From the bride: “Jessica and Jesse have been together over 12 years and it all started in college! As a fresh Freshman
(only 2 months in!), Jessica was walking in the student union late one Sunday night with a friend, when Jesse
noticed Jesse wearing a sweatshirt that said Berlin Brothersvalley Track & Field. Jesse had briefly moved
from Pittsburgh for high school after her mother remarried to a small town nearby where Jesse grew up called
Berlin. Berlin is actually just a few miles from Shanksville where Flight 93 went down on 9/11 when Jessica
was a sophomore. Typically people would hear she was from Berlin and think she was from Berlin, Germany.
She would respond with “no, Berlin like Synders of Berlin” – which is a snack chip company in Pennsylvania –
or she would tell people she lived next to Shanksville, Pennsylvania since that gave a frame of reference.
Well, Jesse ask her if she was from “Berlin, like Synders of Berlin” since his dad actually worked there (the
factory was right behind the Berlin Brothersvalley high school – and yes you could smell the chips and in
school, chips were only 15 cents. Fresh off of a terrible breakup, Jesse was pretty gutsy to go up to a random
girl and strike up conversation. Jessica replied with a snarky, “no, Berlin like Berlin, Germany,” laughed and
walked away. Poor Jesse haha. But Jessica had also recently broke up with her high school boyfriend and
was heartbroken herself, so the last thing on her mind was giving a boy the time of day!
Jesse said he would often see Jessica over the next couple of months, but Jessica always says she couldn’t
“pick him out of a lineup.” One time he even saw her at a hockey game just outside where he grew up since
he referred hockey games and she had friends who played hockey in the high schools he refereed. Boy did
that make him mad haha.
Not too much after that, Jesse had his wisdom teeth out and while heavily medicated, finally got the guts to
talk to Jessica again as she visited some of his friends that she had become friends with at his dorm.
Wouldn’t it be a great story if we started dating then and have been together ever since?? Welllll, it took
another year and a half to finally make it official.
Jesse actually asked Jessica to be his girlfriend two times, and each time she said no until finally he said he
was done asking and she would have to ask HIM! So, a few months later, she took him out for a date at
Denny’s (pancakes are the BEST) and SHE asked him to be her boyfriend. We’ve been boyfriend and
girlfriend every day since October 19th, 2005! After being together for 10 years, it’s probably going to be hard to surprise someone with a proposal, but
Jessica was definitely surprised!
We had lived apart for more than half of our relationship and when we both moved out to Cleveland
(separately – Jesse first for work and then Jessica a year and a half later), we felt like we had finally found a
city to put down roots. So, we started looking for houses, but also talked about getting engaged. We decided it
was one or the other though! And a month later we had found a house quicker than anticipated and put in an
offer over Labor Day. While Jessica was in Chicago for work, our realtor told us we had got the house! Jesse
picked up Jessica from the airport a few days later and as they pulled into the driveway, he handed her…a slip
of yellow paper. Haha. It was a receipt for a ring he had bought, but that wasn’t ready yet. So there in the work
Dodge Ram truck outside of our garage, he proposed. But it was a surprise! And Jessica said yes! “
