“Jason is one of the best PR professionals I worked with during my 16 years as a reporter. He manages to be tenacious and relentless with a humble charm, easy smile and enthusiasm that’s infectious. He’s a great advocate for clients, while at the same time he’s authentic and earnest. He excels at cultivating sources and making connections. In short: Jason is a true pro, and an absolute pleasure to work with.”

“I have been working with Jason and his team for over a year and a half, and I would highly recommend them. They give highly personalized attention and provide tangible results, which is something we haven’t really found in any other PR agency over the years. They are great listeners and idea agents – but also very effective at getting things done.”

“Sherman Communications & Marketing has provided fantastic service and execution for us. We decided to work with them after having been disappointed by the work of a national communications agency. Sherman has delivered exactly what we were looking for: an all-of-the-above communications and PR platform with a localized, Midwestern eye and sensibility.”

“For the two years I worked closely with Jason, he was the lead person on our agency’s account team. He consistently recommended and implemented low-cost, high-impact PR and marketing communications strategies and initiatives that got RE/MAX International results. We found him to be creative, imaginative, energetic, and very helpful. I would make the highest recommendation to anyone considering working with Jason Sherman.”

Bill Echols, former vice president of public relations

“I reached out to Jason in late 2014 to help us with our PR through a strong recommendation from a mutual colleague. I was happy to find that Jason is more than just PR. He is a strong marketer. He is a terrific ‘thought partner’ as well. Jason sees the big picture but also understands the details well enough to get things done. He has great people-skills and as a result, he has been able to forge great relationships with our media partners and key influencers. Our recent success at CES in Vegas is a great example of Jason’s contributions. As a start-up competing against thousands of companies attempting to get the media’s focus and attention, CES can be particularly overwhelming. I was amazed to see the amount of coverage he helped generate for us. It was a culmination of great teamwork and collaboration in developing the right story but also an example of his relentless energy and focus to contact, engage, and follow-up with key media partners. We look forward to working closely with Jason as we evolve our platform and story!”

Over the past two years, Jason and I have worked together on more than a dozen strategic and tactical plans on behalf of a major healthcare client.

“Working with Jason was great. He was instrumental in helping our nonprofit rebrand itself to be better positioned in our environment, and he really strived to get a strong grasp on our industry so that he could do so in the best possible way. His media outreach opened many doors for us with relevant, far-reaching publications. He helped us formulate and incorporate our strategic plans to deliver to top members of meaningful organizations in our field. He was always very easy to reach and quick to respond, and his work ethic and personality make him one of the easiest and best people I’ve had the pleasure to work with in my career. I would absolutely recommend Jason and hope that I can work together with him again in the future.”

“In my 18 years of marketing, I’ve hired and worked with more marketing agencies and consultants than I can probably remember. One person that stands out for me, however, is Jason Sherman. He has proven himself a hard-working, hard-hitting marketing strategist who blends bold strategic thinking and ingenious execution. He’s a well-rounded marketing athlete and brilliant PR consultant – overall a smart-thinking strategic planner, tactician, and problem solver. If you’re looking for innovative marketing that really moves the needle, I’d recommend Jason to anyone but my competitors.”

Randy Foliente, former head of marketing with three previous SCM clients

If you want results, Jason is the guy.”

Jason brings a wealth of public relations experience & expertise to the table. He is very thorough in gathering the information needed. He is strategic in his recommendations. He is creative in his implementation. He has a high level of integrity & transparency. And, as an added bonus, he is so fun to work with….and that’s always a huge plus in my book. I think so highly of him that I brought him in to help another client of mine…and both of my clients have been thrilled with all he has to offer. I’m sure Jason & I will be working together for a very long time to come.”

“I had the pleasure of working with Jason recently on a project he performed for the South Suburban Mayors and Managers Association/Chicago Southland Housing and Community Development Collaborative (the Collaborative). Jason was hired to create a strategic plan for marketing a Collaborative housing initiative to create a homebuyer pipeline. I was extremely impressed with Jason’s grasp of the project, his delivery and the product itself. Jason’s passion and commitment was especially impressive given the short timeframe and the small dollar amount of the project. Jason’s knowledge of the foreclosure problem and the issues surrounding it was of great value.”
