Jill ’09 & Ben Lannen

I met my husband at St. Mike’s in 2007, although he wasn’t a St. Mike’s student. It was the first week of my junior year and my friends and I were living in the 400’s. As we were part of the Ambassador Program – which was awesome, by the way – one of our friends was traveling abroad during the Fall semester. So we needed a girl to fill her spot for only half the year. So we had a new housemate and her name was Mollie. A few days into the school year, Mollie’s boyfriend Mike came to visit and brought his brother Ben along. Mollie encouraged Ben and I to get to know each other, and to go on a date.

Fast forward ten years. Ben and I are married and have a beautiful four year old daughter. Mollie and Mike are also married, and they have a wonderful three year old daughter. So now we’re a big happy family brought together by fate and a little St. Mike’s magic.

Here is one of Ben and Mike and their dad taken when we all went camping. The visiting brothers who turned into husbands and dads, all due to one fateful visit to St. Mike’s almost a decade ago 🙂
