Jessica and Jesse met while out with friends in College Station. The pair instantly bonded over their shared name since her friends and family have always called her Jessi. From then on, they were known as girl Jessi and boy Jesse, or Jesse squared. They quickly fell in love and have been falling more in love with each other ever since.
Jessi and Jesse had been dating long-distance for one year; she was in Galveston attending graduate school and he moved to Tucson after earning his master’s degree. Jesse traveled to Galveston for Jessi’s birthday and had planned a surprise birthday dinner. They traversed to the far east end of the island where she had never been. Jesse revealed they would be having a sunset picnic on the beach. They ate, drank wine and reveled in their time together. As the sun was about to cross the horizon, Jesse began talking about their life together. He then got down on one knee and asked Jessi the question she had longed to hear. Through tears of joy, she said yes.
