In the fall of 2008, John enrolled at Manhattan College on a whim the week before classes started, where Tracey was entering her Junior year. Because all classes were full, the school enrolled him in the only classes left that had space. With Tracey in the school of education and John in the school of business, the only chance to cross paths would be an English class. Luckily. the stars aligned and they both happened to be in the same section of "Short Stories." With Tracey diligently taking notes up front, and John peacefully sleeping in the back, needless to say, her heavy assistance to him was required come exam times. Tracey being a soccer player, and John, a "lacrosse-bro," perhaps they were meant to be, but after that semester, they were inseparable. Four apartments, a 90 lb. pit bull, and tons of graduate school later, John proposed to Tracey on November 1st, 2014 along the East River in New York City. Now they prepare to begin their lifelong journey together. Currently residing in Stamford, Connecticut with their lovable dog Bronx, Tracey works in Manhattan at Hospital for Special Surgery as a Physical Therapist, and John works in Connecticut, brokering the fuel that is used by cargo and cruise ships. They couldn't be happier and more excited to spend their life together and are looking forward to celebrating their first night of marriage with family and friends!
