Ting Shen

Ting Shen, a resident of Palo Alto, passed away peacefully on May 14, 2020, at the age of 44. Ting was a loving and dedicated mother and wife. During her fierce two-year struggle with cancer, Ting never wavered in her optimism and demonstrated ironclad bravery and resolve during her intensive treatment.

Ting’s career was filled with remarkable accomplishments; she forged a path from humble beginnings to Tsinghua University in Beijing, China for her undergraduate education, to earning her masters and Ph.D. degrees from Stanford University. After graduating, she was offered a position at McKinsey & Co., where she launched her successful career in the business world. More recently, Ting has also been an entrepreneur and active investor. Outside of work, Ting loved running, having been an accomplished varsity athlete herself.

Ting is survived by her husband, Xiaojing Zhang; son, Michael Zhang; and daughter, Lauren Zhang. During her all-too-short time in this world, Ting has blessed us with endless joy. She is bright, loving, and gracious, and we miss her greatly.

The memorial and funeral services will be on May 22nd, Friday, 2020 starting 1pm PDT at Alta Mesa Memorial Park, Palo Alto, California.
