Jack & Carol Sheridan

Chicago, Illinois

Builders, Leaders, Parents

Jack is a first generation American, emigrating from Ireland. A leader in law enforcement, he became head of the FBI in Chicago where he met the love of his life, Carol. Together they raised eight children to believe in the value of big dreams, hard work and caring for each other. I enjoyed doing this portrait for their daughter and my friend, Dr. Susan Sheridan, Director of the National Center for Research on Rural Education at UNL.
