A Diamonds Direct Love Story


After 25 years of being apart from one another, Jason Thornton, 42, and Jana Clark, 41, knew from the moment they reunited that they were meant to be. The journey of these high school sweethearts wasn’t easy, but their love survived through it all. This is their love story…

How did you two meet?

Him: We met in high school. She was so beautiful- we had an instant connection.

Her: High school! He had the best smile, and he was so friendly! He and I used to meet twice a day at designated locations in school and exchange letters to each other.

What is your favorite thing about your partner? Why?

Him: Everything! She’s sweet, funny, gorgeous, an amazing cook. She’s my best friend.

Her: He is my best friend. He loves to talk and cuddle. He makes me feel beautiful and loved- always. He has a way of making me laugh and smile. I’ve known him for over 25 years, and yet it stills feel like just yesterday we met. He’s just amazing.

When did you realize you had met “the one,” that you wanted to spend the rest of your life with?

Him: Immediately after we reconnected.

Her: Instantly when we reconnected- no doubt!

Can you each tell me about the proposal from your own perspective?

Him: I wanted to be different and I wanted to catch her off guard with my proposal!

Her: It was such a surprise! We knew we were going to get married, but I didn’t know he had ordered me a custom, stunning ring. I had expected him to propose at the end of the year. He set up an elegant, romantic candlelight setting on our back deck. He even made a small picnic for the two of us- then, he got down on one knee, and asked me to marry him!

Him: Wonderful. The salesperson was friendly and knew the craft. They helped me find the perfect stone and a unique ring that fit her style.

Her: My ring was stunning- it was perfect! He gets the credit for picking it out.

What is the best piece of advice you’ve been given about love/relationships?

Him: Always communicate and forgive.

Her: Communicate!

Now that you’ve found “the one,” what advice would you give to someone else about love?

Him: Be steadfast. Don’t give up. Do not settle.

Her: It does happen! At my age, I hadn’t given up but I had spent many years with unsuccessful dating. I prayed for a man that I knew I deserved. God had a plan, he just took 25 years to give us our “happily ever after”.

What are you most looking forward to about spending the rest of your lives together?

Him: Each and everyday together. I can’t wait for the laughs, the fun, and the joy that awaits us.

Her: I can’t wait to start our journey as husband and wife. I’ve waited 41 years for him- he made it worth it.
