Jacob sent KeLee a friend request on Facebook in November 2016. The two exchanged a few DMs and she finally agreed to go on a date to Little Rock with him. KeLee lived in Conway at the time and was volunteering in at Arkansas Children's Hospital on Friday's. She thought it was so rude that she had to travel to Little Rock twice in one day and was convinced there would not be a second date.
Needless to say, the date was a total success and there were plenty more to follow that fateful November night. Four weeks after their first date, KeLee invited Jacob to an out-of-town work Christmas party in Dallas. The 10-hour car ride, their relationship blossomed and they become official in January 2017.
The couple took a trip back to Dallas in March 2017 and Jacob told KeLee he loved her for the first time. Dates filled with road trips, OKC Thunder games, and concerts later the couple took the trip-of-a-lifetime to Paris.
"On February 26th, 2019, Jacob got down on one knee in front of the Eiffel Tour and asked me to spend forever with him," KeLee said. "And that's exactly what I am going to do!"
KeLee and Jacob were scheduled to tie the knot at the Clinton Presidential Center in downtown Little Rock on June 20, 2020, but due to COVID-19, they are rescheduling their date in 2021.
