Jacquelyn (Stroble) and Robert Nagel met in 2005 during their first semester as graduate students.
“We both took the same class and became study partners,” she says.
Jacquelyn earned a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering in 2005 and a master’s degree in manufacturing engineering in 2007. Robert earned a master’s degree in mechanical engineering in 2006. The couple married in 2009.
“Robert proposed while we were looking up at the stars next to the Puck,” she adds.
Today they are both associate professors of engineering at James Madison University.
