Jeff Shiffrin Cause of Death
Jeff Shiffrin died at age 65 on Feb. 2, 2020, in an accident at the family home in Colorado. A fund established in his memory provides financial support to U.S. Ski & Snowboard athletes. He was an anesthesiologist who leaned on his background in clinical science to help Mikaela develop original training and workout methods.
Who Was Jeff Shiffrin?
Eileen is the skiing expert who travels the World Cup circuit — parent, coach, adviser, and, as she put it, “shoulder to cry on and vent.” Shiffrin describes her sport as “a family thing,” something her parents loved and wanted to share with Mikaela and her older brother, Taylor, who competed for the University of Denver.
