In the TIS Family
Carolyn Standler-Reed and David Reed are delighted to share that their son, Jacob Reed, is engaged to Heather Sundell, daughter of Gary and Debbie Sundell. Jacob's grandma, Edith Standler, is also very excited. Despite being acquaintances during their college years at USC, it was several years later that the two reconnected over each other's comedic Facebook posts. An October wedding is being planned.
