In honor of Valentine’s Day, we are celebrating our alumni who were hit by Cupid’s arrow at WVU Tech. From an introduction at a Greek social to a proposal on the Tech Mall and a wedding in Jamaica, WVU Tech will always hold a special place in the hearts of our alumni who began their love story on campus.
Joe Cline, ‘02 and Tamara Minturn Cline, ‘04
Joe and Tamara were introduced by mutual friends at the Sigma Pi fraternity house in the fall of 2002. Tamara remembers, “We stood outside and talked for 30 minutes in the freezing cold on the sidewalk. It was like we had known each other forever. Our first date was on December 14, 2002 and the rest is history.” Joe and Tamara were married on July 24, 2004 and had their first child, Holt, in July of 2013.
Josh Cook, ‘12 and Sydney Loftis Cook
Josh knew the moment he met Sydney that there was something special about her. When deciding on a location to ask her to marry him on August 9, 2014, Montgomery was a no brainer. Josh said, “WVU Tech means as much to me as anywhere on this earth. I love this school and that lady. Both of them have made me a much better man.” Josh and Sydney married on January 3, 2015.
Jerome Maestro Wauchope, ‘11 and Hannah Jaskot Wauchope, ‘12
While at WVU Tech, Jerome and Hannah both excelled as soccer players, and it is their mutual love of the sport that brought them together. The couple traveled to Jamaica in July 2014, where they were married surrounded by family and many of their WVU Tech friends. The couple welcomed their first daughter earlier this month.
We would love to hear your WVU Tech love story. Share it with us at Tech-Alumni@mail.wvu.edu
