Michael J Zareski
May 9, 1971- December 9, 2017

Mike Zareski was aboard a small single engine airplane leaving San Diego with three friends when shortly after takeoff the engine cut out. Mike perished in the crash along with one other passenger. Mike had many friends and family who loved him dearly, most of all his wife Shanna, daughters Dani and Hannah and twin boys Drew and Chris, and his parents Susan and Norman. His absence leaves a deep void in all of our lives.

For those of you who knew my brother as “Dr. Mike” of Western Veterinary Group, I encourage you to read his wife Shanna’s letter of behalf of the practice, and hope you will continue being part of the Western Vet community.

As Shanna notes in that letter, in lieu of flowers or gifts, please consider making a donation in Mike’s memory to the 4Ever Foundation.
If you prefer to support the family directly, donations to this GoFundMe site will be used for immediate expenses and/or long term educational goals of Mike’s children.
