Zac's Story

Zac in Action


Sudden Cardiac Arrest took Zac's life while he was taking a nap on the afternoon of July 5, 2018. Zac was one week shy of his 18th birthday. Zac was looking forward to his senior year at John Glenn High School where he was an honor student, a standout on his high school basketball team, and in the Startup Moxie Entrepreneur's program. Zac studied hard, trained hard, played hard and napped just as hard. Zac was a son, brother, grandson, nephew, and a friend to everyone.
