Prior to retiring from basketball altogether, Jeff Sheppard struggled with deciding when to call it quits. While playing in Italy, the tragic events of September 11 occurred and Sheppard felt that it was time for him to leave the game and go back home to the States. When Sheppard returned, he went back to his old collegiate stomping grounds where he settled down with former Kentucky women's basketball player, Stacey Reed. Nowadays, he owns an apparel line called 15inc and serves as the vice president for business development with Wazoo Sports, a sports TV network which focuses on sports throughout the state of Kentucky.
