Schefft, 32, and Waterman, 35, met on a blind date in February 2008.
Jen Schefft attended Mentor High school and graduated in the year 1994.
Later into the episode, she also declined Jerry’s proposal, but didn’t break up with him. In 2007, Schefft published a book, “Better Single Than Sorry,” that helped clear the air with fans who resented her for not finding the happy ending they wanted.
The two stuck together for three months, before doing an After The Rose special where she officially ended things. In it, she explained that she was not content marrying whoever was convenient, and instead believed that it was better to focus on being happy and single.
Joe Waterman worked in a corporate office in Chicago, so the two had very similar lifestyles.
Not long after they married, Jen and Joe Waterman had their first daughter, who they named Mae Elizabeth.
