Jamie and Courtney Rand were born and raised in Illinois, about an hour apart from one another. They met while teaching middle school in the Chicago suburbs. Within a year and a half they married and moved across the country to Newport. Jamie is the Publisher of the Newport News-Times. Courtney is the PR & Sponsorship Manager at the Newport Chamber of Commerce. They decided to take on the challenge of Dancing with the Coastal Stars to help a worthy organization and have a little fun in the process. Courtney took dance classes as a child but for Jamie this is a brand new experience. They are planning to work hard so they can surprise everyone with their new moves!
