According to Screener TV, Jake and Jenna met at a festival in Seattle when Jenna asked Jake for an autograph. The outlet reported that was doing shipyard duty, and these people were coming up to get autographs. And among them were Jenna and her family jumped off the boat to come and get autographs from Jake and his mates. Jake had then autographed “You’re beautiful.”
Jenna’s nieces then persuaded her to go back and give Jake her number. So, Jenna gave him her number. And Jake who was living on the boat and was trying to stay out of trouble and was not thinking of going out and spending money anyway fell in love with her.
Then, in 2012, the year they got married and engaged, TLC had interviewed Jenna about her proposal, which took place at Waimea Canyon in Kauai.

Seeming during the time Jenna was pregnant with Candence, they had a scare. This was even documented in an episode of Deadliest Catch which showed Jenna and Jake going to her doctor’s office to look at a sonogram. The doctor then tells them that part of the baby’s neck is thick. The doctor also indicates that it could be something like Down’s Syndrome.
