If you lived in Ohio in 2013 then you were a part year resident in Ohio and any income you received while actually in Ohio is taxable to Ohio. If any other state taxed it too, Ohio would give you a credit for that on your Ohio return.
This goes the same for 2014. You were a Part Year resident again because you left Ohio. Any income you received while a resident (Jan -April 2014) is taxable to Ohio.
Did the 2 tax preparers tell you why you did not have to report this on your Ohio return?
In general, unemployment compensation included in federal adjusted gross income is taxable to Ohio. For taxable year 2014, the total unemployment compensation paid to you in 2014 and included in federal adjusted gross income is taxable.
The above are both from the FAQ on Ohio tax revenue website.
