Shaugn Mitrovich, with daughter Sophia

Dushan “Shaughn” Guthrie Mitrovich

April 1, 1973 – March 13, 2021

Dushan “Shaughn” Guthrie  Mitrovich, 47, peacefully died on March 13, 2021 in Kīhei, Maui. He was born on April 1, 1973 in Escondido, CA to parents Linda and John Mitrovich.

In 2008, Shaughn moved to Maui, which became his home to his final day. 

Shaughn loved the Maui lifestyle and cherished the many friends he made on Island.  He had a passion for technology and worked in that field for most of his time on Maui. Shaughn had a great sense of humor, quick wit and always welcomed a good verbal sparring session!

However, the greatest joy in his life came from the birth of his daughter Sophia.  She brought out a more serious, caring and nurturing side of Shaughn. Shaughn faced many health battles over the years, but his love for Sophia kept him battling to get well. After a very difficult 2020, it seemed Shaughn had turned the corner and was on a healthy path forward.  He sent me this email at the beginning of the year.


“I am so stoked on Life. My Life as pivoted to Joy from the hectic and sickening mania of May 2020.  I focus on my little peanut, the Soph…”

Unfortunately, his body was too tired to keep going but the love he has for Sophia, his family and friends lives on.  Shaughn is survived and so very missed by his daughter Sophia Jewell; her mother Muteh; his brother Milan; his parents John and Linda; and the Mitrovich family members and friends throughout the world. 

Psalm 121:  I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. It was Shaughn’s favorite Psalm, which he read at age 11 at his grandmother’s memorial service

A Celebration of Life will be scheduled in June with family and friends.
