He was born at Greenup on January 27, 1938, a son of the late John and Carrie Wolfe Jamison.

He was retired from CSX Railroad with 30 years of service and was a lifelong farmer. He enjoyed farming and working with his cattle. His cattle were his babies. It made his day when neighbors and friends stopped by to talk. Shannon loved to talk and always had a story to tell and a smile to go with it. He was always happy and made you happy to be with him.

He was a Dad and Papaw to so many. His most precious moments were playing with five grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. He enjoyed hunting and fishing with them but most of all he loved to spoil them.
