We’ve all heard the stories about how Jake Carpenter met his wife Donna, but now, thanks to the New York Times we get the whole story directly from Donna herself (including all the other things she’s done in the meantime).
I GREW up in Greenwich, Conn., and was lucky enough to travel when I was young. My family traveled to Europe many summers, and we skied different mountains in the United States in the winters. I was 18 when I met Jake Carpenter during a New Year’s Eve party at a tavern in Vermont. He was just starting what would become Burton Snowboards, and I was studying political science at Columbia University.
The rest is Burton Snowboards history. Click the link for the rest of another American marriage success story.
