Derick and JJ met in graduate school in Chicago, IL in the fall of 2009. While studying the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis, they realized that they were each other's most highly preferred reinforcers (for those unfamiliar with ABA: they fell in love). They will be married in Chicago on July 21st, 2012, with receptions in Chicago, Seattle, and Ramseur in the weeks following.
