Dear LesLee and the whole Snelson Family,

I was so sad to hear about Scott's passing. I am grateful to have met him and be part of the CTE family that knows of the wonderful work he did! I am also very grateful to LesLee and their combined contribution to Education in Utah. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this time of grief and sadness.

Much love,
Andrea Curtin

Scott was a beautiful, big-hearted man. When I had the honor of visiting Danny & Mashinka in SLC and meeting the Snelson clan, many of the highlights came from Scott’s generosity in showing me around—from the remarkable school he took such pride in to the community he so deeply engaged to the profound warmth of his family and friends. I think still of the joy in just spending time with LesLee and him in their beautiful backyard, chatting the night away. There’s a big cherub smile missing in the world right now. He’ll be deeply missed. And, of course, so much of him lives on in his wife, his wonderful children, and the lives of so many that he changed for the better.

When Scott worked in USBE/CTE, there were two Scott's in CTE at the same time --- "good Scott " and "bad Scott." This Scott would obviously be the "good Scott." How could it be otherwise?? BTW, the other Scott was also top drawer :-)

Where does one begin? When I heard of his passing, I felt a wall of grief hit me --- and still does. Though my involvement with "good Scott" was not a tremendous amount, I always felt his drive for giving and being the BEST.

I wish LesLee and all others the very, very best and give you my deepest sympathies. I cannot even begin to imagine. Since I cannot, may God bless you with strength and capacity to carry this heavy load. I also wish you an incredible reunion some GREAT DAY in the future.

We are saddened to learn of Scott's unexpected passing, yet feel fortunate to have shared in so many parts of his life. We are definitely better people for having experienced his love for people, his work ethic, his integrity and his genuine character. Scott was amazing and loved by anyone and everyone who took time to get to know him. Going to miss you buddy, especially on those warm weekdays when golfing is in order!

All our love to LesLee and the family at this sacred time.
