Andrew Warren Tolman relaxed into a lounge chair next to Jenna Lynn Santoro on July 20, 2019 as the weekly Saturday beach club party was winding down at Gurney’s Montauk Resort in Montauk, N.Y.
“Eating, drinking, running into the ocean, it was a perfect day,” said Mr. Tolman, who had met her briefly earlier that afternoon.
Mr. Tolman, 33, now a vice president in the capital markets group in New York at Houlihan Lokey, an investment bank, graduated with a bachelor’s degree in political science from Amherst College.
Both exhausted, they chatted over rosé wine as they gazed at the ocean and people-watched for the next hour. They also exchanged numbers. A little before dinnertime, via text, he invited her to join him and his friends at Ruschmeyer’s, a restaurant and bar, that evening for drinks, which overlapped with her dinner.
