Age 56, of Murrysville, formerly of Monroeville, suddenly on Saturday, January 9, 2010. Beloved husband of the Honorable Jacqueline (Ouzts) Shogan. Wonderful son of Andrew L. and the late Anne R. (Zupon) Shogan; loving father of Alyson L. Shogan, Jeffrey C. Shogan, and Jack E. Shogan; brother of Andrew W. (Jo Ann) Shogan; son-in-law of Arline G. Ouzts; brother-in-law of Carlton (Anne) Ouzts, and Dwight (Linda) Ouzts; uncle of Andrew J. (Katie) Shogan, Jonathan C. Shogan, Alex J. Shogan, and Derrick C. Ouzts. Dr. Shogan was the Director and Chief Business Officer at the UPMC Cancer Centers, and Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. He was educated as an under- graduate at Yale University. After two years with the Peace Corps in Thailand and one year with TCOM (Telecommunications subsidiary of Westinghouse) in Nigeria, he completed an internal medicine residency at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. He served as Chief Medical Resident at UPMC and went on to complete a fellowship in oncology at Duke University Medical Center. Post fellowship, he remained at Duke for one year on faculty within the Bone Marrow Transplant Program. He then returned to Pittsburgh where he founded and directed the Bone Marrow Transplant Program at Allegheny General Hospital. During this period, he co-managed a private practice group which grew to approximately 30 physicians seeing over 12,500 new patients a year. In 2000, the group merged into UPMC creating one of the largest cancer care networks in the United States. Dr. Shogan played an integral role in a radical reorganization and the growth of the UPMC Cancer Centers network along a service line model. Through a series of joint ventures, as well as the formation of new business entities, the network has expanded both nationally and internationally. He recently held several board seats, including: Chairman of the Board of D3 Radiation Planning, Chairman of the Board of Cancer Treatment Services International (CTSI), board member of UPMC Cancer Centers, Chairman of the Board for the Waterford Oncology Associates (Ireland), Board Member for Sandyford Oncology Associates (Ireland), Secretary of the Board for UPMC Ireland, and a member of the Harris Healthcare Advisory Board. Dr. Shogan published in numerous major medical journals, held various teaching positions, and remained active in clinical research. Dr. Shogan was also active in his community and was recently inducted into the Gateway Sports Hall of Fame. He also worked with refugees in camps on the Thai-Burmese border and with an orphanage in Northern Thailand. He had plans to open a charitable medical clinic in Northern Thailand and had recently visited the area to make preliminary arrangements. Most importantly, he loved his family and cherished the time he spent with them. His family plans to fulfill Jeff's dreams and asks that, in lieu of flowers, contributions be sent to Friends of Jeff Shogan c/o Thorp, Reed, & Armstrong, 301 Grant St., 14th Floor, Pittsburgh, PA 15219. Friends will be received Tuesday and Wednesday 2-4 & 7-9 PM at the JOBE FUNERAL HOME & CREMATION SERVICES INC. (Monroeville/Plum Chapel) corner of Beatty Rd. & 48 North, Monroeville, (412 856-4747).

To the family of Dr. Shogan:
I saw the wonderful memorial you erected for Dr. Shogan on the ridge below the Tengboche Monastery in Nepal. I took a picture of it so I could look him up when I returned to the states. I am so very sorry for your loss. He really touched so many lives and now his life is celebrated in the shadows of Everest, Ama Dablam and the incomparable Himalayas. A fine tribute.

Jackie, you may not remember me but Jeff trained me while at AGH from 1989-1991. I am at the BMT Meetings in Orlando and learned of Jeff passing away. I thought so much of him. You and your family will be in my prayers and thoughts. Sincerely,Joe Lynch

I was so sad to hear of Dr. Shogans passing. He was a classmate and we both graduated from Gateway Senior High in 1971. My sympathy goes to his wife and children. I am sure he will be missed by his patients.

I always believe that God chooses the best and God has proven that he does only take the best when he chose to take Dr. Shogan.

Heaven must be a better place with him in it and this World is a lesser place with out.

As a current Stage IV Breast Cancer patient of Dr. Shogan since July of 2006 I was deeply saddened to hear of his untimely passing. During my office visits, his compassion and care has always left me with a feeling that there was hope and gave me the courage and the strength to know that this battle can be conquered. As a patient of Dr. Shogan's for the last 3 1/2 years I have learned to know what a true caring Specialist means. His concern on my physical and emotional basis always came first. There was never a time that my concerns were not number 1 with his care and treatment. My most memoriable moment was when Dr. Shogan contacted me personally and congradulated me on my one year survival on June 26, 2007. His passing is a great loss to myself, and all of his other patients present and past. But the greatest loss is a loss of a Husband, Father, Son, Mentor, and Friend. My sympathies go to Mrs. Shogan and Family.

