The future groom is a graduate of Warwick Veterans Memorial High School and Rhode Island College. He is an information technology instructor at Segue Learning Institute for Learning, Central Falls.
Joe and Marissa had met in high school but did not know each other. In his senior year during follies he and his friend were singing “All or Nothing” by O-Town and knelt down and sang to Marissa. Eight years later Marissa began coaching high school cheerleading at Warwick Vets and Joe began to coach wrestling. They began to talk and have been together for over three years. They are planning to get married in June 2015.
