HOME HERO 1170x768 2x Store Crossed Lovers Gabriel Jess

Meet the Store-crossed lovers

Jess and Gabriel met whilst working in one of our stores.

Jess and Gabriel met back in September 2015,  while working in separate departments at John Lewis & Partners. Their eyes met over the escalators in the department store and the rest is history.

"We’re both originally from opposite ends of the city, but our love for working with people and bringing to life shopping experiences brought us together – literally under one roof."

Collectively, they've worked for the partnership for 15 years as sales assistants. In that time they have had two beautiful girls, Florence and Imogen.


"Who’d have thought you could find the job you love and the person you love in one go?”