To the family of amazing Dr Jeff, I want to record my extended family's grief and gratitude. Gratitude for considering our modest Children's Home /School in northern Thailand worthy of his time and financial support in difficult times, and grief at the loss of a great friend and encourager to Thailand. He seemed larger-than-life to us, and generously offered to bring our 3 teenagers to his home, to study, after only a brief aquaintance! An astonishing man, and a profound loss to many.

I received the sorrowful news of Jeff from Debbie Gibson and Jim O'Toole. The last time I spoke with him was at our 2001 class reunion and he was so happy.
I will have a mass said for Jeff at my church St Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church Plano, Texas and I have said the rosary and Divine Mercy for him every night since I heard of his passing to our Lord.
Jeff, you and your family will be in my prayers forever.

Dear Shogan Family and Nicole,

Our father was diagnossed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in 2002. As a family, we were devasted, scared, and confused. He has been in remission now for the past 8 years due to the amazing knowledge, genuine concern, and exceptional care that was provided to him by Dr. Shogan and his staff. We are forever grateful to Dr. Shogan and extend our deepest sympathy and prayers to his entire Family, Nicole, and the Staff at Hillman. May he rest in eternal peace.
With Sympathy and Love,

Dr. Shogan displayed random acts of kindness and did not bring attention when he did. I saw him help a man in need when he thought no one was watching. I had the honer of witnessing such an event which made me respect him even more. Over his lifetime I suspect he did thousands of random acts of kindess that no one ever knew about. The world is minus one angel on earth

Dear Shogan Family

I am at a loss for words, not only have I lost my doctor but I feel like I have lost my friend. I have been a patient of Dr. Shogan's since December 2006, and he has seen me through beast cancer for 3 years, successfully I might add. Dr. Shogan was an exceptional man and doctor and I will truly miss him and our "Football" conversations and his stories he would tell me. He will be missed by so many, he is truly "Gone Too Soon". My deepest sympathy...

To the the family of Dr. Jeffrey Shogan

My husband says Dr. Shogan saved my life and I really don't believe anyone else could have done it. He cared, and backed it up with expertise. He gave us confidece from the very beginning of my diagnosis which helped tremendously with dealing with the treatments and recovery. He was my doctor at the beginning; he became a friend over the ten years I have been under his care. This is such sad news.

Our sincerest sympahties to the Shogan family.

To the Shogan family, I was a patient of Dr. Shogan's for 20 years next month and he truly was a friend. I'll never forget his calling me at home in the evening and saying,"this is Jeff Shogan". I had never had a doctor call me at night or not refer to himself as Dr. He was a genuine human being ,full of compassion. My sister Arley Duncan fondly remembers him as a student at Gateway. God Bless You, Judith Conger

Some people are on this earth for many years and accomplish little. Dr. Jeff Shogan was on this earth for a short while and touched the lives of many, here in Pittsburgh and around the world.

He saw me through breast cancer and seemed more like a friend than a doctor. His life mattered, and because of him, many like me live on.

I hope his family finds comfort in knowing that Jeff was loved by so many and his spirit will never die.

Dear Mrs. Shogan and Family,
Thirteen years ago my husband was a patient of Dr. Shogan for leukemia. My husband and I were caught up in the statistics of the survival rate and I will never forget what Dr. Shogan said to us: "You are a statistic of one." Although I lost my husband two years later I still recall those words today whenever anything trying is happening to me or my family. He was a compassionate Doctor and a true gift to humanity. I know my husband thought the world of him. My prayers are with you and your family. Sincerely, Anne Marie Ficco (Jim)

Dear Jackie and family -
My deepest sympathies to you on the loss of Jeff. He was a very special person and I have such fond memories of our friendship in high school and college. I so enjoyed catching up with him at our Gateway reunions. You must be very proud of his many accomplishments - it is obvious he left the world a better place.

