Shaddix was born in Vacaville, California. His parents divorced when he was six years old. In his youth he went to Vacaville High School where he played the clarinet in the school orchestra. Upon meeting Dave Buckner they founded Papa Roach in 1993. Jacoby started out playing drums but found quickly that Dave was a far greater drummer. Jacoby then decided to pick up bass to play a part in a band but his bass was stolen. After this he defaulted to singing. While 17, Shaddix started to work as a dishwasher to be able to finance his apartment with a friend. This job changed to a janitor in a hospital until he gave it all up for Papa Roach in 1999 so he could dedicate himself to the music he liked.
On July 16, 1996, Shaddix married his high-school sweetheart, Kelly Shaddix, by whom he has two sons, Makaile Ciello Shaddix, born March 24, 2002 and Jagger Monroe Shaddix, born September 13, 2004.
A founding member of Papa Roach, Shaddix has been the lead singer since 1993. He formed the band along with drummer Dave Buckner, bassist Will James, and trombonist Ben Luther who was shortly replaced by lead guitarist Jerry Horton. Shaddix is the only remaining original member of Papa Roach as Will James was replaced by Tobin Esperance and Dave Buckner was replaced by Tony Palermo.
Fight the Sky
Shaddix has many tattoos; one of which, reads "Here Lies Jacoby Dakota Shaddix" and at the bottom of the scroll, "Born With Nothing, Die With Everything". Another one at the top of his chest that says "BORN TO ROCK." His neck bears the Chinese character for "love", which he explained in an edition of MTV Cribs that featured his home. He also has tattoos on both of his hands. His right hand says "love", and his left hand says "hate". He and his wife also have matching star tattoos by their right eyes.
Shaddix also went by the pseudonyms Coby Dick, which he used until 2001, Jonny Vodka, and John Doe temporarily in Fight the Sky.
