Shane Andrew Henry Jackson

October 06, 1996 - August 11, 2018

Shane Andrew Henry Jackson, 21, Kokomo, passed away Saturday, Aug. 11, 2018. Shane was born Oct. 6, 1996, in Kokomo to Lindsay Rene Miller.
Shane was a 2014 graduate of Western High School. He enlisted into the United States Marine Corps that following February. Shane was an avid game player, whether it be board games, video games or card games. He loved walking barefoot through the woods with his dog, Isabelle, and his sisters. Camping, hiking, hanging out and causing mischief with his closest friends, Michael and Kenny, were among his favorite things to do. Although he was known to be the class clown, he was extremely intelligent, witty, strong willed and loved to debate anything and everything. Shane had the oddest sense of humor and told complicated jokes that made you think, "Huh"?!
Shane is survived by his mother, Lindsay; the man he called dad, Travis; sisters, Olyvia, Jessika, Heather, Brooke, Kaitlin, Hanna, Kinser, and Elizabeth; brother, Larry; aunt, Kathy Fields, who helped raise Shane; grandma, Katie Burnett; and several aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Those who have preceded him in death are his great-grandparents, Paul W. and Barbara Jean Fields, and they also helped raise Shane to become the great man that he was; and his great-great-grandma, Dorothy Louise Murphy, who always told him he should become a politician.
A celebration of life for Shane will be at 10 a.m. Friday, Aug. 17, 2018, at Ellers Mortuary, Webster Street Chapel, with Pastor John Clark officiating. Friends and family will gather the night before between 4 and 8 p.m. at the mortuary. Burial will take place at Sunset Memory Garden Cemetery following the service Friday.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you contribute to The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at for the Jackson family.

Shane was quite a character from the stories his Aunt Kathy would tell. Highly intelligent and had the highest respect for his grandparents and aunt. Kathy, you and your parents did an excellent job of raising Shane and those who know you realize that you all did. My heart breaks for you as I know you were quite close, especially during the years that he lived with you after his grandparents passed away. You were there every step of the way. I applaud you my friend . Shane's kindness, manners and his character as a great person were taught by you three. You did more for him than anyone could imagine.
Peace to you my friend. Love, Susan
