Through Noble’s Community Employment service, Jessica works at First Watch while Michael works at the Hampton Inn. The two have been an item since they first shared a lunch table at Carmel High School in 9th grade.
Then over a 2014 Christmas vacation in Las Vegas, Michael proposed by the fountain outside the Bellagio Hotel. “I have joy. I’m just so happy,” says Michael.His mom Kelly added, “It’s a testimony to others with Down syndrome. I met someone the other day who said that her daughter has Down syndrome, and she didn’t know what her adult life could be like.” Nuptials are planned for August 5th.
