About Sherry Chapman

Sherry Chapman’s son Ryan was killed in a car crash just days after celebrating his nineteenth birthday . . . the same birthdate he shares with his mom. Following Ryan’s sudden death, Sherry struggled to survive herself. In learning how to live again, she became an advocate for safe teen driving.

In 2014, Sherry received national recognition from Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety in Washington, D.C. for her contributions to saving lives, preventing injuries and making roads safer. She was presented in 2017 with Connecticut’s Safety Champion award in recognition of her years of exceptional advocacy and leadership on teen driving issues.

Sherry currently lives in Connecticut with her husband, Michael, one dog, two cats, and an active hive of honey bees.
