Scott Mitsuo Ueda, Jr. entered this world on November 28, 1992 and departed on March 24, 2019 at the age of 26.

Scott was, and continues to be, a quintessential member of the community where he was born and raised: Venice, California. From his publications in the Venice Beachhead to his efforts that led to the Japanese-American memorial marker on Venice and Lincoln, his contributions have made a lasting impression. In addition to being an acknowledged community contributor, he was an all-around gifted and talented soul and known amongst his family, friends, co-workers, and acquaintances as a wordsmith, talented musician, creative and bold chef, and charismatic young man. At a young age, he demonstrated an inherent aptitude for music and learned to master many instruments throughout his lifetime. Impressively, he became a Corporate Executive Chef at the unprecedented age of 25 and was even nominated by Forbes, “30 under 30” in his industry. His culinary creations were recognized by respected food critics and featured in esteemed publications, including LA Weekly, Eater LA, Vogue, LA Times, and more. Everyday adventures with Scott included inspired or organic quotes and quips, mischief and tomfoolery, musical demonstrations, and endless laughter. To know Scott was to love him.

Scott is survived by his parents Scott & Melinda, his sisters, Nina, Nikka & Jessica, his wife, Karena, his two children, Juniper & Ace, a large & loving family, and countless friends. Even though his time in this world was brief, he made a lasting impact. The world has suffered a great loss, but Scott continues to live on through cherished memories, which will forever bring a smile on the faces of those who had the pleasure of knowing him. Scott would want us to find comfort in knowing that he lived a full life, only to be described by one of his favorite authors, Hunter S. Thompson, “Faster, faster, faster, until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death.”
