Jackie Blane Shaw, age 76, was called home to the Lord on January 6, 2021. He was a loving husband, father, and grandfather. Jackie is survived by his wife of 42 years, Charlotte; his five children, Lauren (Grayson) of Alpharetta, Ga., Julie (Patrick) of Johns Creek, Ga., Elexa (Mike) of Marietta, Ga., Jason (Jenny) of Franklin, Tenn., and Jake (Kylie) of Melbourne, Fla.; and ten grandchildren, Bella, Sophia, Anya, Graham, Morgan, Blake, Alexa, Taylor, Sadie, and Ansley. He is survived by his sisters, Polly Murphy, Linda Newsom and Gigi Mills.
Jackie was born in Memphis, Tenn. on August 30, 1944, to Jack and Mary Shaw and was a lifelong Memphian until he and Charlotte moved to Melbourne, Fla. in 2017 to be closer to family. He attended Whitehaven High School, Delta State and University of Memphis before he joined the US Marine Corps Reserve (1963 - 1969). After completing his military service, Jackie founded and operated Diversified Insurance Agency in Memphis for 43 years. He regularly attended Faith Baptist Church in Bartlett, Tenn. and Church at Viera in Viera, Fla.
A friend to many, Jackie was a kind and selfless man, tenderhearted and protective, full of wit and humor that made everyone laugh. Throughout his life he kept his eyes on Jesus, his Savior.
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4:7
