Jeremy Vuolo was lucky enough to marry the beautiful Jinger Duggar on Nov. 5 in a gorgeous Arkansas ceremony in front of 1,000 guests. We couldn’t be happier for Jinger and can’t wait to learn more about her new man! Get the scoop on the very handsome Jeremy, right here.
1. He’s a former soccer player.
Jeremy Vuolo, 29, played college soccer at Hartwick College and Syracuse University. After college he signed with Finnish club AC Oulu and appeared in 24 games for the team, before returning to the United States where he signed with the Major League Soccer club the New York Red Bulls in 2012. In April 2013 he signed with the NASL club the San Antonio Scorpions. However, at the beginning of the 2014 season he was an unused substitute for two matches, and then lost his place on the team.
2. He’s an ordained minister.
During his soccer days, he stepped away from the game briefly to concentrate on ministry full-time and became an ordained minister. His father is also ordained and actually officiated Jeremy and Jinger Duggar‘s wedding on Nov. 5.
3. He met Jinger through her sister.
Jeremy met Jinger in May 2015 through his friend, and now brother-in-law, Ben Seewald. Ben is married to Jinger’s sister, Jessa. “I was initially friends with Ben Seewald and Jessa, and it was through them that I got to meet Jinger,” Jeremy told PEOPLE. Right place at the right time!
4. He and Jinger share the same spiritual values.
After meeting through Jessa and Ben, the couple “had the opportunity to go on a missions trip together,” Jinger told PEOPLE. “It was there that I really saw his heart and really admired his character.” How great is it that the pair have found such an important part of their lives to bond over?
5. He proposed to Jinger in New York City just a month after they started courting.
Jinger and Jeremy started officially courting on June 21 and on July 26 they made the official announcement that they were engaged. Jeremy proposed to Jinger while they were on a special trip to New York City, which was caught on film for Jill & Jessa: Counting On. We’re wondering if they will change it to Jill, Jessa & Jinger: Counting On!
