Ken Deckinger
Jess Deckinger
Adele Tongish
Ken would rather be in flip flops on a 42' Beneteau in the BVI than his office. But he'd probably go broke on sunscreen for his head anyway. Ken was the co-founder/CEO of HurryDate through its acquisition by Spark Networks® (JDate®.com/ChristianMingle®.com.) He spent about three years with the JDate team before answering the call of the entrepreneur once again. He once ate a bug in Cambodia w/Jess egging him on. As a hopeless romantic Ken's ultimate personal quest is to figure out what Bob said to Charlotte at the end of Lost in Translation. (He's been to Tokyo two times to try and find out - no luck yet).
If you've read this page, you know that "the girl" became "the wife." Ken was one lucky guy to hook this one. Jess spends most of her time pretending to laugh at Ken's (not so funny) jokes. She's no dummy though. Stints at the White House, Harvard Business School, the NFL and Goldman Sachs have prepared her to be Mom In Chief to the Deckingers' three little girls while juggling an incredible marketing career. Little known fact - Jess has some serious pipes and can sing her heart out.
Adele is the reason Ken and Jess met, and why you are reading this right now. She and Ken have been friends since they were 16 years old. They co-founded HurryDate together in New York City and then worked together through the Spark Networks acquisition. She is mostly glad that Ken and Jess found each other because she was previously his much-needed "office wife". Adele started her career in Advertising at a Madison Avenue firm, and she stayed on until recently as the last man standing of the original HurryDate crew after the acquisition. She's happily married with two little girls of her own and can't believe she's joined Ken in another one of his crazy ideas. Did you know Adele is a mean water skier and could probably win a whistling competition?
now, it's your turn.
