Chris Chambers, Groomsman
Chris and Jessica have been
close friends since high school, but his relationship with Jesse goes

In sixth grade, he and Jesse faced off at the district-level spelling

Jessica and Chris met each other on friendlier ground at Central High School and quickly became fast friends. Their friendship remained intact even as they left for rival colleges, with Chris adopting Minnesota's hated (by Jessica's alma mater, UW-Madison) maroon and gold. Despite her Badger affiliation, Jessica kept in touch with Chris as he worked toward his Business degree. Jesse's reunion with Chris during this time was marked by a complete lack of spelling-related feuding. Chris graduated from the "U" in May of 2002 and took a job in the Purchasing department at a Minneapolis toy company.
