OBITUARY: Shannon Jacobs


Shannon Jacobs, born on April 7, 1970, in Shelbyville, Tennessee, passed away unexpectedly on May 19, 2024.

Raised by Arthur and Patricia Holland, Shannon developed a deep love for the outdoors, spending his time hunting, fishing, camping, and engaging in carpentry. He also enjoyed playing softball and was known for his skills as a left-handed pitcher in baseball.

Shannon’s memory will also be treasured by the loving mother of his children, Kelley Jacobs; his sisters, Shelly and Sheila Holland; and his uncle, Jerry Wayne Beard, and his family.

He is reunited with his grandson: Kennon Anderson.

Shannon’s legacy of love for nature and family will live on in the hearts of those who knew and loved him.
