Stuart Scott’s Daughters Share Emotional Video One Year After Father’s Passing



Today, January 4, marks the one year anniversary of Stuart Scott’s passing and the daughters of the late ESPN host are remembering their father with an emotional video and touching letter.

In a clip titled Dear World, Taelor, 20, and Sydni Scott, 16, open up about Scott being an amazing father. “My dad was always the sports guy,” Taelor explained. “He went to all my games and he was always there on the sidelines with critiques and congratulations.”

She added, “Just the excitement he had about me playing soccer, I had never seen him happier.”

Sydni shared her father’s support of passion of photography. “He showed me how to load film into the camera … That was the first thing I remember about taking pictures.”

Alongside the video, the ladies shared a touching letter that read:

Dear Dad,

Growing up we thought all Dads worked “inside the television.” This last year, we realized the full impact you’ve had on the world, and how important you were to so many. A whirlwind year of appearances and accepting awards on your behalf, Lifetime Achievement Awards, Hall of Fame Inductions, your book launch and even a visit to the White House — has given us great insight into the mark you left during your lifetime. We are truly grateful for the opportunity to meet many people whom you profoundly impacted, share our grief and our memories while giving back on your behalf and continuing the legacy you started in raising cancer awareness.

You lived your life with a fierce sense of authenticity, passion and competitiveness, giving it your all and reaching for the best in everything you did. When you were diagnosed with cancer, you showed the world how to fight with that same fierce passion, instilling a sense of hope and inspiration to so many. And in the end you taught us all how to win – live or die – by how you live, why you live and the manner in which you live.

From you Dad, we’ve learned to reach for the fight we possess inside and apply it with passion to our lives. It was through your vulnerability, that you taught us the real value of strength in never giving up.

Love, Tae & Syd
(Your heartbeats)
