Jamie Scott dies of COVID-19

A Pensacola woman who was released from prison ten years ago after being convicted of a 1993 armed robbery with her sister in Mississippi and then becoming a justice advocate has died of COVID-19.

Jamie Scott died on Nov. 9 after contracting the illness caused by the coronavirus, according to a statement released Monday by the Pensacola-based organization Sisters of Hope, which she co-founded with sister Gladys Scott. She was 49.

“My sister was a fighter every day of her life, and I will continue her fight, not just for her – not just for what she stood for and what she went through – but for what she and I represent, for what others have gone through and still continue,” Gladys Scott said in a statement. “The battle is not over until everyone is treated with dignity, respect and justice.”
