David Hertz and Beth Thomas Hertz are celebrating their 23rd wedding anniversary today.
David was at the BJ for 15 years, Beth for 4 years.
“Happy 23rd anniversary to my utterly fascinating and captivating wife, Beth Thomas Hertz. It's easy to lose track of how much fun life is with someone when you are rushing to complete the daily tasks tugging at you. But we are having a wonderful time with amazing, huggable kids! Thank you Beth for all you do for me, Alyssa Sandra Hertz and Joshua Daniel Hertz. Not to mention our extended family and community. You are the best and I love you very much”
They had an office romance, the “cute redhead copy editor” and David. Their wedding was at the Civic Theatre where their BJ friends showed up to applaud.
David left the BJ to become a vice president in the media relations department of Dix & Eaton in Cleveland. At 44 E. Exchange Street David was night metro editor, deputy business editor, region editor, business editor, metro editor and enterprise editor. He came to the BJ after 5 years in Knight-Ridder’s Boca Raton, Florida newspaper.
Beth was at the BJ from February 1991 to November 1995 in several jobs including page layout and design. She became managing editor in the Communications Department at the Cleveland Clinic. After six years, she left to be a full-time freelance writer.
They live in Copley, where Alyssa and Josh attend school.
