Dashawn McCormick was born on August 17, 2007. His mother, Jasmine McCormick left Dashawn’s father, Floyd Leroy Lee, in March of 2012 when Dashawn was 4 years old. Lee had full custody of Dashawn at the time his mother left, and therefore she was only able to take her other three children with her when she moved to Alabama.
