Daniel J. English and Carla R. Jacobs
Ralph and Joanna Jacobs of Swarthmore are pleased to announce the marriage of their daughter, Carla Rebecca Jacobs, to Daniel John English, the son of the late Richard and Beverly English of Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The couple were married on September 3 at the Church of St. Peter the Apostle in Philadelphia. A reception followed at the National Constitution Center.
Carla is a 2004 graduate of Strath Haven High School and a graduate of Colgate University. Dan graduated from the University of Richmond and received an MBA from Harvard Business School. The couple live in Chicago, where Carla is a public affairs associate for Uber Technologies and Dan is a project leader for the Boston Consulting Group.
Carla and Dan met in 2010 in Washington, D,C., where Dan was a legislative assistant for U.S. Senator John Thune and Carla was a lobbyist at a government relations firm focused on science, research, and education clients.
Carla and Dan had developed a professional relationship through meetings on science policy before running into each other a couple of times at social events around D.C. They officially started dating over Labor Day Weekend, exactly six years before their wedding.
