While sad, the news isn't particularly shocking considering their rollercoaster summer, where cheating rumors surfaced a mere month after the announcement of their official engagement.
Emily tells People it was a "difficult and heartbreaking decision" to end things with the Salt Lake City-based entrepreneur and they "tried their best" but are at "different points" in their lives.
Jef' statement was a little more senitmental, even going so far as to say he'd never loved anyone as much as Emily.
"Emily is the best person and mom I have ever met. She opened up her world to me and I fell in love with her, [her daughter] Ricki, her family and the Hendricks," he said. "Emily will always have a special place in my heart. I don't regret a single second I spent with her or Ricki. They both have been a huge part of my life. Who knows what tomorrow will bring but we are moving on to the next chapter of our lives."
Are you surprised they ended their engagement?
