Jennifer Chrisler and Cheryl Jacques: Most Captivating Couple

Our staff was tickled pink to discover an article in Go
listing our Executive Director Jennifer Chrisler and
her partner Cheryl Jacques as one of the most captivating lesbian
couples of 2008. We couldn’t agree more!

The article states:

Jennifer and Cheryl met almost 15 years ago when
Jennifer got involved in Cheryl’s campaign for state senate. They
were friends for five years before they started dating. As the
Executive Director of the Family Equality Council (formerly Family
Pride), Jennifer fights for the rights of all loving families,
regardless of blood relation or sexual orientation. In addition to
being a lawyer, Cheryl is the former head of the Human Rights
Campaign. They are the proud parents of two sons, Tom and Tim, age
five. “We love spending time with our kids, playing checkers, go
fish and Connect Four. For gown-up fun, we love going to estate
sales to find treasures, and taking long walks together,” says
Jennifer. Their secret: “We try to remember to attack our problems
instead of each other. Whenever we face adversity in our lives, we
remain focused on what we are trying to solve instead of getting
angry with each other about the situation we’re in. It also helps
to have a good sense of humor, and to laugh together
