Those of you born in the 60s and 70s might have been familiar with the popular game show, ‘Wheels of Fortune’. If you were not, don’t worry. 

In this article, we will throw light on Sherril Sajak, ex-wife of one of the popular game show hosts on TV, Pat Sajak.

 She has lived a very private life since her divorce from her then husband but we will do well to bring the little we know about her to bear.

Who is Sherrill Sajak?

Sheriill James Sajak is an American born in 1945.

It is assumed she was born in Tennesse.

No information is out there about her childhood, education, parents, etc until 1978 when she met Pat Sajak.

The both were next door neighbours who fell in love.

They married in 1979 in front of family and loved ones.

Again, no pictures are available to the media so we can make only draw one conclusion; Pat wasn’t famous then.

Sherrill might have been the light in the dark Pat needed as 3 years after they married, Pat got his breakthrough in the media space. 

The happiness of the couple could however not hold as they divorced after 7 years of marriage.

The divorce was very quiet.


Records available to the media indicate that Sherrill Sajiak was born in 1945, during World War 2. 

It therefore places her age at 77.

We will therefore talk about her ex-husband. Patrick Leonard Sajak, popularly known as Pat Sajak is the ex-wife of Sherrill Sajak.

He is originally from Chicago, Illinois. He has served In the US Army where he was a Disc Jockey during the World War 2.

He is originally known for Wheels of Fortune and also known for writing several puzzle games. Before that, he hosted the Dawn Buster show.

He holds the record of the longest career host of a game show.

Net worth

Just like every aspect of her life, Sherrill’s net worth has been private and away from the media.

We can therefore not give any range of her net worth.

Irrespective, she should be worth a handsome fortune since her then husband enjoyed fame and money at the time of their divorce.


In their 7 years of marriage, the couple were not known to have had a baby.

Therefore, Sherrill Shajak is known to have no children.
