Sherri Guedea
Donate Life Ambassador

Sherri Guedea relocated from Southern Louisiana to Southern California where she raised her three children, Scott, Alex and Ashleigh. She built several successful insurance agencies over the years and now devotes her time to public speaking, authoring her first book, and creating awareness of the incredible ripple effects of organ and tissue donation.

In 2012, Sherri and her husband Rick faced an unimaginable situation when their 21 year old son, Alex, took his own life. Faced with the decision of organ donation upon hearing the horrific news that Alex was brain dead, they, together with their two other children, made the decision for Alex to be an organ donor. In Sherri’s words, “it was the best decision we could have ever made under those circumstances”.

Sherri and her husband Rick have been married for 26 years. Sherri is devoted to finishing her book and sharing Alex’s story.
