Remembering Scott

The Scott Chernack Family Fund was created in memory of Scott Chernack, a loving father, husband, son, brother and friend.  Scott’s ability to make people smile was uplifting to all who met him.  Scott lived every day with optimism, kindness and humor, which he generously shared with everyone he met.

Scott had a passion for golf and spent rare and cherished moments on the golf course.  Scott also loved football, and supported his favorite teams with the same relentless energy he used to support his family and friends.  Scott understood that the need to recharge was necessary to face daily challenges experienced while caring for his son. This fund and a yearly event were created to honor him and Autism dads in Howard County, MD.
