Meet Arlene Chollette, fiancee of NFL star Jarvis Jenkins.
On how they first met:
Jarvis says he was scrolling through his Instagram and came across a familiar face….it was Arlene who he had seen a couple of times in Washington D.C. After some contemplation, Jarvis sent Arlene an Instagram message that contained a joke…and she shortly responded with laughter. Soon after, they exchanged information, started face timing 7 days a week, and the rest is history.
Jarvis and Arlene officially started dating on July 4th 2015. Jarvis proposed to the love of his life Arlene in Miami, Florida on March 26th, 2018.
Check out the heartfelt surprise proposal video below:
