John Sherman lived in Vermont most of his life. He was able to pursue education across the world, attending high school in England in the 1970’s and then returning to the United States to study Business and Film studies at both Johnson State College and the University of Vermont. John began his career as a financial advisor, where he believed the greatest challenge and pursuit was to help people get where they needed to go. John married the love of his life in 2009, which amplified his commitments to his family, friends, and his community. A year later, he was diagnosed with Progressive Relapsing MS, but he never lost his positive outlook on life. He fought both MS and Pancreatic cancer, which earned him the moniker “Sherman Tank”. His warm spirit, kindness, courage and gratitude left a lasting impact on everyone that knew him. The family and friends of John Sherman seek to honor his memory by supporting students from Vermont who have disabilities.
