On this week’s episode Jessica sits down with her husband Jonas to take a walk down memory lane as they reflect on the 8 years of their relationship, 6 spent married. How they met in a ski gondola in Switzerland, fell in love long distance, went through the fiancé visa process in the US and then immigration to Norway, and battled Jessica’s surprise cancer diagnosis. They talk about what they think the “secret” to a successful partnership is, and the values and belief system that is the foundation of their marriage. They also discuss how they think they will be as parents, how a 5 year age gap (Jessica is older!) doesn’t mean a thing, and how culture shock is a real thing.
This short message comes from Jessica during the middle of the global coronavirus crisis. With so much information and overwhelming emotions floating around, she chose to not release a full episode this week in an effort to not be part of the noise. But tune in next week for the continuation of Season 4, as Jessica interviews a special guest: her husband Jonas! They talk about their story and story together — meeting on a ski gondola in Switzerland, immigration to the US and then to Norway, navigating cancer, building a business and starting over in a new career. Jessica and Jonas also talk about pursuing your passions, both as a couple and as individuals. Stay safe and stay well.