Dear Shogan Family,

I was stunned and saddened to learn of Jeff's passing. I had the honor of working with Jeff at both AGH and OHA. He was my boss and mentor for 10 years. The knowledge that he imparted to me was immeasurable, and made my transition from nurse to nurse practitioner a very easy one. He entrusted me with the care of his patients and gave me an opportunity early on in my career to assist him in developing and managing an outpatient stem cell transplant program at OHA. I am forever grateful for that experience and was proud to be a part of that team. He was such a generous man and touched so many lives--everyone benefitted from being in his light. He truly was visionary, and his leadership and clinical expertise will be sorely missed by patients and colleagues alike. There will never be another like Jeff.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

Please know that our family's prayers are all we have to offer you in this time of grief... I always ask "why" but I know that's selfish...

The only thing I can guess is that somewhere in the heavens
a star must have blinked out -

and now it's been replaced with an even more brilliant one.

Let's all look for it, and as we do we'll always remember Dr. Shogan because he used his brilliance to make all of us shine!

Rest well, good doctor!

To the Shogan Family,
Our family was deeply saddened to hear of Dr. Shogan's passing. My mother has been a patient of his for over 10 years. He was always so kind, gentle, and reassuring, truly one of a kind in the medical field. What a blessing it was to have him recommended to my mother as her oncologist. He gave her excellent medical care and was an extraordinary human being for all he did for others. May God give all of you strength and comfort in the days ahead. We will remember Dr. Shogan and all whose lives he touched in our prayers.

I was a patient of Dr. Shogan's for the last 10 years and knew from the beginning that he was sent to me by God. My husband and I traveled 3 1/2 hours to Pittsburgh from our hometown in WV for my tests and treatments because Dr. Shogan was a brilliant and caring man. We always felt confidant in his plans for my treatments. We will miss his assurance and his smile. My husband and I are so sorry for your loss. May God wrap His loving arms around you and fill you with His peace!

Dear Shogan Family,

Jeff took fantastic care of my father in 2006-7 when he had pancreatic cancer. Jeff's guidance and care ensured that my father had almost no pain and helped extend his life in meaningful ways.

When he was with you,he made you feel as though you were his only patient.What a tremendous person and talent to be lost so young.In one of our conversations, he said that he would like his legacy to be, creating centers outside of Pittsburgh,that would provide the same quality care as we have at the Hillman center. My wife always felt safe in his care. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and staff.

Family of Dr. Jeffrey Shogan,

I had the great honor of meeting and falling under the care of Dr. Shogan in 1990 at the age of 18. His compassion, intelligence, sense of humor and ability to push me beyond what I thought I was capable of is what helped me survive a predicament that seemed unsurvivable. He was recommended to our family as one of the best cancer doctors and I am forever grateful to have met him.

I believe that the task and measure of our existence is the footprint we leave behind and the lasting impact we have on others long after we have departed. Dr. Shogan accomplished his task with flying colors...and in a very short period of time. His selfless gifts and his memory will continue to live on with all of those he cared for and in all that he helped create for generations to come. Thank you, Dr. Shogan.

My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

Dear Shogan Family:

There’s a hole in our hearts for the loss of a gentle giant of a man. I had the pleasure of working for Jeff for 10 years; a leader in every respect. The best boss one could ask for. He had a way of letting me know that he trusted me and my abilities. Jeff had the ability to present opportunities and encouraged success to every one he encountered and then let them fly like eagles. He impacted so many people. Dr. Shogan’s legacy of being a real human being, changing lives, and making a difference in the world will live on forever.
What a pleasure to know such a great guy and beautiful family.

Jackie - Jeff was a true gentleman with a huge capacity for kindness and caring. For those of us that knew him for a long time, we always felt that he had our back and was looking out for us all from AGH to UPMC. He was absolutely one of the best people I will ever know. He will be sorely missed by everyone who had the honor to know him. There is a chill in the air now that has nothing to do with the weather. My heartfelt sympathy to you, Aly, Jeff, Jack and Andy.

I will always consider Jeff to be more than my Oncologist. He was my hero- and my friend.
His brilliant and aggressive treatment of my cancer is the only reason I am here today writing this with a heavy heart and unsteady hand.
Your husband/father will be missed and most certainly, never forgotten.

I pray the healing Jeff freely spread to so many, find its way to his loved ones to comfort them at this most difficult time.

I was truly saddened to hear that Jeff had passed. Through my professional interactions with Jeff, I always found him to be incredibly bright, thoughtful and engaging. He was clearly very compassionate and caring as well. Jeff still had much to give and I know that he will be greatly missed.

Heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of Dr Shogan. He left this world far too early yet contributed so much to leave it a better place. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
