It is truly sad that you have gone home Sherri. I cherish the times that we worked together. The last year since August has been tough for me going through troubles & my computer failing me many times since it reached 5 years old. Sherri, you managed my Band & gave it the best push it could have had! Thank You so much for just being You! know you are in a better place eternally! I will see you in glory!
Scott Waters (Ultimatum, No Life till Metal)
Wow! I just found out Ultimatum’s promotional manager passed away today.She was my close friend. She’s been battling cancer and I guess it finally won. Though death never wins as she is with our Lord now. See you in eternity Sherri!

A dear and wonderful person passed today after a long struggle with her health… a longtime and tireless supporter of the CCM Metal Movement…
RIP Sherri Ross… May you have found your peace in the arms of the Saviour…
Shawn Browning (Grave Robber, Rottweiler Records)
My friend, Sherri Ross passed today. She was a promoter and promotions manager for Mortification, Ultimatum, and Faith Factor. Last I heard she was doing well and beating the cancer. I’m so sad that I didn’t know she was doing worse. She was quite a big Grave Robber fan and supporter. Always a great source of encouragement to me personally. I have faith that she is wrapped lovingly in The Creator’s arms. Her cancer is gone and she is completely healed. See you soon, Sherri! Save a spot for me in the front row, sister!!
Michael Philips (Deliverance, Fasedown)
Hard to believe this… Thank you for all your help with my music, Now enjoy Paradise
Dale Thompson (The World Will Burn, Bride)
Heartbroken over the loss of my sister. I have known Sherri for a very long time. Find comfort now and peace in the arms of our Lord.
Jayson Sherlock (Revulsed, ex Mortification, Horde)
Be at peace Sherri. You are loved.
Janice Sweet (Stryper mom)
Just saying you will be missed my special friend. God needed another angel, so He walked you home!
Joel Goodwin (The Jazzsoulmetal Experience)
Sherri was a great friend that I’ve known since 2011! We finally started working on a project together – a tribute to Mortification. That project WILL happen and it’s turning out epic. It was so cool to see her so excited about this – and Steve being so surprised! I’m also glad that Sherri got a chance to meet her favorite singer (Chuck Negron of Three Dog Night) recently. She was so stoked y’all!
I’m thankful for all of our discussions and our work and I vow that this work shall continue – and it will be epic. I love you forever, my friend, and I’ll see you again soon.

Oh my goodness. God rest your soul. We had some great talks.
