Jim and Neola Reese - 70 Years of Marriage

What’s it take to stay married for 70 years? Humor, forgiveness, understanding and love are just a few of the elements that have helped Rev. Dr. James Reese and his wife, Neola, live side- by-side for seven decades.

Rev. Dr. Reese has served as a minister in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) for nearly 75 years and his wife, Neola, has been right by his side. His ministry has been a selfless gift to the PC(USA), serving as a pastor for local congregations as well as a national leader in the church, including as a Minister of Specialized Interpretation for the Presbyterian Foundation.

We had the opportunity to sit down with Jim and Neola in 2021 and ask for their best marriage tips, thoughts and advice. Take five minutes to watch now HERE and enjoy this beautiful tribute to love.
