Weekly Spotlight: Jill Yu and Francis Yu

Weekly Spotlight: Jill Yu and Francis Yu

Since it’s the month of love, we wanted to give our weekly spotlight to two people who met through FYP, Jill Yu and her husband, Francis Yu! Here is their story!

“Our romance started in a very typical Washingtonian way — at a networking event. For us it just so happened to be at one of FYP’s networking happy hours back in June 2011. I remember it was at Arlington Rooftop in Courthouse. We both were invited by other FYP members; in fact, we were close to not attending. Francis was studying from the bar exam, and he desperately needed a break. And I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go because I had just arrived in DC for a summer internship; I didn’t really know anyone and felt a little shy about doing this whole networking thing. Fortunately we both showed up, our good friend Iris introduced us, and we soon learned that we were both aspiring lawyers. Next thing I know, Francis invites me to his birthday party that weekend. Throw in a long-distance relationship and my giant move from the west coast to the east coast, and the rest is history. Four years later, we said, “I do!”

We are so happy you two met through FYP! Here’s to forever! — with Since it’s the month of love, we wanted to give our weekly spotlight to two people who met through FYP, Jill and her husband, Francis! Here is their story!
