The Adventure Travel Community Loses a Great Friend and Colleague

It was with great sadness that we learned of the passing of Zegrahm Expeditions' Scott Fitzsimmons on April 25th. We wish to convey our heartfelt condolences to his family and to the staff at Zegrahm.  

If you had the good fortune to work with Scott or even meet him in passing at a trade show then you know what a warm, funny and intelligent person he was. He will be greatly missed by the adventure travel community. 

From Zegrahm Expeditions:

Our dear colleague and friend, Scott Fitzsimmons, lost his long and courageous battle with cancer on Monday, April 25. As you know, Scott was a part of Zegrahm Expeditions’ senior management for 13 years, serving as company president for much of that time.

A genuine friend and highly respected colleague, Scott will be remembered by everyone who had the pleasure and privilege to know and work with him for his incredibly strong work ethic; witty sense of humor; and, most importantly, a genuine interest in everyone with whom he came in contact (as well as his uncanny ability to remember even the most minute details about a person.)

Scott helped each of us at Zegrahm see the beauty of this world and he is deeply missed by all of us. A memorial service will be held—details are not yet confirmed but please continue to check our Blog for information. We encourage those who wish to post a comment or share a ‘Scott story’ to do so on our Blog.
