Word at the ice rink eventually got back to him that Casey, the cute blonde that worked with him though he was cute. Clearly he agreed because he worked up the courage to ask her out. He beat around the bush and made small talk, but eventually he asked if she would come watch his hockey game and then let him take her to dinner. He asked a co-worker what her favorite restaurant was, and when they got to the steakhouse, she ordered chicken to seem low maintenance. She still feels that was pretty sly and that she totally fooled him!

September 7th 2002, she noticed him sitting by the bonfire after homecoming. She initiated a conversation and that very moment changed the rest of their lives.
It started as friends and eventually, he asked her out. They went on a double date to a movie, only… he didn’t pay. It was strike one. Strike 2 would come later in the car when she realized David sings loudly and horribly when he drives. She looked out the window trying her best not to laugh as he belted out song after song. By good fortune – strike 3 never materialized.
They rode the bus together growing up, but the circles they ran in never crossed. She finally took a second look at number 48 while he was out on the football field. She made sure they officially met one another and as fate would have it, #48 gave her a ride home that very night. They were both nervous, so much so he froze when it was time to try to kiss her. She though it was sweet and he was being a gentleman, so she agreed to another date.
She was working at the Knotty Pine and he was a regular customer. That is, a regular customer on the days she was working only. She watched him from the kitchen and would hide and giggle any time he saw her staring at him. She thought he was cute, but didn’t know he thought the same.
It may not have ever happened if it weren’t for Kelly. She was the one who really got the ball rolling. Her dad was dating Jon’s mom when she realized Jon would be a great match for her friend Barb. She asked Barb if she could set her up and after it was OK’d she made it happen. Set ups aren’t always as great as you’d hoped, but there was a connection almost immediately. She thought he was so tall and handsome and wondered how she’d be lucky enough to land this guy, but she pulled it off because he called to set up a date the very next day. Ever since they have been inseparable and as Kelly says – they are a match made in heaven.
