Obituary

Obituary for John F. "Jack" Shine

John F. “Jack” Shine, 89, of Wall, NJ, died Tuesday, December 24, 2019 at home. Born in Newark, NJ, Jack lived in Maplewood before moving to Wall 17 years ago. Jack was a proud alumnus of both Seton Hall Prep and University, and earned his MBA from Rutgers University. Jack served in the US Army during the Korean War. He worked as a Sales Executive with Liberty Mutual Insurance. He was an avid reader and had a great sense of humor. Jack attended Our Lady of Sorrows Church in South Orange, NJ, where he was a Eucharistic Minister and Usher, and attended Nocturnal Adoration. He was also a parishioner of St. Mark’s Church in Sea Girt. Jack was an active member of the Knights of Columbus, the American Legion, the Friendly Sons of the Shillelaghs, and the Right to Life.
Jack’s first priority in life was his family. He was a devoted husband, loving father, and caring grandfather. His hard work provided his family with an amazing life. He took great pride in the education he was able to provide for his family. One of his greatest joys was spending his vacation time with his family at their cottage in Normandy Beach, and swimming with his children and grandchildren.
Jack is survived by his devoted wife, Regina “Jeanne”; daughters Ellen Marks (Bob), Marybeth McLoughlin (Peter), and Joan Field (Randy); and son Christopher Shine (Suzy Happ). He also leaves 10 grandchildren – Carrie, Annika, Kyra, Katie, Meredith, Connor, David, Emily, Gabriel, and Julia; niece Suzanne and nephews Arthur and Kenneth; and his excellent caregiver, Nina.
Viewing at O’Brien Funeral Home in Wall, on Thursday, January 2, 2020 from 3-7pm. Funeral Mass at St. Mark’s Church in Sea Girt, on Friday at 9:30am with burial to follow at St. Anne Cemetery in Wall.
