Shane Michael Jacobs

Shane Michael Jacobs was born on May 2, 1973 in Elizabethtown, NC. The middle son of Rodney and Christine Jacobs.

From an early age he developed a love for horses, his favorite being “Dan the Man”.  Shane was a proud member of the Waccamaw Siouan tribe.  He participated in every parade and attended every Powwow, health permitting.

Shane married the love of his life Tina Woodcock on February 11, 2006.  From that moment on he gained two sons and a daughter.  Shane leaves to cherish in his memories his wife Tina Jacobs; sons: Steven/Megan of Leland NC and Jay Jay/Nora of Riegelwood NC; daughter Hayley/Enrique of Leland NC; six grandchildren; mother, Christine Jacobs of Leland, NC; sister: Margaret Jacobs of Bolton NC; three brothers: Roy/Sylvia of Hampstead NC, Ronald/Star of Leland NC and Devon Jacobs of Bolton NC; grandfather: Walter Miles, also a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.  He is preceded in death by his father Rodney (Roho) Jacobs, sister Elizabeth (Liz) Jacobs; grandmothers, Pauline Miles and Evelyn Freeman Jacobs; grandfather Dock Owen Jacobs.

Everyone that met Shane Michael encountered his boisterous laughter and smile that could brighten a room. The love that radiated from such a caring person will remain in our hearts forever.
