removing 6ft sliding door

My son wants to remove the 6 ft sliding glass door which leads onto his 2 nd story deck and frame it in and build a ground level deck ( after removing the 8 ft tall deck) . can this be done safely ?after removing the door we will nail in the wall , will the header need to have jacks in place to hold it up after removing the door? thanks

The 6 ft patio door currently has a header over it, and jack studs supporting it. Once the door is removed, all you need to do is frame it in.
