I don't have a copy of this package installed, but I did take a quick
look through
http://ftp.math.purdue.edu/mirrors/ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/shortlst/shortlst.dtx.
Shortenumerate seems to built on top of a standard \list environment.

Have you tried changing \parskip or \itemsep within shortenumerate?
Something like

\begin{shortenumerate}\parskip=10ex
% ...
\end{shortenumerate}

10ex is probably more space than you want, but it shouldn't be hard
find a suitable value.
