Jenny and Gregory DeGorsky are a husband and wife team who have been pursing their dreams for over 30 years together.
They shared their first adventure upon the great Atlantic ocean. Back in 1986 while cruising separately on the ship S.S. Norway they met for the first time, and within four days were engaged to be married. The love story was kindled by a twist of fate. Originally Gregory was not supposed to be on the Norway, rather he was booked on another NCL cruise ship.
Jenny had planned to be on the cruise with her mom to take a break and enjoy some time away on the ocean and fun in the sun. Gregory having traveled on many cruises before was with his friend who happened to work for NCL. They were scheduled to be on another cruise ship but it was overbooked was forced to change ships. Greg said, “I remember walking up to the S.S. Norway gang way having just been frantically getting reassigned. I looked up and at the top deck was this girl in a white dress with flowing black hair. I will never forget that first image emblazoned in my mind.” An amazing story coupled together out at sea with intriguing events.
Raised in Sterling Heights, Michigan has been pursuing creativity in many ways. Beginning with a career in hair styling she quick found success. This success was in a sense cut short because of getting married and deciding to have a family right away. After a number of years she found herself at Boca Raton, Museum selling products and deepening her knowledge about art. Today you can find jenny at the Detroit Institute of Art in Detroit, Michigan where she enjoys selling products around special art events such as the recent Monet exhibit.
