Jess and Scott met on msn messenger
August 2002 through a mutual friend, Scott was 18 and Jess was 16.
Their friendship blossomed over the next couple of months;
Scott & Jessica together at last
They would often talk on msn messenger and
the webcam chat client; 'Eyeball' till all hours off the morning; just
getting to know each other even though Jess had school in the morning.
They were both growing very fond of each other; falling more and more in
love each and everyday that they talked; but neither of them knew how to
tell the other.
One night at about 1am (NZ time) Jess couldn't contain herself any
longer and blurted out 'I have fallen in love with you'
Scott looked at the message and was shocked but at the some time glad
that he knew how she truly felt about him.
For the rest of the night Scott put off telling Jess how he felt about
her in fear that she was just joking around and didn't truly mean what
he read on the screen.
It took two days of not mentioning what
Jess had said to him until he was ready to confess his feelings for
Jess. In October 2002 two days after the confession of Jess; Scott also
confessed his feelings of undying love to her.
Scott & Jess both knew they had to meet in person eventually and so
proceeded to make plans for too meet. As Scott was un-employed and had
little savings; and with Jess in her last year of high school; with no
savings, this was going to be an impossible mission.
They both settled on a date to meet in the USA which was March 17th 2003
five months down the track; which would give them plenty of time to save
money and develop the relationship further.
Scott looked desperately for a job but could not find one that would pay
enough in 5 months for him to make it to see Jess & so they came up with
The plan was to get a loan from the bank but with Scott being
un-employed and having little savings this was yet another road block
but being the optimistic couple they were and still are; they didn't
Scott being very optimistic booked a plane ticket to get himself to Los
Angeles on March 17th 2003, he booked the ticket with 9 weeks to go till
the plane would leave the airport; even though he didn't have the money
to pay for the ticket.
Scott in the end managed to get a small loan from a family member and
landed himself a job that would give him 7 weeks of savings.
Scott & Jess met in Sacramento California March 22nd 2003; even though
Scott landed on US soil on the 17th of March, Scott was staying in Santa
Barbara with Jess's best friend's family from the 17th of March till the
22nd because it was Jess's friends family who was driving to Sacramento
with Scott for the two of them to meet.
Scott stayed in USA with Jess for 3 months then took a plane to London
UK and spending 5 days there before coming back to the US because he
needed his Visa Waiver renewed and to do that; he had to be out of USA
for 48 hours.
Scott left Jessica after another 3 months to go back home to New Zealand
to start saving to bring Jessica to New Zealand to live; Scott got a
full time job within the first two days of arriving back home.
With Jessica and Scott both working full time; but in separate
countries; it was only a matter of time before they were reunited again.
On the 31st of December 2003 Jessica and Scott were reunited in Dunedin
Airport, New Zealand.
Scott & Jessica were married 9th July 2005 surrounded by family and
friends in New Zealand. Unfortunately Jessica's family were unable to
make the event but were supporting us emotionally; at the time of
marriage Scott was 20 and Jessica was 19.
Scott and Jessica immigrated to the USA to live in Reno, Nevada in
October 2005 and are still there loving every minute of it. Scott has a
job as a computer salesman/ Tech and Jessica has just started work as an
