Jon Hatcher and Katie Shiro
Alumni, Katie Shiro and Jon Hatcher first met at the University of Illinois where they both played on the ultimate frisbee teams. After graduation in 2012, Katie was playing on a mixed club ultimate team that needed players, and Jon agreed to fill in for a tournament. That tournament sparked 6 years of dating before Jon proposed.
In October 2018, Katie and Jon flew to Chicago for Jon to run the Chicago marathon. The day before the marathon, Jon surprised Katie at La Colombe in Chicago, one of the couple’s favorite places to spend time together, with flowers, pictures, and a proposal. That night, Jon surprised Katie with dinner with family and friends.
The couple currently reside in San Francisco where Jon is in his 3rd year of law school at UC Hastings, and Katie is a software engineer at Airbnb.
