ABOUT THE CRAIN FAMILY
HOW IT ALL GOT STARTED...
Jesse and Becky met in high school in the town of Boulder, Co where they both were raised. They moved to Austin, TX to attend college (Jesse at University of TX, Becky at Texas State University in San Marcos). Jesse transferred to Houston where he was on full scholarship and was the starting shortstop and closing pitcher for San Jacinto Junior College. He then transferred to the University of Houston on scholarship and was named All American Short Stop his Junior Year and was also their closer. Becky and Jesse continued their relationship though Becky stayed in Austin continuing her college education, working and coaching competitive soccer.
Jesse was drafted by the Minnesota Twins after his junior year of college. Becky and Jesse were married in 2004 while he was making his way through the minor league system of the Minnesota Twins. They would go on to have 3 healthy, happy, and beautiful children. Hunter (10), Avery (8), and Caleb (5). The kids keep Becky and Jesse busy as they are all involved in multiple activities including ice hockey, flag football, Little League Baseball, basketball, gymnastics and drum lessons. Though they reside in Scottsdale, AZ now, they spend a great amount of time visiting their family and enjoying time at their home in Boulder, CO when they can. They love to travel as a family and feel very fortunate for all that Jesse's career has provided and all of the love and support over the years from their friends, family and fans.
