The Asseff’s pride themselves on being a homegrown Hollywood family. Commissioner Asseff is married for more than 49 years to Dr. Abraham Asseff, a long-time practicing dentist on Hollywood Beach. They raised their family in the Hollywood Hills neighborhood and now reside in the Hollywood Lakes neighborhood.

The Asseff’s three grown children were all born and raised in Hollywood and attended both Nativity Catholic Church and School and St. Thomas Aquinas High School. Daughter, Andrea, now practices dentistry with her father. Their son, Michael, also lives in Hollywood in the Harbor Islands community and is a local business owner. Their oldest daughter, Shawndra Asseff Baird, lives in Sarasota and is a real estate broker.

The Asseff’s greatest joy is spending time with grandson, Michael Abraham Asseff, Jr., and four beautiful granddaughters, McKenzie, Madison, Annabella and Alessandra.
