On February 15, 2013, Jeffrey stopped in at Starbucks on a very cold afternoon to get a coffee. Upon arrival, standing in front of him, was a young man named Sergio. Jeffrey said, "Hello" and Sergio said, "Hello". They each ordered their coffee and due to seating be limited inside of Starbucks, they decided to share a table.
Thus began the greatest love story ever to be told!
In December of 2014, Jeffrey asked Sergio to marry him, to which Sergio replied, "Yes"! Jeffrey and Sergio moved in together. Jeffrey, with his three dachshunds: Isabella, Lucy and Wilson and Sergio with his two miniature schnauzers: Addison and Noir, and they made a new home together filled with love (and puppies!). Before long, Jeffrey and Sergio added Jack, Jill, Elisabeth, Tate, Motley and Foxy to their growing family.
Jeffrey and Sergio own and operate many business ventures and non-profits, keeping the two of them very busy; although not so busy they aren't able to enjoy their family at home and spend time with family and friends.
Jeffrey and Sergio selected April 29, 2017 as their wedding date and look forward to sharing the love they share for one another with their family and friends from across the United States and Brazil.
Together with their family and friends

SERGIO SARAGOCA, JR.
