Where did you meet?
In the cafeteria.

Did a classmate introduce you?
Yes, by Cheryl Anne Soister.

Favorite budding SJC courtship memory?​
Our first kiss — in the Rec Room.

Where was your first date?
We went bowling then out to lunch at Jahn's.

The proposal:
He dropped me off after a date. We sat in the car and, being a man of very few words, he handed me a letter asking me to marry him. Those who know him find this hilarious.

What's your message to the SJC community this Valentine's Day?
As SJC became coed the year before we entered, I never expected that I would find the love of my life there — you just never know what is in store for you. In the words of Thomas Merton: "Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone — we find it with another." SJC was the right place at the right time for both of us!
