NEW YORK — Jesse W. Dean, a former copy chief at WWD, died last Thursday at the Jewish Home & Hospital in The Bronx, according to his wife, Diana. He was 89.
Dean worked for about 35 years at WWD’s parent company, Fairchild Publications, from the early Forties through the mid-Seventies. He started as a copy editor at WWD, where he was eventually promoted to copy chief. He later served in that capacity at Fairchild’s Supermarket News and Home Furnishing News publications.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
