Our Story

Jen grew up in Pelham Manor, NY with her parents and her 2 brothers. After high school she went on to study Psychology and play Varsity Tennis at Mount Saint Mary College in Newburgh, NY. Shortly after college she landed her job at Memorial Sloan Kettering helping cancer patients, where she continues to work today. Jen absolutely loves to spend her time surrounded by family on Lake Winnipesaukee. You should know her favorite thing to do at the lake is water ski! Jen was happy, but she was always holding out hope that some day she would find Mr. Right… You never know??

Jeff grew up in Rye, NY with his parents and his brother. After high school, he went on to study Hospitality Management at Johnson & Wales University in Providence, RI. Shortly after college Jeff started working for Marriott and is now a General Manager for a Marriott Courtyard in central CT. Jeff has a passion for music and has always loved playing the drums. He loves to spend time with his friends and family, often on the water at Shenorock Shore Club in Rye, NY. Jeff was happy, although he was always hoping to find Ms. Right…You never know??

Now for the fun part! Jen and Jeff both think fate had something to do with it, but we also must give credit to our mutual family friend for thinking of us. It was this mutual friend who ultimately brought us together. Nancy (Jen's mom) after asking for the OK from Jen, sent an email to Vivian to pass along her email address to Jeff. Shortly after, Jeff and Jen exchanged email addresses, chatted a bit on the phone, and then decided to go on a blind date at CHAT 19 on December 26, 2015!

Little did any of us know at the time, Nancy's email to Vivian would be highlighted as part of Jeff's proposal to Jen in Old Saybrook, CT on March 4, 2017! Now we know!
