Zach was one the best men in the field of emergency medicine. His love of people and his compassion for the sick and injured was an inspiration to his patients and peers alike. Never an unkind word to say, always supportive of those in need. I thank God that he allowed me to know Zach and to be inspired by his kindness, honesty, and his ever present smile. He is an example and an inspiration to us all.

Zach was one of my favorite people to work with. His wit was infectious, his kindness neverending. He loved helping others and never ran from a challenge. He left the world a better place than he found it. I am proud to say he was my brother in EMS.
Godspeed Zach, rest easy, we will take it from here.
