Haase Married His Mentor's Daughter.
How often can you dare to date your teacher's children? Well, Ernie Haase did it. Haase is married to Lisa Younce Haase, who is the daughter of Late George Younce, his former band member, and his mentor.
The Southern Gospel singer got the opportunity to join the prestigious The Cathedrals group in 1990 when his future-father-in law saw him perform at an event. George was impressed with his singing and made him a tenor vocalist in the group.
As Haase was scouted by Younce, he became like a prodigy to him. With time, the teacher-student relationship deepened so much that I Believe singer even invited Ernie to his house. While there, he had the opportunity to meet the entire Younce Family and his future wife.
Indiana native was attracted to Lisa in their first meeting only. Soon after that, the pair started dating. Thankfully, Younce did not show any objection to this affair, and the couple tied the knot after dating for a short period. The wedding took place in December 1990 in the presence of friends and family.
Haase and his wife are together for twenty-eight years. The only sadness in their life is that they were not able to have children of their own. However, they are able to fill the absence of kids by showering more love to one another.
The longtime married couple spends a love of time together. They enjoy reading and biking together. Furthermore, one of their favorite things is to travel to Chicago, which is their beloved city.
