Adam Christopher Scala of Boston, Mass., passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, September 11, 2018. Adam was born to Kathleen (Smith) and Raymond Scala of Oakland, N.J. on March 5, 1983. He graduated from the Bergen Academies in Hackensack in 2001 and received his Bachelor of Science from Connecticut College in 2006. For the past 11 years he was a respected colleague at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, where he last served as the transition supervisor.


Adam (“Jersey”) was an incredibly generous, thoughtful, and attentive friend, confidant, companion, teammate, roommate, son, brother, and uncle. Adam never concerned himself with “supposed to’s” or rules, he woke up every day with the belief that people mattered, no one deserved to be treated poorly, and that he should make the most of every opportunity he is given. He was notorious for never turning down a friend in need nor skipping an opportunity for fun. He cared deeply about everyone he met and created a network of friends that is astounding in scope. Even in his relentless quest for fun, Adam was renowned for his hard work at Boston’s Federal Reserve Bank - turning a temporary position into an impressive 11-year career as a leader.


Adam is survived and missed deeply by his parents of Oakland, N.J.; his sister Elizabeth Benducci and her husband Daniel, also of Oakland; his brother Hugh; and nieces Julianna, Arabella and Talia Benducci, and nephew Aidan Scala; as well as his ‘brother’ George Baselous and ‘sister’ Jen Spero Kenney. Adam leaves behind hundreds of beloved friends who had become family.


A Visitation for Adam C. Scala will be celebrated on Saturday September 22, 2018 in the MacDonald, Rockwell and MacDonald Funeral Home, 270 Main Street Watertown from 11 am – 1 pm. Relatives and friends kindly invited.


A Memorial Mass will be held at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church in Oakland NJ on Sunday September 30th, 2018 at 2 pm. All are welcome.

In lieu of flowers, please contribute to the Adam C. Scala Scholarship Fund which will give scholarships in his memory to his high school and college.
