She was later chosen for the third season of The Bachelorette.
Jen originally rejected both Jerry Ferris and John Paul Merritt in the finale. During the first live final rose ceremony, she chose Jerry, an art gallery director, over Meritt. Ferris proposed to Schefft, but she rejected his proposal, stating that the chemistry was not there.
Schefft ultimately married Chicago public relations executive Joe Waterman in May 2009. They have two daughters, Mae Elizabeth and Charlotte Grace.
