Daniel (Scooter) was born to the late Stephen Raymond Kemp, Sr and Mattie Kemp Jenkins on June 1, 1966.  He was raised in Omaha and made it his home.

Scooter was proud to be a Bunny at Benson High School.  Scooter went on to continue his education at Metro Community College. In 2010, he achieved and was awarded an Associate Degree in Culinary Arts.  In a short, he rose to be one of Omaha’s most popular Executive Chefs.  His management teams would often select Scooter to travel to different cities in the country.  He was tasked to establish new franchise restaurants incorporating his unique style of preparing a wide variety of dishes and meals.

Scooter’s family are members of North Omaha’s Church of the Living God.  Early this year he rededicated his life to Jesus Christ.  Scooter is known to have three (3) First, his beautiful and kind mother, Mattie Jenkins, second, his love for God and third and certainly not last is basketball.  I was delighted to learn from his family and friends that his all-time favorite player is none other than himself.
