Jesse, a 28-year old Marine, tragically ended up losing both of his legs when he stepped on an IED (improvised explosive device) in 2009, when he was stationed in Afghanistan.

When he thought he had lost everything, it was time for him to actually get a big surprise from his life. During his recovery sessions, he happened to meet Kelly, the love of his life at a swim meet in San Diego. Jesse was quoted in an interview:

“If I wouldn’t have stepped on the IED I don’t think I would have met her. I wouldn’t take it back ever.”

A picture taken at a family vacation, celebrating their first anniversary suddenly went viral for all the right reasons. As Kelly says:

“It's cool because we represent a lot of people, couples that are going through the same thing and so it's just an honour to be able to represent that."

Jesse too shares the same feelings:

“This photo is a symbol of our relationship, she is physically carrying me, but there are times where she is carrying me emotionally. It’s a perfect representation of who Kelly is.”
