Ann Schottenstein Deshe

Thanks to a lifelong friendship, Ann Schottenstein Deshe (BS 1978 Textiles & Clothing) joined the 100 Women campaign. When Brooke Goodman Cohen (BS 1978 Textiles & Clothing) said, “I would love for the two of us to be on the wall together,” Ann Deshe agreed. After graduation, Ann moved to New York where she worked in retailing and met her husband. Soon, the couple would move to her hometown of Columbus, Ohio, where their four children were born and the Schottensteins had built a nationally-recognized retail enterprise. Made through the Ann and Ari Deshe Foundation, which supports health, Jewish organizations, children and youth services, her 100 Women gift established the Ann Schottenstein Deshe Fund for Human Ecology.
