Jérôme Lohez Gala Featured in French Morning

The Jérôme Lohez Foundation was created after the death of Robert Jérôme Lohez on 11 September, 2001 in the World Trade Center. His widow Dening Lohez decided to distribute scholarships to young Americans to study in France and young French making the journey in reverse. "I can honor my French husband's memory by helping foster Franco-American exchanges. I remain astonished by the most subtle misunderstandings internationally and the inability of people to get on the same wavelength. Life can not fully be lived unless we take advantage of all the chances to meet others."
