Jaye Scholl, a longtime Barron’s staffer who was its West Coast editor, died this weekend.

Scholl worked for Barron’s from 1982 to 2002.

She was also a contributing writer for Alpha and Absolute Return magazines and served as communications director for a hedge fund marketing firm.

Gail Gregg, a classmate of Scholl’s at Columbia, said in an email:

Jaye was so smart, so curious and so principled; she burnished the reputation of business reporting. She was also a kind and supportive colleague, who generously helped friends find employment and freelance gigs

Jaye was a renaissance woman, working as a hard-hitting journalist while raising three creative and successful children; throwing herself into the Jane Austen society; studying Copperplate calligraphy and desert gardening; and on and on…Her long and fulfilling marriage to Charlie Bohlen was model of love, support and intellectual compatibility.

She is a contributing author to “Writing About Business” and “A Guide to Economics and Business Reporting,” both published by Columbia University Press.

She was a Knight-Bagehot Fellow at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Business and earned a B.A. in history from Skidmore College.
