Thirty-two-year-old Jessica Anderson from Fairfield, Iowa, was in a bar when she met Jesse in November 2008. He was out having a few drinks before his regular two-week hospital visits. Jesse had cystic fibrosis, but that didn’t stop the pair hitting it off that night.
It was something of a whirlwind romance. And Jessica was quickly smitten. Jesse told her about his medical condition within a couple of weeks, but she didn’t mind. In fact, she had already suspected it and had been reading up on the condition.
