Born in Boston, Dr. John “Jeb” Reid was raised in Massachusetts and grew up skiing the Berkshire and Green Mountains of New England. After college he moved to Lake Tahoe and worked at Squaw Valley (Tahoe Palisades) for two winters in the late eighties during which time he met his wife, Nye, whom he has been with for over 35 years.
Jeb attended medical school and orthopaedic surgery residency at Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU) in Portland during which time he and Nye had two children. Following residency, he completed his sports medicine fellowship in the Southern Rockies at Taos Orthopaedic Institute (TOI).
The Reid family would ultimately call Taos, New Mexico home for more than 16 years. During his tenure at TOI, Dr. Reid would ultimately help train over 40 orthopaedic sports medicine fellows, publish extensively, and develop a feeder program for the US Ski Team physician pool. While in Taos, he and Nye raised two young skiers that raced throughout the Rocky Mountains for the Taos Ski Academy.
Nye and Jeb returned to Oregon, Ashland this time, and joined the Asante team in late summer 2020. Since his relocation Dr. Reid has continued to publish and travel with the US Ski Team. He has also assumed the role of team physician for Ashland High School and Southern Oregon University following the retirement of Dr. Hal “Scooter” Townsend. Over the past 3 winters the Reids have enjoyed skiing in the Siskiyous and becoming part of the Mt. Ashland alpine community.
