Sherri was missing for two years...  On June 26, 2008 at about 1:30 pm, Bennett led authorities to Sherri Jackson’s remains in the backyard of his mother’s home. Sherri Denese Jackson was only 27 years old at the time her life was unfairly and brutally cut short. Her estranged boyfriend received a sentence of 13 years for her murder 

Portia Shipman founded the Sherri Denese Jackson for the Prevention of Domestic Violence, Inc. (SDJF)  in 2008 to help victims of domestic abuse reclaim their lives by breaking free from domestic abuse and educating the community in hopes to save lives. Since then, the  Sherri Denese Jackson Foundation has expanded its vision and goals. They have had hundreds of people participate in their programs and have reached thousands through public awareness campaigns, as well as through their website.
