R. Scott Jeffery, 51, of Scranton, Hornell Native

R. Scott Jeffery

SCRANTON, Pa./HORNELL — R. Scott Jeffery, 51, of Scranton, died unexpectedly on Friday (July 7, 2017) at his home. His wife of 26 years is Karey Witushynsky Jeffery.

Born in Hornell, son of Robert Jeffery and Lois McIntosh, he was a graduate of Hornell High School and Mansfield University, and received master’s degrees from Wilkes University and the University of Scranton.

Scott was a dedicated educator and administrator who always put the betterment of his students and school community first, and had the special ability to maintain relationships and mentor his students long after graduation. As current superintendent of Lakeland School District for the past four years, he was deeply invested in his school community, and worked tirelessly to help others in any way he could.

Always a progressive leader, he received the National Superintendent Certificate to enhance his own knowledge and to better be able to enrich others. He was also serving as an adjunct professor for business finance at the University of Scranton, and previously served as superintendent of Old Forge School District, principal of Blue Ridge High School, vice principal of Western Wayne High School, and science coordinator and chemistry teacher at Abington Heights High School.

Following graduation from Mansfield University, Scott continued his baseball career as a pitcher in the Cincinnati Reds organization and later coached baseball for Abington Heights High School. Although he invested countless hours to his work, family always came first, and he had a special love for his cat, Bijoux. Scott was a devoted husband, father, son, brother and friend who was taken too soon. He will be deeply missed by his family, friends and all of the communities he has touched.

In addition to his wife, Karey, survivors include his mother, Lois (Robert) McIntosh of Pavilion, N.Y.; his father, Robert (Julie Dugo) Jeffery of Bath; two daughters, Marina and Jinelle Jeffery of Scranton; his brother, David (Rebecca) Jeffery of Cheshire, Conn.; a sister, Kerry (Chris) Davis of Hornell; maternal grandmother, Vivian Cornell of Genesee, Pa.; in-laws, Harold and Mary Ann Witushynsky of Blossburg; two sisters-in-law, Darlyn Triplett of Ann Arbor, Mich. and Lynette Olson of Blossburg; aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.

The family will receive friends on Wednesday from 9 a.m.–12:30 p.m., at the Thomas J. Hughes Funeral Home Inc., 1240 St. Ann’s St., Scranton, Pa. Following calling hours, a funeral procession will proceed from the funeral home to St. Ann’s Basilica where a Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 1 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make donations in his memory to the Lakeland School District, c/o Joe Caputo, for the purposes of scholarship opportunities for the students Scott worked so hard to serve.

From what I can piece together, his mother was the former Lois Cornell from the Ulysses area. If I'm wrong, someone please correct me. A very sad situation, so sorry for the families and friends of this fine man. Prayers to all.
