Michael popped the question July 21 at the McGrail Winery in Livermore. Close friends and family members gathered to watch him play an acoustic show that turned into a proposal when he pulled Jessica on stage and sang to her.
Jessica graduated from West High School in 2006 and is now a preschool teacher at Tracy Kindercare. Her family — parents Debbie and Dave Mayhugh and brother Shawn Mayhugh — also lives in town. She is granddaughter to Dolores Hicks of Bethel Island, Clarene Mayhugh of Dublin and Dave Mayhugh of San Jose. Jessica is great-granddaughter to Sarah Murillo of San Leandro.
Michael, owner of Mike Huggins Construction, graduated from Tracy High School in 2000. Mike has a 6-year-old daughter, Makenna Huggins. His father, Bill Huggins, lives in Pleasanton and his mother, Ann Marie Romao, resides in San Jose. He has four siblings, Aundrea West, Antoinette Hampton, Jesse Huggins and Ana Romao, all of Tracy.
