It’s clear the two are happily in love and are getting ready to say, “I do!”

Jenna & Brock Attended the Same College
Brock and Jenna have not publicly confirmed when they started dating, but they both started their freshman year at the same time at Iowa State University in 2018. Jenna played volleyball at school and studied kinesiology, per PEOPLE, while Brock played football for the Iowa State Cyclones.
She Is an Athlete
Jenna was a setter for the Cyclones volleyball team, and she was welcomed with open arms when she committed to playing the sport. According to a 2018 social media video shared by the team, the Iowa State University graduate opened up about her personality. Additionally, she revealed that going to the Iowa State football games was her family’s “tradition.”

“Family time’s big to me. I love hanging out with my family. … I like to volunteer. I’m around the community a lot. I like staying active. I’d say my biggest goal is to be a leader right now. It’s hard because I’d say everyone’s very intimidating to me and, as a setter, I need to have connections with everyone and relationships. So, it’s kind of hard to come in as a new setter and find everyone.”
She continued in the clip, “I hope to be a leader obviously and work hard always so I can get others to work hard, So, lead by example.”
Brock Proposed to Jenna in 2023
Brock and Jenna didn’t go public with their relationship until 2022. The following year, the NFL player proposed to Jenna in Saint Cloud, Florida, and they shared the romantic pictures to their respective Instagram accounts in July 2023.
“My Jenna girl forever. I can’t wait to be your husband and grow together in Christ. Here’s to forever babe. I love you JB!” Brock captioned his post at the time. In one photo, Brock was seen down on one knee asking Jenna the big question.
Jenna Always Supports Brock at His Games
The former volleyball player has been spotted cheering on her future husband in the stands at his games. In October 2023, Jenna shared a few snapshots directly from the field at one of Brock’s games. “Always cheering you on, babes,” she wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of them hugging.
