Tom Clements - A Friend and Colleague

Colorado Executive Director Tom Clements was murdered at his home in Monument, Colorado on March 19, 2013. 

After more than 30 years of service to the Missouri Department of Corrections, Tom was appointed the Executive Director of the Colorado Department of Corrections in February 2011.  Immediately upon his appointment he became an active member of ASCA.  He was an engaging participant in New Director Training, contributed significantly to the enrichment of both the Special Issue Seminars and All Director Trainings.  He more recently shared his experiences and insights in the management and operations of long-term administrative segregation facilities. His wisdom and wit were genuine and much appreciated by all with whom he came in contact. 

We certainly agree with Governor Hickenlooper's words when he said: "I have never worked with a better person than Tom, and I can't imagine our team without him." 

ASCA is a better organization because of Tom and we will miss his dedication to corrections, to his department and staff, and to the Association of State Correctional Administrators.
