Ernst, Johnson engaged

Marshall and Barbara Ernst of Windsor, Colo., wish to announce the engagement of their daughter, Melissa J. Ernst, to Capt. Jeremy A. Johnson.

Melissa lives in Aspen, and has her bachelor’s of science from Ohio State University, and an MBA in marketing and master’s degree in education from Colorado State University.

After changing careers from corporate marketing into education, Melissa was stationed in Napoli, Italia, during her student teaching assignment on the U.S. military base before accepting employment with the business and marketing education department at Aspen High School.

Jeremy has a bachelor’s of science from Portland State University, and his master’s degree from Touro University. As a member of the United States Air Force, Jeremy recently completed a tour abroad stationed in Thule, Greenland, and has also been sent on assignment to Alaska, Norway, Singapore and Diego Garcia (Indian Ocean) while stationed in Colorado Springs. In January, Jeremy will separate from the Air Force to switch career paths into the health care industry, serving the Roaring Fork Valley.

Both Melissa and Jeremy were raised on hobby farms, sharing a love for animals and nature. They will reside in Aspen where they hope to develop their careers while pursuing their passion for the outdoors.

Their wedding will be held in June of 2009 in the Grand Cayman Islands.
