Daughter of Cor and sister of Grappling founder Jimmy Van, Sheri was the glue of her family. A hard-working, determined, no nonsense, quick witted personality, she entered the corporate world right after graduating college, spent nearly 30 years climbing the company ladder, and was promoted to a management-level position not long before being diagnosed with Stage IV melanoma in April of 2019. She fought valiantly, courageously and with never a complaint before her battle ended on July 6, 2020. Her company lowered their flags to half-mast nationwide in her honour.
