Born in Tržič, then in SFR Yugoslavia, Jerman specialized in the speed events of downhill and super G. He gained his first World Cup victory at Garmisch-Partenkirchen in February 2007 in a downhill, the first-ever for Slovenia. The next day he finished second, again in the downhill. Until then, his best World Cup result was fourth place in a downhill at Bormio, two months earlier. Jerman later gathered his second victory at Bormio, and finished his career with four World Cup podiums, all in downhill, and 27 top tens, with 18 in downhill. His best result in Super G was fourth, which came at Lake Louise in November 2007.

Jerman represented Slovenia at three Winter Olympics and five World Championships. He announced his retirement from competition in late January 2013, following a crash during the Tuesday training run at Kitzbühel. After his fall, he got up and skied down, and then collapsed unconscious in the finish area. Jerman was transferred to the hospital by helicopter, where doctors diagnosed a severe concussion. He had missed most of the previous season after breaking his shin on the Birds of Prey course at Beaver Creek in early December 2011.
