Jessie E. Cooper1942-2014Memorial Fund
Jessie E. Cooper, artist, entrepreneur, realtor, Interior Designer, world traveler and businesswoman, believed in the importance of beauty in our lives. Her motto was "aesthetics are everything," and to the very end, promoting the enhancement of our lives was uppermost in her mind. Sister of Ariel founder, Lora Lynn Snow, and quietly Involved in the Ariel project from its very inception, Jessie's influence can be seen from the moment one walks through the Ariel's front doors. Her drapery design for the main stage was created when restoration was but a concept and her influence continued through the current office and construction project. Always striving for excellence, she was not one to compromise quality in design. Jessie has passed on, but her presence will impact us for years to come. The Ariel-Ann Carson Dater Cultural & Performing Arts Centre and The Ohio Valley Symphony are 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations, Federal Tax ID# 31-1273779
