Jeffrey Pearl Obituary
Jeffrey Pearl, MD

Jeffrey Pearl, MD 1944 – 2017 passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by his family. Jeffrey was an amazing husband, father, grandfather, brother, doctor, and friend. Jeff grew up in San Francisco and was a true San Franciscan at heart even though he settled with his family in Marin. Jeff attended Washington High School and the University of California, Berkeley and played on the golf team at both. He earned his Medical Degree from Mount Sinai School of Medicine (where he met his beloved Anne) followed by a Surgical Internship and Residency at the University of California, San Diego. Jeff brought his wife Anne and daughter Laura to Marin in 1978 to join his father Milton Pearl in private practice. They practiced together for 13 years before Jeff joined the faculty at the University of California, San Francisco. While at UCSF, Jeff was a huge advocate for Mt. Zion Hospital, making sure patient care remained superb. Jeff truly enjoyed his friends, travel, listening to music, reading and learning, and cooking. After being diagnosed with PSP in 2010, Jeff found a new community within the Parkinsons Dance Project. He never once complained about his diagnosis or related discomforts. At his core, Jeff was deeply in love with Anne and truly loved his daughter Laura, son in law David, and his grandchildren Danny and Lindsey. Jeff is survived by daughter Laura Shapiro, son in law David Shapiro, grandchildren Danny and Lindsey Shapiro, brother Louis Pearl (Jetty Swart), and sister Linda Pearl Pruzan. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations in Jeff's name be made to: Parkinson's Dance Project, c/o Marin Dance Theatre, 1 St. Vincent Drive
San Rafael, CA 94903.
