Widowed newlyweds connect and marry

jessica moreland and jordan rice

Less than a year after saying “I do,” Jessica Moreland, 30, and Jordan Rice, 31, lost their respective spouses. Moreland’s husband and “soul mate” Jaronn had a motorbike accident on May 15, 2009; severe injuries and major blood loss led to his eventual death on July 30 of the same year. Rice’s wife died of stage four cancer (primary cardiac sarcoma, a rare cancer that develops in or on the heart) 10 months after their wedding.

Both were in their 20s at the time. Watch this moving video on YouTube as they discuss how they met and recently married.
