On September 30th, Zack was driving to his overnight job when his car was struck by another vehicle traveling at high speeds. The next day he was planning to join his wife, Katelyn and their four young children for a family weekend. When he didn't arrive that morning, a devasting day followed when they learned he did not survive the crash.
Zack was only 33 years old and had dedicated his life to supporting his family. He loved his four children beyond measure. Zack and Katelyn built their family in an unconventional way, and have spent their life together advocating for their children and providing them with a loving and stable home. Their children, Mikey, Carmen, Rowan, and Claira were the most important people in Zack's life, along with his wife, Katelyn. His youngest daugher turned one this summer and her memories of him will live on through her siblings - ages 4, 6, and 7.
Zack's wife, Katelyn, is a reading specialist in the public school system and will now be raising the four children with the support of the family and friends Zack leaves behind. The family suffered an additional loss earlier this year when Zack's mother passed away.
We are raising money today to honor Zack and support his ever-present dedication to creating a stable and loving home for his family. We know that no amount will ever replace his presence in his family or his love for them, but we hope to help at least weather the initial storm.
