Jillian (Estes) and Charlie Stankovic met in 2013 after overhearing stories about one another. During finals week, they played sand volleyball.
Some of their favorite shared campus experiences include classes and “anything that SUB hosted.”
“We miss the S&T bubble of freedom,” she says.
Charlie earned a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering in 2016, and Jillian earned a bachelor’s degree in architectural engineering 2017, the same year the couple married.
“Rolla has given me my forever family with my husband and two children.”
