He was born May 15, 1981, in Euclid.
Shaun attended General McLane High School and went on to graduate from Union City High School in 1999. Throughout school, he was involved in wrestling and was an all-conference football player.
Mr. Eshelman was the successful business owner of Eshelman Equipment, Mastiff Metals and St. Bernard Trailers.
Shaun was very hardworking, goal-oriented, dedicated, and had a sarcastic sense of humor. Shaun had a big influence on the community, always tried to help others and was loved by many people. He was a lifelong fan of all Cleveland sports teams, played co-ed softball in Eastlake and Mentor, and participated in a bowling league. He also sponsored local softball team, Wizards Fastpitch. He enjoyed going to country concerts, gambling at the casinos (and winning), four- wheeling, playing pool, eating the hottest wings possible, attending trivia nights on Fridays at Quaker Steak and loved Rhino, his St. Bernard, dearly.
