#DearStuartScott Memorializes The ESPN Anchor A Year After His Death



On Jan. 4, 2015, ESPN sportscaster Stuart Scott — arguably one of the most familiar faces at the “worldwide leader in sports” — succumbed to cancer.

On Monday, one year after his death, Scott’s daughters, Taelor and Sydni, composed a heartfelt love letter and video with the hashtag #DearStuartScott in remembrance of their father.

“I would like to thank him for liking me. For all the times people haven’t liked me, he really liked my personality. He said, ‘You’re my favorite person,’” Sydni said.

Other ESPN personalities and public figures followed suit, sharing memories of Scott on social media.




Scott’s battle with cancer was very public, and even in the midst of his treatment, he showed strength by continuing to work and continuing to fight.

While accepting the Jimmy V Award at the 2014 ESPY Awards, Scott told the crowd: “When you die, it does not mean that you lose to cancer. You beat cancer by how you live, why you live and in the manner in which you live.”
