Jefferson Parish President John Young announced this morning (Friday, Feb. 24) that he and former state Sen. Julie Quinn, R-Metairie, are officially engaged. The two have been an item, politically and personally, for several years now.
Friends of the pair know that they separated during the recent holiday season around Jan. 1, but obviously they are now back together — more than ever.
Young emailed an announcement at 7:40 a.m. Friday, saying, “Today I have exciting news and I wanted you to be the first to know! It is with great joy that I am honored to announce my engagement to Julie Quinn. Together, we are ready to join our families as one and begin this new season of life. Julie and I appreciate your continued support.”
The email goes on to quote Proverbs 18:22 — “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord.”
No wedding date was mentioned in the announcement.
