March 28, 1951 – April 4, 2018
Jeff Shulman, owner of Tom’s Uniforms in Alhambra, died on April 4. He was born on March 28, 1951, in Boston.
Tom’s is a family business that started in 1954 by Jeff’s father, Tom Shulman, and sold suits and custom high-end clothing. The store switched to just selling uniforms 30 years later. When Tom retired, he passed the business on to Jeff.
Jeff helped serve L.A. county’s firefighters and police officers. He made sure he gave the best service, including for those just starting out at the academy all the way until they became chiefs and high ranking officials.
“We have been tailoring postal and fire and police uniforms since 1980,” said nephew Colin Beasley. “I started working here a few years ago alongside my uncle, and I am impressed how highly respected he was in the community. I honor my uncle, who helped so many important people throughout L.A. County.”
Jeff enjoyed singing with the cantor at his Jewish temple.
He is survived by his mother, Alice Shulman; wife, Rivi Shulman; children, Yael (Richard) Nygren and Seth Shulman; siblings, Randy (Mona) Shulman, Phyllis Shulman (Seth Ellner); grandchildren Ariella and Michael Nygren; nephews, Colin Beasley, Adam Ellner, Shaun Lichter; and nieces, Sharon Beasley, Laura Lichter, Jeannine Feltman, and Heather Lichter.
Jeff was predeceased by his father Tom Shulman and his sister Marilyn Beasley.
A funeral service took place April 12 at Eden Memorial Park in Mission Hills.
