David is a family man and is currently married to Jill Wagner. So, how did Jill Wanger meet David Lemanowicz? The pair met when Jill was 17 years old, and David was 20 at the time. Speaking to Hallmark, they shared their love story. She said that they had dated for a while when they were younger and then reconnected later in life. During the first time, they went on three dates, and on their first date, Jill snuck out of her home to meet him.
She explained that after the third date, he never heard from him again until they rran into each other 17 years later in Afghanistan. She was there on a USO tour, and he had been deployed with the Air Force. He said that there was a morale event, and that was when he saw her.
'I hadn't seen her in 17 years', he shared. The picture for the USO event didn't look like her, but the name was the same, so he looked her up. He then walked up to her when she was signing autographs and confirmed that it was indeed her. There was, however, a hiccup to their story; at the time they met in Afghanistan, they were both seeing other people. However, in 2016, Jill broke up with the person she was dating, and coincidentally again, she ran into David when she was having dinner with her friends.
After that, Jill Wagner and David Lemanowicz dated for a while before getting engaged in July 2016. Finally, the Jill and David Lemanowicz wedding happened in April 2017.
