“It’s gut-wrenching," Emerson's father, Jeff Weingart, told the local news outlet of the couple's deaths.

"Somebody saw them. Somebody saw them. I don’t care, you don’t pull something like that off. I can’t believe that it was just her and him in the bar. So somebody saw them, and somebody had to give a description of them, and somebody had to see the car when he drove away, and they better find him," he added of the suspect or suspects of the shooting.

According to a joint obituary, the couple got married in June 2023.

Emerson was a department manager at a grocery store, and Gina also worked at Wisconsin Vision Associates. They loved to fish together and Emerson was an avid sports fan, while Gina enjoyed karaoke.
