The company is known for their heartwarming commercials that often tell a story. Their latest tear-jerker tells the real-life love story of single mom, Jessica Langevin, and single dad, Marcus Decredico, of Concord, California. They first met 27 years ago in kindergarten. Somehow, over the years, fate kept bringing them together.
Jessica’s husband was killed in combat in Afghanistan, leaving her widowed. She was 8-months pregnant with their daughter Zoe at the time. "I didn't think love could be possible for me again," she says in the video. But fate had other plans.They most recently met up when Jessica began running an in-home daycare.
"Marcus got in touch because he was looking for childcare for his girls," she told The Huffington Post. "I was so excited to hear from him and our connection sparked again. We just keep finding our way back to each other."
A mom at the girls' school heard that Extra Gum was looking for real-life love stories and connected Marcus with the company. Together they orchestrated a surprise marriage proposal for Jessica. This is incredibly touching. I wasn't kidding when I said 'grab the tissues!'
