Melissa Hughes (Stainbrook) and Jake Hughes (La Follette '99)

We were introduced by mutual friends who were colleagues of Jake's. Our journey began on February 2nd, 1997, just in time for us to attend Twerp together. Five years later, on November 2nd, 2002, we exchanged vows and embarked on building our first and only home the following year. With three boys, our life is rich and fulfilling.

Friendship has been the cornerstone of our relationship, providing the stability and support we needed through various challenges. From financial struggles to navigating pandemic-induced remote learning for our children, we've faced it all together. Balancing opposite work shifts to prioritize our family hasn't been easy, but it's strengthened our bond.

Now, after 27 years together and celebrating our 21st wedding anniversary in November, we remain deeply committed to each other and our children, making them our utmost priority.
