Jason & Lauren met in 8th grade while attending Blue Valley Middle School in 2004. While navigating the teenage years, their friendship grew through attending the same high school and youth group. In May 2012, Lauren moved back to Kansas City for graduate school at KU Med & reconnected with Jason. They briefly dated for awhile in 2013, broke up but remained friends, and then officially got back together for the long haul in May 2015. Jason & Lauren currently live in Kansas City with their 3 fur kids, Winston, Martin, & Remi.
