The purpose of this paper is to investigate identities with Jordan *-derivations in semiprime *-rings. Let ℛ be a 2-torsion free semiprime *-ring. In this paper it has been shown that, if *ℛ* admits an additive mapping *D* : *ℛ→ℛ*satisfying either *D*(*xyx*) = *D*(*xy*)*x ^{*}*+

for all *A*∈*𝒜*(*ℋ*). Then *D* is of the form *D*(*A*) = *AB−BA** for all *A*∈*𝒜*(*ℋ*) and some fixed *B* ∈ *ℬ*(*ℋ*), which means that *D* is Jordan ***-derivation.
