I dont think there is much available. He does have a TBRC profile, although, Im not sure what is in there.
Shechen Rabjam Rinpoche might be a lama of interest for you though.

Chogyam Trungpa gave a series of 6 lectures on Jamgon Kongtrul of Shechen which I found very inspiring. They should be available to purchase from the Vajradhatu Archives.

If there are works by him you could request those teachings from a Shechen lama, such as Changling Rinpoche who travels and teaches, (search for Lotus Speech websites).

Gesar Mukpo might also know of his predecessors works.

You can listen to the original talks on the Chronicles website http://www.chronicleproject.com/CTRlibrary/jamgon_kongtrul.html

Summary
In this extraordinary seminar, Chögyam Trungpa explores his intimate relationship with his root teacher, Jamgon Kongtrul of Shechen, and how this relates to the student teacher relationship in Buddhism altogether. He also talks about the first Jamgon Kongtrul, Jamgon Kongtrul the Great, and his approach to ecumenicism and the contemplative traditions in Buddhism. As with the approach of the newly published Mishap Lineage, (which is about the Trungpa Lineage) the tone of this seminar is highly personal and direct. The Vidyadhara stresses the contemplative tradition of Jamgon Kongtrul and the highly personal aspects of the teacher-student relationship as relevant to practitioners in the West.
