Our dearly loved Zachary Misch, 30 years old, finished his work on the planet on February 18.  He was born full of zest, fascinated with the world, but with an oversized heart of compassion that became exhausting for him.

Even so, he became diligent with his schoolwork, thrived at his job at PriMed, and had taken up running again. He was an elected committeeman in Rumson.
Zack is survived by his extended family and the many people he touched.

Zack walked fiercely through Dante’s Inferno and Purgatory.
