September 6, 2017 | 01:34PM PT

Award-winning documentary filmmaker Jeffrey Tuchman died on Sept. 2 at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles after a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 62.

Tuchman was a writer, director, and producer whose work includes “Voices of Civil Rights,” an oral history of the Civil Rights movement for which he won an Emmy and a Peabody award; “Mavericks, Miracles,and Medicine,” an award-winning four-part series on the history of medicine; and “The Man From Hope,” the Bill Clinton documentary featured at the 1992 Democratic Convention that won Tuchman a Pollie Award. Tuchman also directed many of Hillary Clinton’s campaign ads.

He worked on over 30 documentaries throughout his career and had credits on networks including A&E, PBS, History, NHK, ABC, Discovery/TLC, Court TV, CBS, MSNBC, and HBO. Before his death, Tuchman was working on a documentary about his father, Marcel Tuchman, who was one of the Siemens “slaves,” went to Germany after the war to get his medical degree, and recently retired as a professor of medicine at NYU medical school.



Tuchman also served as a consultant to nonprofit organizations and taught documentary filmmaking at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.
He is survived by his father, his younger brother Peter Tuchman, his sister-in-law Lisa Zumwalt, his nephew and niece Ben and Lucy Tuchman, and his girlfriend Jackie Tepper.
