I enjoyed seeing Scott as a regular swimmer at Westminster. He always had a joke or interesting fact to share. I would also let him know when I would be running in one of the Simsbury road running races. The courses passes right by his house. I will miss him.

Dear Scott,

You will be missed!! We worked together for many years at CG and then many more at The Kaleel Jamison Consulting Group. Always loved your energy and humor. Loved our many, many conversations and talking about life together. Thanks for being in my wedding 34 years ago. You were special and an important person in my life. Rest well.
