Jeanne is a Geotechnical Engineer with GEI Consultants, and David is a Rowing Coach for Boston University. They are currently
living in Cambridge, MA.
HOW THEY MET:
Dave's first National Sculling Team Coach, Jim Dietz, later went on to coach Jeanne's
college team (UMass Amherst), so they knew of each other for a few years before anything "happened". A mutual friend,
Jen Ray (aka Jen Strong), set them up by telling Dave that Jeanne really liked his email jokes. Jen encouraged Dave to "go
for it" and ask Jeanne out. Dave got up his courage to ask Jeanne for their first big "date" -the BU Crew Senior
Class River Cruise.
They became engaged on January 03, 2000.
