A Slice Of Love: Jessica and Juan

At the age of 15, Jessica Kruger’s life took a profound turn when she became a quadriplegic due to a life-altering workplace injury that resulted in a spinal cord injury. Her injury ignited many changes, including a new passion for baking and cake decorating. However, one aspect of her character remained unaltered: her stubbornness. To Jessica, it’s a superpower. Soon enough, her persistence to prove others wrong and defy expectations led to the creation of her thriving business venture, The Stubborn Baker, which specializes in baking and custom cake decorating.

Jessica’s newfound confidence led to another life change when she met Juan, a restless and soft-spoken chemical engineer from Columbia. He was looking for someone who shared the same sense of devotion to family and friends as he did. Juan found exactly what he was looking for in Jessica. And the two have been together ever since.

So what are the ingredients for an incredible love story? You’ll just have to listen to find out.
