Artisha and Jonathan met in 1999 at the age of 14 in their ninth grade teacher's class. In 2002, two years later, they began dating. They hit it off from the beginning and became inseperable. She was a cheerleader and he was a football player, a quintessential high school couple.
After high school, Artisha attended Francis Marion University in Florence, South Carolina and Jonathan attended Essex County College in Jersey City, New Jersey. Throughout the college years, they strived to continue their relationship and remain a couple. After five years of long distance dating, they broke up. However, as fate would have it, they rekindled their relationship a year-and-a-half later.
Artisha moved to New Jersey to persue her dream of acting and the relationship began to flourish again. On May 28, 2011, Jonathan proposed to Artisha and she said "YES" immediately! Their union will be celebrated on June 22, 2013.
