Cheryl Whittaker is Jerome Whittaker's wife and J.J. and Carly Whittaker's mother.

In Legendaddy, Barney decides to give his dad another chance. He attends dinner with his dad and meet his wife, Cheryl and their son, J.J. At dinner, Barney gets into a competition with J.J., and makes fun of him because he doesn't make as much money as Barney and doesn't seem to be athletic after Cheryl says her boy is good at basketball. Jerry plays along for a moment, until Cheryl tells him that's enough. But once he finds out J.J. stands for Jerome Junior, he leaves. Then J.J. tells Cheryl he likes having a brother. In the Mom and Dad, she is taken somewhere in Ranjit's limousine, so Barney can try to get his mom and dad back together.
