Yokwe to all my Family and Friends at home in the Marshalls and abroad.
Imagine…our daughter Jessica getting married.
My wife and I are proud to announce that Saturday, September 13, 2008, Jessica Joy Rowa married Jason Andrew Gatlin in beautiful ceremony held in Dana Point, California.
With a sweeping view of the ocean, shady trees and gently sloping grass covered hills, and walkways leading down to the Dana Point Harbor, the famous Lantern Bay Park was the ideal place for the outdoor wedding and reception.
In a morning ceremony, facing the Pacific Ocean, Jessica and Jason exchanged their vows. Rev. Josh Barclay, from Midland, Michigan, performed the ceremony.
Jessica and Jason, both 23, met their first year at Vanguard University in Costa Mesa. Both graduated this past year — Jessica majored in Political Science. Jason, an accomplished musician, who has shared his talents in India, China, South Korea, and across Europe, was a Music major.
The couple are looking forward to their work in Christian ministries together and serving at Integrity Christian Center where Jason is the music and youth director. Jessica will also continue in her job as executive assistant for a investment management/currency exchange/trading firm.
A special thanks to all who helped make this a very special day.
Best wishes to the lovely couple.
