Photograph of Scott Marsh Cory

Born September 27, 1968, Scott Cory was from Old Lyme, Connecticut. He was a junior in Syracuse University's School of Management, and was studying abroad in London through the Division of International Programs Abroad (DIPA). Scott was survived by his parents, John and Doris Cory; and two brothers, John Jr. and James.

Scott was described by his parents as having "an infectious exuberance for life...and irrepressible sense of humor, and brought joy to those around him."

A memorial scholarship was established in Scott's name at Old Lyme High School.
