Wildcat Family Loss

We are deeply saddened to share that Central Washington University Vice President of University Advancement, Scott Wade, recently passed away while on vacation with his family.

Scott was a beloved leader, mentor, family man, and friend who will be missed deeply by our team, CWU, and the community.

We offer our deepest sympathy to everyone who’s lives were impacted by Scott–especially his wife and three young children.

In memoriam, you may donate to the educational funds of Avlynn, Jackson, and Eleanor Wade. Please contact David Fiske for more details at David.Fiske@edwardjones.com.

The Wade family would love for you to write your memories of Scott and messages for the children, which can be addressed to be opened now or in the future. Letters may be delivered to Stewart and Williams Funeral Home in Ellensburg.
