Shaun "Sweet Cheeks" William Cooper was born November 12, 1980 in Baldwin, New York. Like his band mates, John Nolan and Michelle DaRosa, he attended Baldwin Senior High School, graduating in 1999. He is the current bass guitar player for Taking Back Sunday. In 2003 Cooper proposed that he and John Nolan leave Taking Back Sunday due to irreconcilable differences. Cooper was then replaced by Matt Rubano. Cooper maintained a close friendship with Mark O'Connell of Taking Back Sunday. On March 29, 2010 Shaun rejoined Taking Back Sunday.

He mainly plays Fender jazz and precision bass guitars.
