On February 2, 2018 Scott and Christy Beary faced their worst nightmare as parents and buried their beautiful 2 week old daughter, Jocelyn Jane Beary.  

Then just five days later on February 7, 2018, Scott's life was taken from him when he was shot and killed at ShowMe's Restaurant in Florissant, MO.  

For those that did not know Scott, he was a loving husband, father, brother, son and friend to many. He was a funny, extremely caring GREAT man that would be there for you at the drop of a hat. He always had jokes and funny stories to tell.  

My name is Jeana Sellenschuetter. I had the priviledge of not only working with Scott but also the honor of being his and Christy's friend. I can't imagine the pain his wife Christy and their 3 children feel in their loss of their daughter (sister) and now her husband (their father). There is nothing anyone can say or do that will take their pain away. However...
On behalf of all that knew Scott, I would like to do what he has done for so many of his friends, family and strangers and now take care of them. I would like to raise funds for the Beary family to cover remaining medical bills and funeral expenses for Jocelyn, funeral expenses for Scott and also future expenses that Christy will now take on as a single mother.

I’m confident when I say I speak on behalf of Christy and all her family and friends, there are no words to express our gratitude for the support every single one of you have given. When setting up this gofundme for Christy, I asked myself, “What exactly is the right amount to set as the goal for her fundraiser?” With extensive medical bills, 2 funerals and being a single mother to 3 teenagers and providing for their future, I chose $50,000 as a starting point knowing her financial needs will far surpass that amount. Continued support will also help with future financial hardships regarding the unfortunate circumstances surrounding Scott’s death.
I started this campaign 4 days ago with the hopes of alleviating some of the financial burdens she will face while grieving the loss of a child and husband. I am truly in awe of the donations and support she has received from friends as well as complete strangers from all over the country. The generosity and compassion that’s been shown in this short amount of time gives me hope the donations will continue to come in for her as she faces a difficult journey ahead. Please continue to pray for Christy, their children, their family and all that knew and loved them.
