During the Kappa Delta spring formal on April 11, 2008, Chelsey noticed a handsome young man sitting by himself. She proceed to approach him to ask him to dance. His reply,”Nah, that’s okay.” He immediately realized his mistake and tried to find the opportunity to talk to the pretty girl once again. The perfect opportunity arose a few weeks later when Chelsey voiced her need for a biology tutor on Facebook. He immediately responded, and they made a date to meet at the LRC. They hit it off instantly. John proposed on October 2, 2010, and they were wed on June 11, 2011 exactly four weeks after they both graduated.
