I have experienced this before but the light was steady. Now it is blinking and the Jeep was shaking. I know I need a new starter, could this be the cause or something additional?

The check engine light blinking signifies a major failure, stop driving this vehicle until you get it properly diagnosed and repaired. A failing starter motor will not trip the check engine light nor will it make it flash.
