  2. To Danielle & family,

    My/our great mate Jack, what can I say that will do him justice ? From the time we ran into one another in school right up to this past week, Jack has always been a constant. From school mate, to house mate, to groomsman at each of our weddings, to all round super star.

    Too many great stories.

    Jack I miss you already

    Love ya

  10. Jack was my first leader on the sporting field. He took the time to make sure a young kid was ok and treated me like I belonged. I have never forgotten those early years playing basketball with Jack in Wangaratta, as he helped shape my idea of what a good leader should be. I am grateful and sad at the same time, having never got to tell Jack of this influence.
    My deepest condolences and prayers go out to the Trimble family for their loss.

  11. The brave and long fought battle is over and the disease won, but Jack is the victor because he will live on forever in our memories. We had so little time with Jack, but felt we had known him forever. He lived life large. He was easy to love and feel comfortable in his presence. We will always remember his exuberance for life and his love for Dani, Kobe, and Louis. Your American family shares in your grief, but we feel ever so blessed that we had the opportunity and privilege to know and love Jack.

  14. Dear Danni Kobe and Louie,
    It was a joy to have known Jack, his positive outlook on the world was a calming influence in every setting.
    I will miss our exchange of ideas on our various home improvement projects and now there is one less member of our Shannon in law clan.
    Jack, you have left an indelible mark of courage for us to all remember.

  15. Jack gave up so much of his time helping me with basketball, just like his the rest of his family. It’s a game that continues to bring our family immense joy. I’ll never forget him for doing that. Condolences to the Trimble family. RIP.

  19. My heart breaks for you Dan, Kobe, Louis and families. I cannot imagine what you are all going through.

    I loved nothing more than when Steve, Mozza and Jack got together. They always went back to being 18 again! I can hear the giggles from the back deck. Having such a laugh and in their inner sanctum comfort zone. Such love, trust and friendship.

    Jackson you made everyone feel special.

    I will miss your cheeky smile and glorious sense of humour. Your big bear hugs. I will miss seeing Steve so happy, lighter and brighter when you were around. Such a great man. One of the best. We are going to miss you so so much. Gone way too soon. Rest In Peace our beautiful friend until we meet again.

    Lots of love Peel xox

    I have only the fondest, happiest memories of Jack – from flowergirling at your wedding, to his focussed basketball tips as a young (but terrible) player and his jovial and happy presence at all the Shannon gatherings. We am so sorry for the loss of such an amazing presence in the family and an even more important part of your family unit. We love you so much. Lots of love, Sam and Dylan <3

  22. Jacko – a quiet, committed (sometimes stubborn) and unsung family hero and friend. I will miss our memories of the good old basketball days, our DAF dealings, our swims, our garden chats and our laughing at the world. You have left behind and given me three amazing people and I will always watch over and support them for you, as will all of us. I feel blessed to have known you for such a very short time in this crazy world and you will always have a very special place in my heart. I live in hope that I will see you again in another place and time.

  23. Deepest sympathies Dani – to you and your family. It’s difficult to appreciate the pain you must feel at the loss of your life partner but the love you had for one another and memories of the good times might slowly, surely ease that pain. Thinking of you all. John and Marilyn Bennie

  28. Dear Danni, Kobe, Louie and extended family.
    We feel privileged to have known Jack. He was a fun, kind human being who always treated us so warmly.
    Our thoughts are with you all.
    Love Netta, Jim, Fergus and Ella

  29. Jack will be dearly missed and fondly remembered by everyone fortunate enough to have shared time with him. Jack always seemed to be ready with a smile and easy conversation. He lived big and loved big. I can’t pass by a bottle of Jack Daniels without recalling the look on his face when he spotted that big bottle of Jack Daniels he found at Costco so many years ago when I last saw you all in the U.S. – I don’t know why that memory has always made me laugh.
    Sending you love from deep in the heart of Texas,
