Julia Christine Scott went to be with her Savior on May 8, 2024. She was on active duty in Colorado Springs, CO at Fort Carson at the time of her passing.

Julia was born on May 24, 1987, to Ralph and Meredith (Cooper) Reddick and lived in Southfield, MI where she attended Southfield Christian School and Highland Park Baptist Church. She committed her life to following Jesus as a young child, which guided her life in large and small ways. She traveled to Uganda to serve with missionary friends and was active within her youth group, often challenging her youth pastor with hard questions. She loved animals, riding horses, training her dog, and rescuing anything she found. During high school, she was a member of the track team and choir and graduated as Valedictorian of her class in 2005. After high school, she had aspirations to study psychology and enrolled at Grove City College in Pennsylvania. She would accomplish her goal May 12, 2023, when she graduated from the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs with her Bachelor of Arts in psychology.

She met and married Thomas Scott in Love County, OK on February 14, 2012. They lived in Oklahoma, Michigan, and North Carolina before Julia enlisted in the Army in 2019 as a 46S Public Affairs Mass Communications Specialist. She loved physical and mental challenges and excelled during her years of service. She was able to distinguish herself above her peers early on in her career by competing and winning the Battalion, Brigade and Division Soldier of the Year competitions. During her time in the Army, she achieved multiple awards and commendations to include: Army Commendation Medal (3 Oak Leaf Cluster (OLC)), Army Achievement Medal (2 OLC), Army Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Ribbon, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, and the Army Service Ribbon. She was a graduate of the Basic Leaders Course and earned honors by graduating in the top 20% earning her place on Commandants List. She was a Sergeant enrolled in the Army’s Green to Gold program with the hopes of becoming an Officer.

She and Tom enjoyed riding their motorcycles together. Julia was an amazing cook and had a knack for making simple things beautiful, whether decorating her home, scrapbooking, or taking photographs. While she enjoyed taking photographs for the Army, her favorite photographs to take were of her daughters.

She is survived by her devoted husband, Thomas Scott; daughters: Alison and Madison; parents: Ralph and Meredith Reddick; sisters: Hilary Swearengen (Owen) and Alison Cornelisse (Paul). She was preceded in death by her grandparents: John and Frances (Jillson) Reddick and Frederick and Helen (Skindlov) Cooper.

A visitation will be held on Wednesday, May 22, 2024, from 4-7pm and the funeral service will be on Thursday, May 23, 2024, at 10am at the Shrine of Remembrance, 1730 E. Fountain Blvd., Colorado Springs, CO 80910, with a reception to follow at the Pikes Peak Harley-Davidson, 5867 N. Nevada Ave., Colorado Springs, CO 80918.
