In Memory of Alec Kesheshian

On January 25, 2024, Seaver College student, Alec Kesheshian, tragically passed away. Alec was a vibrant member of the Pepperdine community, and had already begun to make his mark on the world as a fashion entrepreneur. Alec’s work has been featured in publications such as Forbes, London Daily Post, America Daily Post, and Disrupt Magazine.

A graduate of Campbell Hall in Studio City, California, Kesheshian was a Los Angeles native and fashion entrepreneur who derived creative inspiration from the rich designs and patterns of different cultures. He was the owner of God’s Dream, a lifestyle clothing company he started at the age of 16 that was inspired by his travels to Italy and Japan. Kesheshian opened the God’s Dream brick-and-mortar store on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles in 2020, and his work has been featured in publications such as Forbes, London Daily Post, American Daily Post, and Disrupt Magazine.

Alec's impact on the Pepperdine community was immeasurable. As a student majoring in advertising, he engaged passionately with his academic pursuits, leaving an indelible mark on the campus with his enthusiasm and commitment to excellence. “I am deeply saddened to hear the news,” shared professor Wangari Njathi, assistant professor of integrated marketing communication at Seaver College. “Alec was a vibrant presence in my class, always smiling and answering questions.” His presence in classrooms, social events, and extracurricular activities contributed significantly to the spirit of Pepperdine. 

The memory of Alec will continue to influence and inspire those who knew him. Alec Kesheshian will be remembered as a creative mind and a compassionate soul who left an enduring impact on the Pepperdine community. Alec is survived by his father, Vartan; mother, Galia; and sister, Galina (’19), a Seaver College alumna. In honor of Alec’s memory, Pepperdine has created the Alec Kesheshian Memorial Fund.
