Jessica Stull, general manager of Cento, has more than 15 years of experience in the hospitality industry and has been with Cameron Mitchell Restaurants (CMR) since 2015.
Before working at CMR, Stull studied Hospitality Management at The Ohio State University. She began her career in hospitality working as a server and bartender at Colonial Golfer’s Club. She also was a server, bartender and intern at Roosters for a time. Stull joined CMR when she started as a server at Hudson 29 Upper Arlington and later moved her way up to dining room manager. From there, she continued her career at The Pearl Short North where she was promoted to general manager, then later moved on to El Segundo.
Stull is incredibly passionate about delivering genuine hospitality to guests, whether it be in the restaurant or in her home with friends and family. Because she has always loved cooking and dining out, being a part of the restaurant industry comes naturally to her.
Her favorite thing about working for CMR is the people. Stull grew up in a small town in Ohio with a strong sense of community and family and has found a similar sense of community with CMR. She’s grateful for an amazing team and is focused on guiding them through encouragement, inspiration and engagement.
“I have learned that communication is key and you need to give the best of yourself to your Associates,” says Stull. “Always be open and honest and learn something new every day to grow with your team.”
Stull resides in Italian Village. When she’s not working, she enjoys cooking, spending time with her nephews, trying new restaurants and traveling. Her favorite CMR dishes are the Shanghai Seabass from Hudson 29 and the Tenderloin from Martini Modern Italian.
Chef Jon began his career in the restaurant industry over 20 years ago and immediately fell in love with the creativity, the energy, and the controlled chaos. Although he started in the front of house, it very quickly dawned on him that he was on the wrong side of the line. At that point it went from being a job that he really enjoyed, to something that he saw himself doing for the rest of his life. Deutschle’s 16-year career with CMR began in 2007 as a pantry cook at Marcella’s Short North. From there his obsession with Italian cooking and becoming a chef only intensified. He rose through the ranks at Marcella’s, being promoted to Executive Chef in 2010. In 2017, Chef Jon became Executive Chef at The Pearl Short North. In 2023, Chef Jon was chosen to be Executive Chef at Cento, CMR’s new Italian concept in German Village. He is thrilled to be bringing his passion and creativity to Cento.
In his free time, Chef Jon is an avid cyclist and raving fan of The Ohio State University Buckeye Football team. He loves reading cookbooks, researching cuisines and techniques, and teaching his family how to cook.
