Scott James Brown was born on January 7, 1972 to the late Barbara Budd Brown and James Weldon Brown at Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch, NJ. He was their only child and he was known to all as Scotty. He was known for his infectious smile and humor. He was educated in the Long Branch School System and briefly, in the Montclair, NJ School System. He graduated from Long Branch High School in 1991.
Scotty loved to read the Wall Street Journal and comment on their articles on the economy. He thrilled me with his comments whenever we got together. Scotty was so beloved by many who knew him.
Scott attended Essex County College. He began working at the Hilton Meadowlands Hotel. He was a devoted and dedicated employee. He loved to travel and embraced the island nation of the Dominican Republic by frequent visits there and acquiring citizenship status there and already being a citizen of the United States, thus giving him dual citizenship. Scotty spoke Spanish fluently. He also spoke some Portuguese and Italian. He was also a personal trainer and was certified to teach Yoga.
Scott is survived by his father James Weldon Brown; his stepmother Willie Mae Jones-Brown; step-sister Vanessa Thomas, step-brother and wife Lavell Derwin and Deborah Jones and family; step-brother and wife David and Rachelle Jones and family and step-brother Michael Jones and family; aunt and uncle Daphne and Samuel Harris and aunt Sheila Budd; cousins Christopher and Nicole Harris and family, Gerardo and Tracey Greene and family, April Harris and family, Graig Ellis and family, Kimberly Ellis and family, Jerome and Joanne Goff and family, Frank "Bubby" Jones, Richard Jones and family, Patricia Johnson, Donald and Kendra Johnson and family and Ronald Johnson and family as well as a host of other relatives and friends.
