    Scott was a friend, boss, and mentor. His expertise in engineering and his sense of humor made him a great person to work with on projects and he always kept things fun around the office. I learned so much from him and always appreciated his ability to “tell it like it is”. He was one of the most knowledgeable people I ever had the pleasure of working with and impact of him not being around is difficult to fathom. The people of the State of Minnesota were fortunate to have such a dedicated public servant. He will be greatly missed.

    I first met Scott while working together, and I will always remember our elevator rides. Despite his position as my boss, he had a remarkable ability to put others at ease, engaging in friendly conversation that brightened my day. His approachable nature made him easy to talk to, and his sense of humor brought joy to our workplace.

    Scott’s leadership and camaraderie will be deeply missed by all of us at the DOT. He leaves behind a legacy of kindness and professionalism that will resonate for years to come.

    My thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time. Rest in peace, Scott. You will be missed.
