Condolence & Memory Journal

Mr Scott was a wonderful man. Deepest sympathies to Wanda and Pam.

I worked for Mr. Scott at CPPC. When he first came there as the new mill manager, he showed up on a Saturday afternoon and was walking around the mill introducing himself to everyone he saw. This is what he said after he shook my hand and asked about me and my family (understand that I was just an entry-level production technician at the time), " My name is Scott Jenkins and everyone at this place answers to me. My main goal is that you go home to your family safe everyday. I want you to be careful and enjoy your work. If anyone ever asks you to do something that you feel is unsafe, you come and see me and I will solve that problem for you." Then he gave me one of those big 'ole smiles and walked off. From that moment on, it was a joy to work for him. My prayers are with your family.

I was sad to learn that Scott has passed. Pam and Wanda, I am grateful for the time that my family was able to spend with yours. Scott and Shirley were wonderful hosts. I enjoyed all the fishing and I always appreciated your dad's interest in what I was doing in Scouts and his general encouragement. I know this has been a long road and I continue to think of you both in your loss.

So sorry to hear of Scott's passing. He was a great student at Harris, a person who was admired by those who attended school with him. He was a hard worker and tender, dedicated husband to my beloved sister in law Shirley Hammett Jenkins. He was all of the things he that made a good man. My condolences to Glenda, Pam ,Wanda and their families. It has been many years since life moved in different directions but I never forgot the joy of his company and the sound of his laughter. May God comfort and bless all of you as you go through this loss.
