The father of Jake Shields has passed away. It was learned that he died peacefully as he slept. Jack Shields was instrumental in his son’s MMA career. He taught Jake the values of hard work and perseverance. He was always there and was a fervent supporter through Jake’s early years in wrestling and when Jake transcended to MMA.

Jack would often make the long drive from his home to watch Jake practice and was always at Jake’s fights. He was part of our team and we will miss him.

“lost my father manager and one of my best friends today!! R.I.P jack you will be greatly missed and loved by many” – Jake Shields

Having just lost my dad 2 weeks ago, I know how hard it is to do basic stuff. I hope Jake gets through this a stronger person.

Sorry to hear about your dad Proph, losing someone is terrible. I couldnt even relate to that.
Hope Shields gets through this, has to be tough.

His dad was a huge part of his life, inside and outside the cage. It was obvious how close they were in the weeks leading up to his fight with St. Pierre. Hope he rests in peace.
