Army Chief Warrant Officer 2 Jamar was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 3rd Aviation Regiment, Hunter Army Airfield, Georgia. Jamar was killed when his UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter crashed in central Iraq. Scott grew up in Sweetwater, Texas where he was a school leader and athlete. He was also a night disc jockey for a radio station while in school and graduated in 1989 from Sweetwater High School. After high school, he attended Southwest Texas State for a year before joining the military. Scott returned from an assignment in Korea in December and left for Kuwait in January. He loved being a military pilot and wanted to make the Army his career but he almost didn't make it. He was initially turned down for being too tall in the torso. He served as a flight engineer on a Chinook helicopter then re-applied to flight school and was accepted. Before shipping out for the Gulf, Scott returned to Texas. He had just earned custody of his two boys and spent a couple of weeks with them. He didn't want to leave his sons.
