I have several items that instead of creating a table and storing it there, I would like to store it in memory so I can use it later.
I am new to this so please excuse the layman's verbage.

You have to add a cfapplication tag and define a session for your pages using the same application.
In the session scope you can define complex variables like arrays and structures. There you can keep your table data.

   <cfapplication name = "ETurtle"
      sessionTimeout = #CreateTimeSpan(0, 0, 0, 60)#
      sessionManagement = "Yes">

  <cfscript>
   session.employee = StructNew();
   StructInsert(session.employee, "firstname", FORM.firstname);
   StructInsert(session.employee, "lastname", FORM.lastname);
   StructInsert(session.employee, "email", FORM.email);
   StructInsert(session.employee, "phone", FORM.phone);
   StructInsert(session.employee, "department", FORM.department);
 </cfscript>
