Sean first joined the Board of Directors of Wish Granters in 2019 and, in 2020, served as the Vice President. He stepped away to focus on his teenage son and career and now serves as an advisory board member.
He helped his wife run a successful company that provided therapy to children with autism for 16 years. Sean is a proud father of an extraordinary young man and had the rare opportunity to be a stay-at-home dad for seven years. In 2012, he returned to work in the traditional sense by joining St. Luke’s and now leads an IT team.
When Sean Joined Wish Granters, he brought a unique insight into the essence of the organization. In 2010, his wife Michelle was diagnosed with terminal cancer. He wrestled with balancing the duties of being a father, husband, employee, friend, and caregiver.
After years of watching his wife suffer and deteriorate, Sean felt called to explore what he could do for his wife, as well as what could make a positive, lasting memory for him and his son. He reached out to Wish Granters, and in the winter of 2015, his wife’s wish was fulfilled. They made beautiful memories in Fairbanks, Alaska, and were able to see her free from pain and fear. She had a childlike giddiness while taking in the incredible sights of the Arora Borealis, a memory they will cherish forever.
Sean’s wife passed away on Valentine’s Day 2018, but the gift provided by Wish Granters will live on forever. Sean now devotes his time and effort to Wish Granters’ development, growth, and success so many others may be blessed with a special gift that brightens lives in a tough time.
