Zachary Matthew Schwartz
August 1, 1975 – September 25, 2012

Zach Schwartz, beloved son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin, and friend, died on September 25, 2012 from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident.  Zachary grew up in the Bay Area, graduated from U.C. Davis, and received his M.B.A. from Cal Poly SLO.  Zach loved his family and friends.  He was passionate about riding his motorcycle, traveling the world, and playing rugby.  He loved the ocean and felt lucky to live steps from the beach.  He was well-read, curious, smart, opinionated, and had a wonderful wry sense of humor – all delivered in a low-key package.  He possessed a gentleness of spirit, a commitment to those he loved, and a smile that lit up a room.  Zachary, we will miss you.

Donations can be made in Zach’s memory to the Santa Monica Rugby Club.  The SMRC has established the Zach Schwartz Memorial Scholarship Fund to help support players who represent Zach’s special qualities.
