Jeffrey “Scott” Nees born November 22, 1961 and passed away after 57 short years on January 1, 2019. Scott was a beloved son to Jim and Jaci Nees of Elizabeth, CO, an adoring husband to Cindy Nees of Elizabeth, CO. The youngest of three brothers, Christopher Nees (deceased) and John Nees of Longmont, CO. He was father to daughter Amber Zambai and husband Anthony, daughter Kris Zuniga and husband Jesse, Son Kenny Kurtz and wife Leona, and daughter Jessica Nees. He loved spending countless hours with his granddaughters Kayle Kurtz, Lilly Zuniga, Ava Zuniga, Mia Zambai, and Ella Zambai.
Scott was such a giver. He gave all of himself and then some. The kind of guy that put all of his heart into everything and everyone. Anytime anyone needed anything he was there to help. He always took care of everyone in his life. Scott would even spend his Monday mornings taking his father-in-law's trash out, or show up at one in the morning to fix a leaky gas pipe. He would extend his hand anytime he had even an inkling that anyone might need assistance. He was the type that loved everyone and everyone loved him even after just ten minutes of meeting him. Scott loved to laugh and make others laugh, he was always a jokester and never afraid to speak his mind.
He was passionate about his work and did his absolute best which showed through in his outstanding construction. Some called it a true work of magic and artistry. He never once had to advertise a day in his life and yet was always busy for months out. He did such outstanding work that everyone recommended him. He always said he thought a step ahead because that’s what his dad taught him.
Scott grew up in the outdoors doing anything and everything nature had to offer. He learned to waterski at a young age and enjoyed the lake. He loved boating and being on the water. Fishing was one of his biggest passions during his free time. Hiking, camping, and hunting were hobbies that filled Scott’s life. After renting snowmobiles once he was hooked and then started spending time doing that with his wife, children and even granddaughters. He was a thrill seeker and a daredevil.
Scott was caring and this showed through in all he did for every single person. He was always taking care of those around him. He was an upstanding brother and you may even confuse him for the oldest the way he looked out for Chris and John. As a husband he was romantic and a best friend. He would leave notes for Cindy by the coffee pot, on her car, even in the bathroom. He constantly surprised her with flowers or a candle lit welcome home. As a dad even though he didn’t have to be, he stepped up and was the best dad to all his kids. His five granddaughters were one of his largest joys in life.
Scott was a loving, strong, passionate, generous, outgoing, hardworking, man. He could make you laugh no matter what, and had a laugh and smile that could warm a room. He was a good man, a great friend, a noble son, and honorable father.
He leaves behind a legacy of love in all that knew him and will forever be missed. These words don’t even begin to tell the great man that Scott was and the man that will be in our hearts always.
