Sharri had to deal with several problems after her ex-husband's death including the adult-onset Type 1 diabetes. Her diagonalization with diabetes was revealed in the book “The Man I Never Met: A Memoir.“ As per Adam, Sharri is the strongest woman he knows.

When Adam was asked about his married life is different from the others. He replied, 

'Every marriage has issues. But if you're married to a 9/11 widow, it does seem everything is more accentuated. After 9/11, Sharri hasn't enjoyed traveling. She gets anxious. She was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes a year after the attacks.  These are well fallouts from what happened. My hope was to make her as happy as possible and try to help replace what she lost. That's difficult because Joe was such a great man.'

The couple is involved in charities to help children with diabetes. Schefter is also a JDRF ambassador. While talking about his role, he said: “When I went down to Washington, I was with so many young children living with T1D – fighting so bravely and courageously. Just to be a part of that community. It’s almost like a fraternity – people who have Type 1 and the people who have been touched by it, and I feel included in that fraternity.” 

Here is a video of Adam talking about Joe, his wife's ex-husband.
