  3. My heart felt condolences to Amy, daughter, parents, siblings, and the rest of the family. Seth holds a special place in my heart as we took several culinary labs together at The Art Institute as well as completed our internships together at Royal Sonesta. Those are cherished times for me. I could always count on Seth to give me his honest thoughts and have my back if needed. While we took different paths in our careers we were still connected without knowing it. Seth employed students that I teach culinary classes. I’m confident that he taught them the real hands on life of a Chef. God’s speed Seth!

    My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  12. My husband, Jerry and I were so devastated to hear of Seth’s passing. We have very fond memories of both Seth and Amy with our son Ryan in our home. My favorite one of Seth is when I woke up one morning and saw Seth and my 2 year old daughter, Anna, sitting in a chair watching cartoons. Seth was the only one who could teach Anna how to finally tie her shoes. We enjoyed the many conversations with him. Seth actually liked hanging out with us “older folks” even when the rest of their friends were downstairs. He truly became a member of our family. We were so happy when Seth and Amy finally got together – two of the absolutely nicest people! Our hearts and prayers go out to Amy and both families. Such an over whelming and tragic loss for all who knew him.
