Physics graduate William Jamieson (Class of 2013) and Math major/Physics minor Jessie Deering (Class of 2013) were married June 8, 2013 at the Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville Alabama. Dr. Robert Gardner from the ETSU Math Department served as the officiant for the wedding(second picture left). Several other ETSU faculty attended, including Dr. Donald Luttermoser from Physics and Astronomy and Dr. Sandy Eagle from the Chemistry Dept (shown in 3rd picture from left), Drs. Beverly Smith and Mark Giroux from Physics and Astronomy (4th picture), Drs. Anant Godbole, Teresa Haynes, Robert Davidson, and Daryl Stephens from the Math Department. Groomsmen for the wedding included Physics majors Bryan Matt Cannon and Brandon Sexton, while bridesmaids included Physics majors Olivia Miller and Erin Middlemas. Physics major Chance Brown also attended. For lots more pictures, click here.
