contact with. She was an international friend to many and learned several languages to keep up conversations with her friends. She was the Royal Ambassador at Trinity High School and recently started her job as a Behavior Analyst. She loved helping people.


On December 23, 2023, Syerra passed away after a car accident in Ocala, Florida. Syerra was survived by: her loving parents, Darrell and June; stepfather, Jose; brother, William; uncle,
