The only Polish thing David Wesolowski inherited is the name. He is one of the smartest, most business-savvy guys south of the Mason Dixon. He’s done so much with what he’s been given and has constantly been the reason some of his friends and family are successful today. Being the epitome of a good steward, however, has not kept him from also being one of the funniest guys I know.  He’s married to a lovely lady and recently had his first child.


Hilmar Jonathan Skagfield is my 5th brother. He’s one of those guys–no matter how long we are apart–we pick up right where we left off. He pursues me and doesn’t let me get away with mediocrity. He was an assistant designer for Billy Reid and has an eye for design. He currently lives in LA where he is up to all kinds of good.

Ben Wesolowski is the youngest of nine children. He’s outgoing and loyal. He’s got a heart of gold and is always looking at things in a different way. He adds creativity to everything; a living example that goodness and truth ought to be coupled with beauty. His name’s Ben and he likes to party.

Mike O’malley, our officiant, has  the most beautiful family. He and his wife Nicole have three daughters, a son, and a dog. They live their life by faith and and are always up to something. He was a officer in the US army and met Nicole at Bible college. Their passion for Christ, family, and mission make them the perfect role models for what Megan and I would like to be. Oh yeah, and they’re a ton of fun!

Matt Wesolowski has a natural athletic ability. He’s reserved and optimistic and makes other people his age look like children. Mature beyond his years, Matt will work without any pay because he knows it’s the right thing to do. He’s easygoing and saves complaining for everyone else.

Benn Koljonen has been wringing life for all it’s worth. His car has two hundred and eighty thousand miles on it and almost every mile stands for an adventure. He has a radical love for nature and is a shining example of what a steward ought to be.  If you’ve met Benn, he’s served you in some way.

He’s not really Korean. But sometimes auto-correct will change his name to that. Jordan Miller is one of the best men I know. He’s keen on adventure, thoughtfulness, and a girl named Hannah. He enjoys a good stout and good company. I hope he moves to Colorado: I want my kids to call him uncle.

Tony Wesolowski is the king of misadventures, and my life would have been boring without him. He loves to shoot anything that can be eaten and will eat just about anything at least once. He’s as loyal as loyal can get. He’s the guy you want beside you in an alleyway or on a battle field.

Brad Mcdonald is a visionary and a best friend. When I met him he was making an admission that he’d never completed a book throughout highschool. Now he’s one of the smartest people I know. Balancing questions, answers, and down to earth honest living, Brad has challenged me to be the man I ought to be. I’m honored to have him standing next to me on my wedding day.

Ty Herndon is a perfect balance of seriousness and fun.  We were roommates during the three hardest months of my life.  Hailing from Florida, he just returned from a semester abroad at Oxford University. He’s super smart, a great conversationalist, and has challenged me on a regular basis. I may not have made it through that semester without him. Quite the man.
