Jason Coppi (’99) and Ashley Coppi (’99)
Ashley first noticed Jason at an Alpha Tau Omega party in 1996, when Jason accidentally knocked a light off of a balcony, but quickly recovered. She thought the clumsy fraternity brother was cute. Later, Ashley and her friends attended another party where Jason and his friend were both vying for her attention. Jason eventually got the edge when he and Ashley discovered that they worked at the same restaurant. When she left the party, Ashley gave Jason a kiss on the cheek, and he was smitten. The next time the two shared a shift, Jason asked Ashley out and the rest was history. They will celebrate 22 years of marriage this year and have two children. Their daughter is a freshman at Texas State and lives in College Inn on the same floor Ashley lived on when she and Jason met.
