Jeff and Rose met while attending Mount Marty Univerity in Yankton, South Dakota. In the fall of 2018, they became friends who shared an interest in adventure and most importantly their Catholic faith. In January 2019, Rose invited a group of friends to the Black Hills over Christmas break to experience the beautiful scenery and ski on the slopes of Terry Peak. On that trip, their friendship deepened and over the next semester, they began to fall in love. Jeff proposed on July 5, 2022 while biking the Mickelson Trail. They eagerly look forward to celebrating their wedding with you on June 16, 2023.
