The Wright State University Foundation has appointed two new trustees to its board, effective July 1, 2024.

He retired from DP&L in 2010 and moved to the nonprofit world as a counselor for Dayton SCORE, chief financial officer at WYSO Public Radio, CFO of the Dayton Society of Natural History/Boonshoft Museum of Discovery and, since 2019, as CFO of the Family Medicine Education Consortium.

She is responsible for the oversight of the Grand Lake Hospice and Joint Township District Memorial Hospital volunteer programs. Jacobs also acts as a liaison for the PRIDE Club, the employee giving program at Joint Township District Memorial Hospital.

She serves on the boards of the St. Marys Rotary Club and the Western Ohio Educational Foundation at the Wright State University–Lake Campus.

 “We are honored to welcome Doug and Julie to the Wright State University Foundation Board of Trustees,” said Scott Rash, president and CEO of the Wright State University Foundation. “We appreciate their willingness to volunteer their time and talents. They will provide outstanding service to the foundation, the university and our students.”

With the arrival of the new trustees comes the departure of Pam vonMatthiessen and Bill Diederich, who will begin serving as emeriti trustees.

“We are grateful to Pam and Bill for their outstanding contributions over the years,” said Rash. “They both have a tremendous passion for Wright State and our students. Even though Pam and Bill will no longer be serving on the foundation board, they will continue to support our students as emeriti trustees and serve as ambassadors for our great university.”
